Hello!

I read that beagles on average in the US can be as low as $550. I am new to Seattle and hoping to spend 800 or less. Does anyone have any suggestions for breeders nearby the are (within a 2hr drive)?

I am finding alot of difficulty with online searches. Looking to buy in 2022!

Be very careful when choosing a breeder, there are many "backyard" breeders and puppy mills out there that are very good at advertising pure bred beagles. My beagles are always rescues, so many nice beagles in shelters.

I got a pedigreed Beagle puppy, male, from a breeder in Ontario, California (near Los Angeles) for $350 in year 2005. I think that was the going price at the time. By now, my opinion is that Between $550 and $800 would be a very reasonable price. To find a nearby breeder, just Google, "Breeders, Beagle Seattle". Whatever price you end up paying, getting a Beagle Puppy my well be the best decision of your life.

You may want to contact your local beagle rescue - often they have very young dogs and rescuing is always an excellent option.

I am getting a purebred puppy this time around (my Ally passed in 2019). Beagles from show champion lines go for about $1400 - 2500. I also caution to be wary of backyard breeders and puppy mills. In reading up on breeders, I had no idea how many there were and how they disguise themselves. I also learned about puppy brokers also (who buy from a backyard breeder but pretend they are selling for a friend, etc) - internet puppy purchases are often brokers.
Here's some good articles to get started: How to Spot a Puppy Farm - The Happy Puppy Site and this one gives a breakdown of puppy mills by state

Breed rescue is always as good start as someone else mentioned. AKC has a list of beagle breeders on their site, but careful, I have found some not so good breeders. National Beagle Club website also has a breeder list. Mostly these are show breeders and cost quite a lot.

Good luck in your search!

We got my current beagle 15 years ago for $200 in Michigan, which I thought was a lot at the time haha. I guess he was a backyard breeder, but we went back to visit him a few years later. Seemed like an honest breeder. Had a coffee table with a swastika on it 😳 and fed his fat beagles chocolate oreos, but other than that seemed like a decent guy.
