Our Puppies

Unlike pet stores and backyard breeders, buying a puppy from a Reputable Breeder can be a strange, lengthy process. Here is a brief guideline how to get started:

  1. Research. A lot. Learn the pros of the breed but be sure to research the cons and if they are something you are willing to work with.

  2.  Reach Out. You can start by sending me an email about yourself, arranging a phone call or fill out one of my puppy applications.

  3. Be Patient. Families who are interested in not only a Beagle but one of my Beagles should be expected to wait anywhere from 12-24 months as I breed very selectively. Buying a reputable purebred dog is a process and I do require those interested to be approved for my waitlist.

  4. Ask Questions. I'm happy to help in any way possible. Whether its something you read online about Beagles that you want more information on or you have questions about my own dogs, please reach out. The more I get to know my potential homes, the more excited I am to place one of my puppies in their care for the puppies lifetime. In the end, I only want what is best for my puppies.

Information

CKC REGISTERED BEAGLES

What is the cost of a Puppy?

A FoxFire Beagle puppy costs $2,000 and require a $300 non-refundable deposit once the puppy is born to confirm your spot in the litter. Prices are not negotiable in any way.


Once puppies are born, I reach out to those my wait-list. If you are not ready for a puppy at that time, you will save your spot of priority on my list for a future litter.  Deposits are $300 and are non-refundable as I do expect commitment from my homes I have selected.

Mycompanion/pet puppies are registered on a non-breeding agreement with the Canadian Kennel Club and MUST be spayed or neutered at the age outlined in my contract.

Health Testing

I firmly believe in setting my puppies up with the best possible success in their futures. Because of this, I ensure to extensively health test my Beagles and carefully select Sire's for our litters who are also health tested and clear of genetic diseases that can affect Beagles. 

Our Beagles are tested/cleared in the following:

  • OFA Passing Hip Rating 

  • OFA Heart Normal

  • Full Embark DNA Panel & tested for 160 Genetic Diseases

  • All non-affected in MLS, PRA and Factor VII

  • OFA Eyes Normal

  • Full Thyroid Panel

  • Lafora Genetic Test (hereditary, myoclonic epilepsy)

Socialization

With my breeding program, I use both the Puppy Culture Program and the Avidog Transformational Puppy Rearing Program when rearing and training my young beagle puppies beginning right at birth. Throughout the Neonatal Stage, Transitional Stage and onward to the Sensitive Period, I have practices put in place to help with early brain development that help shape my puppies into well balanced adult dogs who handle stress better as adults as well have great trainability factors. Not only do these programs set the puppies up with the best advantage to be well socialized family pets, it is also an excellent foundation for those looking for a Beagle to be competitive in the performance and/or conformation ring.

The Responsible Breeder vs. The Backyard Breeder

The hardest thing I had to learn when seeking a well-bred Purebred dog was patience. I cannot stress how important it is to give yourself time to find not only the right puppy, but the right breeder for you. You need to be expected to wait for a quality dog anywhere from 6 months to sometimes 2 years.

And trust me, I get it. The Kijiji ad that says "$400 Purebred Beagle Puppies Available!" can be awfully tempting and an easy decision to make. But, be aware that with an inexpensive dog can often come heart break and unpredictable expenses in many other forms. As a preservation breeder, I do not make money on my litters. All the money from my litters goes directly back into my dogs whether it be stud fees, further health testing, entry/trial fees or just simple breeding costs. I do not breed for profit. Period.

What a responsible breeder can guarantee is that they have done everything possible to provide you with the healthiest puppy they can which has been genetically health tested to ensure as such. Back yard breeders simply do not do this. Why? Because it costs money and unlike Responsible Breeders, they are out to make a profit on their puppies.

As far as Beagles go, new owners need to be aware of the difference of hunting line beagles vs well-bred performance/show line Beagles.

 

In my experience, hunting lines are much harder to live with, they are significantly louder and more destructive in the home. Backyard bred beagles that often appear on sites like kijiji or craigslist are typically listed at a lower cost because they are not registered with the Canadian Kennel Club nor are they health tested. If you truly love the breed from its temperament to it's look, I would highly recommend avoiding a cheap beagle puppy.

BYB Beagle Puppy

Above pictured is a  Backyard Bred Beagle Puppy. Although cheaper in price, it is not your typical tri-coloured hound type and will not grow up with a sweet, plushy expression as a beagle should have. It has not been health tested and has VERY poor structure which could lead to injuries when it matures in to an adult. 

Well-Bred Beagle Puppy

Above pictured is a Well-bred,purebred, health tested beagle puppy that is beautiful in type, expression, temperment and structure. This puppy was bred with purpose and care and although more expensive that the above puppy, the quality speaks for itself.

Resist the Greed; Don’t Support Backyard Breeders.
