Well thanks to you all for making us feel so welcome. I really wish we had a big beagle community in England but the beagle is just not as popular as it is in the states.

Its amazing though how many miles apart we are yet all beagles sound identical with their traits.

Good to have another Brit on here. I come from a little hot spot of British beagle ownership, regretably because we have an extremely disreputable breeder just ten miles up the road. I think my Ella is now up to 4 beagle and 2 beagle-cross friends on our little route and we all have our tales to tell of the hard work involved!

Hi Shep, where abouts are you from? You are not from Lincolnshire aswell are you because i know where i got Poppy from is a bad place, a puppy farm infact which i did not realise when i first got there. When we went into the barn there was all sorts of dogs, like pugs, westies, scotties & so on. Then there was just 2 beagles left, no parents as they must of been bought in. They were in terrible condition, Poppy infact had terrible kennel cough but we just had to rescue her. My only regret is that i should of took her sister aswell but the price of beagles here is through the roof so i couldnt afford her sister. They also have a reputation of selling beagle cross harrier's & selling them as pedigree beagles, even making fake pedigree's up which arent worth the paper they are written on!

Hi Jennifer! I see there are a few brits on here.

Shep, it is really sad to see things like that. People look down at me because Poppy came from a puppy farm, i mean they think im supporting them because i bought from them but the way i see it is that these dogs have to go somewhere one way or another so why not into a loving home where they will be stood by their whole lives? But then puppy farms sell to anyone hence why there are so many beagles at the beagle welfare. It breaks my heart when people give their beagles up because they have no idea about the breed. You can read all you wany about the beagle but nothing prepares you like the real thing, you just have to never give up, for me the first 2 years were real hard but since then it just gets easier. Some people expect their dogs to be fully trained within the first year but thats not the case with a beagle.
