Avoiding Fake Beagle Breeders

Jul 29, 2008
The time has come to bring a little beagle dog into your family and you have decided that you want to deal with a beagle breeder so that you know what you are getting. However, like any other industry, there are fake beagle breeders out there that are trying to scam you. You want to make sure you avoid a fake beagle breeder or else you may get an unhealthy pet that could rack up huge vet bills and cause you and your family to make difficult decisions.

One tell tale sign on whether or not a beagle breeder is legitimate is if they offer you pet insurance on your beagle to extend to after the sale. Be sure you get this guarantee in writing as many fake beagle breeders will promise you insurance and then there will be nothing when you go to use it. Insurance companies give beagle breeders free pet insurance that lasts six weeks after you have purchased your dog in the hopes you will be inspired to buy a pet insurance extension so it is no expense to a legitimate breeder.

Your relationship, and contact, with your beagle breeder is an ongoing thing that does not stop just because you took the beagle home. A legitimate breeder will be available for any beagle owner to answer questions and offer any advice you may need.

If you are calling your beagle breeder and they don't answer the phone, don't return your calls, or will not answer your questions then the chances are that you have yourself a fake breeder.

Your breeder's name is on your dog's papers and so is your breeder's reputation and a real and honest breeder cannot afford a bad reputation. A good breeder will help first time dog owners with detailed instructions about the feeding and care of your new beagle and the legitimate breeder will also send home samples of the kinds of food you should be feeding your beagle as well. No food samples, and no feeding instructions usually means a fake breeder.

There is nothing more important to your breeder for his business than his reputation for providing quality animals and being as professional as possible. If you maintain contact with your beagle breeder, and you find that you cannot keep your beagle later in its life, then the legitimate beagle breeder will take the dog back from you but without offering a refund. This way you at least know your dog will be taken care of. Fake breeders will usually not do this.

Unfortunately if you have purchased your beagle from a fake breeder then there is not much you can do beyond suing the breeder to get your money back. You are encouraged to report the breeder to the National Kennel Club but in all reality there is not a lot they can do to make your situation right.

But aside from suing there is not much you can do and that is why you should never buy a beagle from a breeder that is not in good standing with the National Kennel Club.
