Welcome to TESSILAS, breeder of the Miniature American Shepherd, or in short the MAS.

The MAS has been provisionally recognized as a breed by the FCI since April 9, 2019, and the breed association of the ASCN (Australian Shepherd Club Nederland) promotes the interests of the MAS in addition to the interests of the Australian Shepherd.

Our goal is to breed healthy, characterful and willing to work dogs, where we do not want to ignore the original appearance and character of the MAS!

Enjoy reading!
