I have had beagles for as long as I can remember. I ran grade dogs until a couple of years ago. I was looking for good dogs, and had trouble finding something I liked. I started looking for reputable breeders and have been having a ball ever since. My first dog is a Shorts Robo bitch. Great nose, super line control, and a nice medium speed dog. She is going to have my first litter in a couple of weeks. I have another shorts bred male who runs a little harder and hunts harder. I just bought a deacon male out of a blackjack bitch. He looks to be a promising derby. And my last beagle is a blackjack bitch out of a sister to cranks chicken. She is just getting started but looks good so far. I am a rabbit hunter first, but would like to trial a little if I have time and its close to home. I really enjoy top quality rabbit dogs and enjoy the people who raise and train them. What does everybody else run?
I run 15" B&T Woodpont hounds... heavy indian hills and new city... a strong medium speed hound... I believe my mentor classifies them as "Reckless Abandon" when it comes to check and line work. Chase to catch... I am entering my first ARHA Little Pack trial next weekend... anxious and nervous... but it will be fun.
