The Truth About Beagle Breeders

Jan 30, 2008
Due to the growing popularity of beagles, there has been a rise in the number of dishonest beagle breeders and puppy mills in this country that supply their dogs to the pet stores. These dogs are often sick or dying when delivered, due to the horrendous conditions in which they are forced to live. These puppy mills breed their dogs in terrible conditions, and very rarely deliver healthy dogs to the pet stores. This makes it an almost certainty that any pup bought from one of these stores will be sick or dying when you get it home. By doing the right amount of research, and only purchasing your pups from a well respected breeder, you can help do your part to put these terrible puppy mills out of business. Remember, a well respected beagle breeder would never supply pups to a pet store, so by staying away from pet stores you can help to better ensure you are getting a healthy beagle pup.

There is a growing epidemic in this country. A recent spike in the popularity of beagles has led to the rise of a great many dishonest beagle breeders who run puppy mills to meet the growing demand for these sweet little dogs. These puppy mills, as a general rule, supply the majority of pet stores in this country; which is why many would-be beagle owners wind up taking sick or dying dogs home with them.

Even honest pet storeowners are buying these puppy mill pups, never knowing that they are purchasing unhealthy dogs from a dishonest beagle breeder. The only real way that you can be absolutely certain that you are getting a healthy beagle these days, is to be certain that you only buy a pup from a well respected beagle breeder that your trusted vet has experience with. This will help you to ensure that your new pup has received the proper care and treatment before being delivered to you.

The biggest issue with a dishonest breeder is that they will often continue to interbreed their dogs, so as to produce the largest amount of pups. Since beagles are prone to certain genetic health issues to begin with, this is a very dangerous practice. An honest beagle breeder recognizes the danger of interbreeding so many generations without bringing in any new blood, and will absolutely refuse to do so. They will try to keep the genetic lines as far apart as possible, so as to prevent further aggravation of these conditions.

It is a sad shame that so many pet storeowners are unable to distinguish an honest beagle breeder from a dishonest one. But so many pet storeowners are simply concerned with keeping up with the growing demand for beagle pups, that they never take the time to research the conditions the dogs they are buying come from.

An honest beagle breeder will generally do as much research about the person who wants to buy a pup from them, as you should be doing about the breeders. It is not uncommon for an honest beagle breeder to refuse to sell a pup to someone, simply because they do not believe that the person is ready for the responsibility of taking care of a beagle in the way they deserve. But you don't have to be one of them.

Understanding that beagles require extra care and medical attention because of the many years when interbreeding was such a common practice, is the first step to becoming the owner of one of these sweet little dogs. Having the responsibility to carefully research any beagle breeder you are considering buying a pup from is the second step. By refusing to buy pups from pet stores supplied by puppy mills, you can rest assured that you are doing your part to ensure a long and healthy future for these little dogs.
