Probably 90% of the beagles sold here are hunting beagles, there's only a few beaglers out here that breed for show. It's a heavy hunting state, so beagles are the most common working dog being sold along with labs and pointers. Hunting beagles run from as low as $25.00-$200.00 whereas show beagles cost anywhere between $400.00-$1,000.00. Beagles are just used for different things in the UK, I guess. I've talked with a lot of English folk who have beagles and the beagles even LOOK different, it's crazy. (Compare Dax, a beagle in England, To Jayne, a beagle in Wisconsin )

Harriers look like beagles with long legs.
picture is from petfinder

If the dog did not hunt well, many hunters will dump it, give it away, or sell it cheaply - just to get rud of it.

beagles, like people come in all sizes. yes standard says 15 inchs. but offcourse many can go over it. my beagle is about 17 inchs at his withers.

Any breed can and does go over (or under) standard. I know a great dane thats about 23 inchs at the withers. pretty small girl. but she is 100% a dane

Default Tall Beagle?

I paid 800 for Brynn (about 1200 US dollars) most of the best breeders in the UK breed for the purpose of showing. I dont know of any that breed for hunting. Brynn begins his (and mine) show career next month

Low prices doesn't mean low quality, though. For what I paid for Jayne, she's the smartest, healthiest beagle I've ever owned.

If buying froma breeder. I dont see how they could affored to show/trial their dogs, raise a litter properly, health tests cost 100's per dog, ect and sell for 200 bucks a pup. raising a well bred litter costs 1000's of dollars


So IMO when I see a dog going for 200 bucks or so. I question, why? Since it sends red flags to me.

The guy that I bought Jayne from didn't show or trial, he just loved to hunt with his dogs. He bred the dogs that produced the best results for him and kept his best pups. He had a huge farm and an enormous, clean indoor and outdoor area for his dogs. Judging by what I saw, I'd say that his day job must pay a lot of money because they were damn fine dogs kept in damn fine conditions. He invested a lot of love into those dogs and their lives, you can't always judge a breeder or his dogs by a price tag.
