Why Did the Breeder Refer to This Red Australian Shepherd Puppy as Turquoise?

I would like to share her pretty red face with light eyes. I'm getting her in 3 days. She is a puppy.

I'd like to know why the breeder referred to her as turquoise? Is it a reference to her eyes?

I'm naming her Chessy for her chestnut coat. She's a little tyke but goes to the door and out to the grass by a barn to do her business.

I have a completely fenced in yard and my house dates to 1862 and I have the original two-story horse barn with a three-seater privy. Plenty of old barn smells I hope Chessy likes.

I can't wait for any help I can get since I'm new to this breed. I've had Border Collies and a blue merle Sheltie.

Thanks in advance for helping me!

Turquoise??

Hi! She’s a sweetheart!! I’d ask the Breeder your question as they made the statement re: turquoise.

I had a Border Collie previously and I am finding my Australian Shepherd much smarter; very quick to catch on to words and not afraid of thunder one bit - bonus.

Wishing you & Chessy many days of enjoyment!!

It is probably the color of collar the breeder put on her for identification. They use different colors to make sure the purchaser gets the right one.
