Back in 2005, we bought out our first beagle home. Her name was Bracken, a tri-colored girl with the sweetest little face.

We collected her from a local breeder, with who we have become friends. I’ll never forget the first day, collecting this little 10-week old pure-bred beagle puppy.

Bracken the best Beagle ever
Bracken when she was around 3 years old. Sadly she is no longer with us, only in memory.

Sam (the breeder) shed a few tears that day as it was the last puppy of her first-ever litter of beagles.

I remember her waving us off and wishing us good luck!

Those first 8 months or so were a shock.

We were a young married couple with our first ever dog so everything was a steep learning curve, but it was also a lot of fun.

That was the start of our love for beagles, a journey of frustration, sometimes sadness but always fun and loving.

Beagles are the most loving hounds. Loyal to a fault, never complaining, always eating!

Beagles make wonderful family pets and companions but can be a challenge. Beagles are stubborn and wilful, two attributes that can get them into trouble more times than I care to remember!

We set this blog up so anyone interested in adopting a beagle can find answers to questions they may have and perhaps learn from our experiences.

If you have a question that we have not answered on this blog we’d love to hear from you.
