Hi! Laney here to tell you a bit more about Fine and Dandy Aussiedoodles.
My husband and I decided to leave our overly busy lives in Nevada for a simpler lifestyle where we could focus on our Fine and Dandy breeding program.
This new, more peaceful life found us in the mountains of Western North Carolina near Asheville. We live on the banks of the Pigeon River, where we chose to lay our roots and build a Fine and Dandy lifestyle for ourselves and our Mini-Australian Shepherds, Moyen Poodles and Mini Aussiedoodles.
Red (Brown) Bi
Red (Brown) Tri
The striking coat patterns and colors of Australian Shepherds seem to draw folks in like bees to honey. Colors range from black to red to grey (called "blue" in the dog world) with black or red mottling called "merle."
The black and red coat combinations have names like Black Tri, Black Bi, Red Tri, Red Bi. And, the merles are most commonly known as either Blue Merle or Red Merle. "Tri" means the dog has three colors, while "Bi" means the pup sports two colors.
Have you noticed some Aussies have a red nose and lips while others have a black nose and lips? The black or red pigment of the nose, lips, and eye rims depends on the coat's color. Red coats have red noses, while blue and black coats have black noses.
We've done a great deal of research into the genetics of our dogs to produce the healthiest, most beautiful Doodle pups. Knowledgeable breeders can broadly plan a litter of puppies who will tend to look a certain way. Did you know? A red dog bred with another red dog will usually make red puppies; however, a black dog may have either black or red puppies if it carries the red gene.

nestled in the mountains
A peaceful Life in the Mountains
Brad owned and ran a landscaping business for forty years doing hard labor in the intense heat. I worked for over 20 years in Real Estate and ran my own bookkeeping company.
While we loved our lives in the western United States, we also dreamed of cultivating the land, growing vegetables and flowers, planting trees, and even having bees. Brad and I researched all sorts of hobby farming possibilities. We also began a small hobby breeding program for Mini Aussiedoodles. Unfortunately, the Nevada climate proved tough on the dogs and us, and it was time to find trails and paths for our dogs to play.
So, when an opportunity to jump toward that dream arose, we knew the time was right for a change of pace!
We knew we wanted to invest in our dogs and launch our farm, so we found a beautiful property in the Appalachian Mountains along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The climate is such that we all can be much more active throughout the entire year, whether running our fields, swimming, or hiking. We have much more freedom and space to raise beautiful puppies and dogs, giving them the high-quality life they deserve! Plus, Brad and I get to slow down, embrace an enriching mountain lifestyle, and enjoy life to its fullest!
