Over 20+ years of experience has gone into
developing our exclusive house pet variety beagle bloodline. We continue
to develop our beagles' luxurious coats & stunning colors, and overall
family-oriented wonderful companion pet traits in our pure bred beagle
Since our pets are not allowed to go
into any breeding programs & are purely for those looking to raise up
a companion beagle with exceptional traits to be just right for an indoor
pet, only we have this unique and exquisite companion pet bred &
raised bloodline. We are not breeding for hunting abilities & mindset,
and rather than simply focusing on show worthy looks, we aim to improve
our beloved beagles in all areas for the pet-home. Our beagles are a
result of our over 20+ years experience selectively breeding for wonderful
homebody & indoor housepet qualities, handpicking puppies that time
after time we (Miss Christina, & kids: Christi & Cody) were
impressed with, and just had to keep for ourselves to enjoy &
reproduce for others to love!
We start them off right, hand raising
our babies from birth, and bringing our infants into the comforted and
loving family atmosphere from the start. We tend to their needs with all
our time, guidance, & the best we can offer, just as we expect from
the devoted pet homes they go into, once they're ready to bond & begin
learning their forever pack order & household rules. The nature
of our homey, family raised puppies really makes a wonderful difference as
they go into their responsible & approved pet homes. As an approved
adoptee, you can learn from our years of experience, and then follow our
Guidance as your take over raising your new family-oriented sunshine
beagle baby, and shaping them into your very own unique Companion

comfortable in moving forward, and we do not have a "customer service" phone

We invite you to explore and

Unlike many other beagle puppy websites now out on the internet, where you can
see a picture of a puppy and right then and there click on “Buy me Now” without
knowing anything about how it was raised, by whom, or what their mission has
been over the years in developing their line of beagle, we instead want you to
know who we are and why we devote our lives to selectively breeding for homebody
qualities in our Sunshine Acres Beagle Puppy bloodline, and care where they go
and who they are adopted by. We stay in touch over the years and our many
followers send us many qualified referrals of friends who have met their
sunshine beagle, and want to bring one home of their own. Don’t be put off by
the fact that we’re interested in knowing all we can about your home, please
show your sincerity by including family details, where your puppy will sleep and
play, so that we can get to know more about you as a prospective adoptive family
for one of our family members. We also encourage you to view our virtual tour of
our home. This is not a kennel facility, this is an acreage property with
gorgeous huge shady woods surrounding our home where our beagles get plenty of
exercise and have a social life with their friends and our family. Since we have
a nationwide following, we provide this information on our website so that
thousands of homes across America have access and we don’t have to stop our
daily care of our little ones to answer the same repetitive questions day in and
day out, its all here for you to explore and learn about us and our beagles
before taking the next step and seeking our help in matching your family and
homelife to the appropriate family oriented beagle puppy who was meant to be
your lifelong companion pet!
These are quotes from some of
our recent emails that show why we do what we do. Its not as simple as click on
a picture and add it to a shopping cart, but why would you want to buy from a
breeder who's okay with that, not type of a home
their baby was meant for? We're not about making a sale, we're about making a
lifelong committed match for our unique family oriented beagle puppies and their
forever happy families who stay in touch!

books and searching the net, we figured out that getting a dog was much

description of puppy mills, I will never go

it’s one of the reasons that I'm sure that we are ready for this. I don't

is very informative and the beagle pictures make us smile instantly.

It is also very obvious that you are proud of your beagles..
We would very much like you to consider allowing us to adopt one of
your Sunshine Acres beagle pups.
||I stumbled across your website last year when my
husband mentioned that he has always been interested in a Beagle as a family
dog. I am a dog lover and I have always owned a dog but I did
not know much about Beagles- other than the fact that they are very
cute. Several friends warned us about the negatives regarding
beagles (the traits we now understand are based on the fact that Beagles
have been raised to hunt). I was so impressed by your website and all the
information you give regarding Beagles and all the care you give raising
hand held puppies. And after much research, we feel that a
puppy from Sunshine Acres is exactly what we are looking for to add
to our family.
We want to start this email by saying "THANK
YOU" for ending our search of the perfect beagle baby! We have been
wanting to add a beagle puppy to our family for several months now and
have come to the realization that there are not very good breeders in
Virginia. Most of the puppies seem to come from puppy mills, sold
for a quick profit and not well cared for. They also seem to be bred
from hunting lines which as you have made very clear on your website that
these do not good companions make. We decided it was time to look
outside the state line and came across your website where we were so
impressed and thrilled to have found exactly what we are looking for! So
again, thank you! Your website was so informative and we actually
really loved going through all that you had to offer as far as tips and
information about your family, 19 years of experience and of course ALL

Our family's devotion

family-oriented beagle puppies for companion pet homes is a mission that
requires unlimited devotion at all hours of the day and night. When one
thinks of raising puppies, the focus may often rest on the privilege of
cuddling such adorable
babybeagles, which is an enjoyment beyond words. The magnitude,
however, of properly raising these little family members from the day they
enter this world to the day they are ready to enter their forever homes to
begin adapting and learning the ways of their unique lifelong household is
an unparalleled aspiration that has fully captivated our very lives.
The nature of our
homey, family raised puppies really makes a wonderful difference as they
go into responsible pet homes. We start them off right, hand raising our
babies from birth, and bringing our infants into the comforted and loving
family atmosphere from
the start. As each puppy is born into the world, we are right there with

a mom and two kids, we have worked hard all of our lives towards our
dreams for Sunshine Acres, and have come a long way over the years and are
proud of what we have accomplished. Building the whelping nursery room was
definitely a major help in our efforts, whereas before moms had their
puppies in our bathroom floor, now they have their own areas inside with
automatic waterers and doggy
doors to go outside and
get exercise as they please, helping the production of milk for their
babies. The newborns have comfy sheets that rest upon warm heating
pads, beneath the
glow of heating lamps which can be turned on or off as needed. These first
two weeks consists primarily of nursing & sleeping, and we are cooking up
plenty of nutrient
rich, milk-producing treats and food for mom to eat
while constantly nursing & taking care of their newborns. We make watching
over (and snuggling!) the newborns our number one priority during this
crucial time. Throughout each and every day we pick up our puppies, cuddle
them, and talk to them. We truly believe they can hear us even during
those infant days; their eyes may be closed those first 2 weeks of life,
but those ears are often seen perking up at our voice, an always
enchanting sight to see.
As they open their eyes around 2 weeks
old, this time when we hold them, they can see who we are! They stare with
those big, innocent eyes and have this look on their face as though they
are thinking “It’s you, I know you, wow…” They are just taking it all in
and connecting the dots, remembering our touch from their first weeks of
life. It’s the most amazing thing to see, and such an honor to be a part
3rd week with newly opened eyes, the puppies are getting up, interacting
with each other and learning even more about gentle human contact. They
have been handled and spoken to from birth, and once their eyes open they
can begin learning from their human caregivers.
Teeth start coming in at 3 weeks,
and over the week mommies begin spending less and less time constantly
tending to the puppies & cleaning up
them. The puppies start eating canned Eukanuba
&/or Iams Puppy food for a few days, then with dry Small Breed Puppy
mixed in, until finally learning to eat just the dry kibble and drink
water versus momma's milk. We introduce them to their toys, and
consistently remind them that their toys are good to chew on and play
with. During this time they have begun socializing, and focusing on their
human caregivers rather than mother Dog for all their needs, and learn to
look to humans for both love and instruction.
By the time they leave our home &
hands, she is out of the picture, making for a much easier transition to
life in a human family.
We begin the babies on learning to use
paper, and keep their bed clean. When they go onto the paper to go, we say
“hurry up” so they can begin associating that word with go to the
bathroom, making for easier potty breaks in the future if consistently
used in their new home. We place a clean sheet of newspaper over where
they went, and the next time the go onto the paper they will walk over
that area and then be able to smell where they had gone previously. Since
dogs are scent triggered, they will know they are to go there again for
hurry-ups. Then we periodically clean out the whole setup and start over
with fresh paper and bed so that the room is always pleasant smelling!
We give our puppies de-wormer at 2
weeks old, and do so routinely every 2 weeks- worms & eggs can be easily
picked up in the soil by any dog anywhere and the whole process can start
all over, so we give it regardless of whether they have them or not. We like to do the puppies’ shots in
front of their new owner, and put the label off of the vial onto the
health records so that the customer can tell their vet that they saw the
shot done and won’t be forced to repeat that shot for a fee, which some
vets do on the basis that many breeders say they do shots but didn’t.
Therefore we like to do it in front of the person so folks know it was
done, and can more easily avoid that unnecessary expense. The label also
shows exactly what is in the shots so the vet can see what has been given.
We tend to our puppies’ needs with all
our time, guidance, & the best we can offer, just as we expect from the
devoted pet homes they go into, once they're ready to bond & begin
learning about their forever pack’s order. At this innocent yet attentive
homecoming stage, they are eager to learn from everything around them, and
they absorb interaction like a sponge, making it one of the best times to
introduce them to lifelong habits.
As puppies develop, they will seek
masters who can show them the right way to living a long healthy & happy
lifestyle, and they trust following those masters who prove to make the
best decisions for the pack as a whole, therefore it is important for the
forever family to guide their adaptation to the unique home & lifestyle,
so the puppy can more easily understand that this human pack has
boundaries for a reason- for the good of the pack, and can learn what they
need to do to fit in & start living in harmony!
From their first day home they will
begin learning the best way to fit into their unique pack, and can adapt
to any lifestyle that they begin learning from. This is the time to guide
their adaptation; Be a responsible master for your learning and growing
puppy by understanding each situation, responding correctly so that your
puppy understands the pack lesson, & committing to a responsible
instruction plan. You can lead the way with the benefit of our years of
experience raising companion beagle pets.

We hand raise our baby beagles in our home, not in cages like
We don't use wire floor pens off the ground, or boring and
monotonous cement floor kennel runs with chain link fences, or like other breeders do...
WE believe this is why our pups are well
socialized with children,
and other animals to fit into family life & a great pet lifestyle!
(Pups from 3 different litters hang out on the bed with the
kids while they watch a movie.)
dogs raised in cages, or kennel runs, are not often handled and
can be nervous, and uneasy with new people or animals.
When you purchase a Sunshine acres beagle puppy, you receive a new puppy
care package from the Iams and Eukanuba company with a book on what to do for
your new family member, a bag of the food they have been eating, a health
folder with the pups health records showing shots, including the labels off
the shot vials, de-wormings, and vet follow-up
dates. Current shot series done,
health folders provided. We provide proof of shots vs most local
breeders who don't. This saves you having to repeat those vet visits for
shots and wormings.
If you hadn't already sent your own choice of
toys for your new family member to enjoy while growing up here, we often include toys,
greenies or rawhide chews as we have them if you'd like, so
that they have something familiar to play with. You are welcome to bring a blanket, or toy to rub on
the littermates or send something to go in with the litter to take home with their scent, so the first night away from
home isn't so hard.

All our adult dogs & ancestors are American
Kennel Club registered so you know they come from
Purebred Pedigreed Parents.
We provide copies of both parents/ancestor's papers to our customers to verify this.
In order to avoid other breeders from trying to
purchase and use our pet
only puppies in their breeding programs we do not individually register the litters. We do not sell our pets to hunters or breeders, only pet homes,
so our dogs are DNA tested to prevent breeding of our very special less shedding
and rare colored house pets. Even having one litter by one of our Sunshine Acres
Beagles is not allowed, and we will not make exceptions or grant
individuals registration of their puppy in order to do this.
Our sincere wish is that each one of our babies just be a spoiled
pampered house pet in a Loving family home!

purchased for selective breeding have always been pure

In the event the
mother or father of a litter came from the breeding of two registered parents
and their pups were not registered we will be happy to provide the grandparents
to show they are from purebred beagle ancestors. the papers arent why our
customers buy their family pet from us... the many hours we spend with their
future family member, and the years of selective breeding to achieve the best
coats, and temperaments and desireable qualities for indoor companionship are
what make our puppies so special folks come back for more !
Pregnant Bonnie in our Whelping Room
Bonnie had her puppies!
breeders in our area dont have pups during the cold months due to
the fact that their dogs are out in cages up off the ground and its nearly
impossible to heat those open cages for newborns to survive outside the
way they raise pups in wire boxes vs indoors, like we raise
our baby beagles on heated whelping areas with heat lamps in the ceiling
above for warmth.
our moms get a whelping area with a doggie door that allows
them to go out when they like
they have automatic water so its always fresh, and as the puppies get old
enough we move them away from mom for short periods onto paper in a low box
with a bed and toys on one side..
Daisy raises her newborn puppies, and as they grow they begin going on
paper vs bedding, eating dry food, and she begins spending less and less
time in with them and they begin focusing on their human caregivers!
Some families have gone home and
made their own box from wood, to be able to have their pup in the main
room with them at first when they bring it home... this is a great idea !
Especially if your family is waiting to take one home .. there is time to
locate everything and make it.. one family said it was a nice family project
to make while they waited on their choice to be old enough to come stay in
ok, I know
, I know...
My favorite "Grace"
likes to be in all the pictures she can... LOL !! especially since she and I
are constantly doing things together.. she is such a great
companion ... going everywhere i go from room to room !
a bathtub also works well... just so they
have a choice of bed, or go onto paper ... we pick them up as youngsters and
put them on the paper so they learn to go after naps, and food, or water...
within 5-10 min. a pup will need to go... then as they learn this they spend
less and less time with their mom until they are weaned from her. Once
this is accomplished they move to a higher oak box, or tub, and spend some
time alone, and with other pups ...to socialize them.
as you can see this pup is sitting in a bathtub with a cuddler bed on one end and paper on the other side..
this is the easy way to housebreak a new pup. when you have
time take them outdoors too, and soon they are going to the door to go
I met with a couple recently
who said they wanted one of our puppies because of the previous beagle they
got from a hunter... they told us it was so hard to housebreak it
took a year and then wasnt trustworthy , they too felt it was the wire
floors when they are learning to go that made it not see the reprecusions of
going where you sleep... it just drops through..
no labor involved for the hunter/breeder who raised it that way , but alot more work for the new family teaching it manners and cleanliness in the
Time is money, we devote many hours hand raising our puppies,
to be loving loyal lap dogs.
Content to be by the fireplace or cuddled on the couch with the kids.
Cage raised pups, are easier to raise for a
breeder, with not as much time or care devoted, but this can make them difficult
to house train,
not content to stay in your yard.
they become a constant problem with escapes

Our keeper puppy Grace!
isn't she what you'd rather have?
root of our bloodline begins up in the North West
Show Champion and Companion Dog Titled CDX winners. not bred for
Not too long ago I had a call from a retired couple who had called at a time
when we were sold out of puppies last summer. they decided not to wait on
our next litter and purchased one of the many pups advertised in
Mooresville by a breeder who was thrown out of AKC. He
now not only raises some of his hunting stock pups for his hunting purposes, but
has puppy mills in the mountains where he purchases pups they bring
entire litters to him weekly to resell in the Charlotte market. His
ad is on a reduced rate with the observer since he has one at just about all
times. It says "super pretty" about every litter.
Most of which he has for only days before selling to the pet market.
A lady who had gone to look at his pups years ago told us when she asked about
the mom to the litter he got out a scrawny old female and the second he set her
down on the ground she lit off for the woods behind his kennel like a flash. the
lady said I didn't get to see anything but her tail going into the brush to
He provides no health folder w/ proof of
shots, worming or vet checkups, no papers and certainly no follow up
to those with questions or requests for referrals. I have over the past
few years talked to many of his customers who have made the mistake of going for
the cheapest beagle pup advertised.. and just like this couple they find out
later the dog is miserable being inside and wants nothing more than to climb
over their fence or dig under it as this couple reported...to get out to the
nearby woods. The man asked if I knew of anyone who would want his year
old beagle male now ..he described how it walks back and forth at the sliding
glass door crying to go out... constantly no matter how much they try to spend
time with him in the house.. once let out he knows exactly where the
squirrels are in the trees and once they jump to a tree outside the yard the dog
goes nuts pacing back and forth at the rear of their 2 acre fenced in yard.. he
said " he can climb right over just like your web site says...
I remember you telling my wife the hunters had a climbing gear and we didn't get
it ..till now."
"what can we do, we have raised him inside and
he's not happy! we don't want to give him to a hunter to put our boy in a
cage, but he is too much work for us to keep chasing.. I wish we had listened to
you then. can you help us find a home where he can be. He is blue
ticked, meaning so many spots you cant see his white legs.. (big time hunting
instinct dogs) he is crate trained, someone will want him wont
they?, we just want to start over and get one of yours like some friends of ours
did.. that is the nicest house pet he goes out to do his business and play and
comes right back when the owner calls. "
I said what can I say, I told you so.. you
aren't the first with this problem and wont be the last, as long as hunters
don't care who they sell to. I have customers who value their time
and want indoor companions THEY don't want to be off in the
neighborhood chasing this dog either. If I found him a home he would just do the
same thing to the next home. I can only talk to some of the hunters I know to
see if one will take him. I did locate a home for him with one. We
do some rescue work with beagles who get out and get lost on occasion so they
wont end up at the pound , get adopted by a family as a pet and go through the
escaping over and over with new adoptive families..
Imagine buying a beagle puppy that has been raised in a wire
floored cage like this.... they are very difficult to house train since from
birth they never learned what happens if they "go" where they sleep etc.... in a
wire cage it falls thru the floor . much less they haven't been held or cuddled
daily like ours !!
so often they are skittish and haven't been socialized with other dogs or kids.
(these cages are needed though to keep the adult dogs at home , the instinct to
get loose and track animals is bred into them)
(This is how hunting hounds are caged)
I stopped at a hunting supply store a while back where they used
to sell lots of beagle puppies to the public they told me they now just sell the
supplies to other hunter's .... she got out of selling the puppies since people
wanted pets and complained when their puppies grew up to be unhappy in their
homes and neighborhood yards and would dig out or climb out to go off to the
woods. Below is the fencing they used to contain the young beagle hound pups
they would "Start" ... this is the term used for starting them learning to hunt
After seeing which ones had the technique-(loudest
baye ,so he can be found eaisly, most desire to track and scent after prey-
rabbits that are raised to be let out in the fenced area to chase down..etc.)
they wanted the rest would go in the paper and be sold off to
unsuspecting pet homes...how do you keep one who wants to hunt already, happy in
the house?? Much less they learn to dig under or go over your fenced in yard to
head off to the nearest woods... oh there is a big busy rd. out there too, but
they still try to make it...over and over...
Here is how the Hunters must contain these pups
and adults so they can work with them..
This fencing has electric wire shock ,
and barbed wire
along the top to keep them in !! and there was Two rows in case the
pups managed to get out of the first fence the second would stop them from
heading to the fields and woods nearby.. wow ... They may be cheaper puppies to
start with , but over the 10 to 15 years you own your pet.... do you really
think its worth the difference ,,, having to work to keep a dog home who doesn't
want to ?? Ever wonder why there are so many hunting hounds in the area they
have beagle rescues for those who are turned in by owners who cant handle the
escaping any more and the constant drive to find animals outside their owners
yards, or those who make it out into the big world and dont make it back home,
before someone finds them, and takes them to be adopted into a new nightmare for
the next person.
Why not just start with one bred to be a
Homebody housepet variety beagle ?
Started in the tub our pups are easy to train when you have time ...they can be
taken outside at the same time as going on paper without confusing them,
you know that after meals , water , naptime, or playtime.. they will need to
either be put on their paper confined area, or taken to the grassy area you have
chosen for them.....pick one area of the yard to go to and take them there each
time at first ...
they can learn paper is when you are busy, and
outside is when you can take them for a walk..
Our Sunshine acres beagle puppies are family raised to be
indoor pets .
Starting with a puppy raised in a cage
like other breeders do it in the section above, is more difficult..
You must take it outside whenever it needs to go ! It hasnt used paper before

( we offer helpful hints on how to
housebreak the day you pick up your puppy )
RULED BY THEIR HEARTS NOT THEIR NOSE !
Even though your family has no plans to
show- the fact that the pups are out of show dogs back in their ancestry
means, your puppy won't display the instincts of a field trial beagle, hunting,
howling, the hound odors, and worst of all escaping your home and yard to go
track prey, rather they have been raised as family companions for many years
inside the home with no emphasis placed on tracking ability or instinct in the
breeding, and will be loyal loving lap dogs, not howling hunting dogs.

a Friend about our family-oriented beagles!
Family raised and
selectively bred companion pets for approved forever homes!
Successfully finding, adopting, and raising just the
right little puppy to become the perfect lifelong sidekick is everyone's goal
and it is therefore important to adopt a beagle who has been
specifically intended for a pet home lifestyle, so that everyone can
enjoy a lifetime of harmony. For 20 years Sunshine Acres Beagles have
been selectively bred for luxurious indoor pet home qualities, and are
hand-raised from birth to grow up in approved pet homes only. It is our family’s mission to
develop the ultimate Companion pet, for both indoor living and outdoor
adventures, as a unique sidekick for their happy families.

The beloved beagle breed is known for their well-rounded,
traits making an engaging , and therefore many families seek to add a
beagle to their household to lead a pet-only lifestyle. Beagles that
had been selectively bred for abilities in the hunting market are often
unhappy when added to a pet-only home, as they are being denied their
life’s passion for the sporting track, and are then given a bad rep for
following their sub sequentially notorious drive to run off and track.
Rather than breeding to magnify hunting instinct, as many beagle lines
are bred and started on, we have instead chosen to breed only homebody
lines who’s passion is to be right there with the family, focusing on
you, the human pack leader, and thus following whatever you choose to
do. This makes for a less distracted beagle, which is easier to train,
along with fewer worries about running away.
Our beagles would rather be right
there by your side, having fun around the yard, playing on the living
room floor, camping in with you in the mountains, or cozying up on the
couch! Love for the beagle breed has inspired us to selectively breed
their wonderful qualities specifically for appropriate pet homes,
keeping the quality puppies that our family has fallen in love with, and
reproducing them for our approved families to enjoy.
As a family with 20 years experience breeding family pets, Miss
C's kids Christi and Cody have grown up with beagle puppies to
snuggle and play with all their lives!

Family & your puppy's first home.
The luxurious coats of our uniquely bred
pet-line are well suited for indoor residence. The
sporting beagles' standard was set originally to have a courser
coat, intended to move the breed towards the purpose of the
hunt, to break off easily in the brambles when on the scent's
trail. Since our beagles are not intended for hunting purposes,
we have worked on improving the coats generation after
generation and have created a softer coat in our bloodline. We
also have developed many specially less shedding coats,
particularly in our rare color beagles, such as khakis,
chocolates, silvers and oranges, and sometimes even the
tricolors as well. Families with allergies have rejoiced in
being able to add a rare colored lapdog to their lives. We often
hear from happy Sunshine families on the softness of their
sunshine acres beagle’s coat, perfect for snuggle time, couch
breaks, and playtime on the floor!
beagle beauties enter forever households throughout America,
both to our east and to the west of our small family home in
here in North Carolina. Their dynamic colors undeniably
catch eyes wherever they go, and stop onlookers in their tracks.
Admiring their beauty, many of our customers who met a sunshine
acres beagle sought out more information on where they could get
their own sidekick, were told enthusiastically of our beagles
and website, and have therefore found us through word of mouth.
We have a wonderful network of sunshine acres beagle families
from across America who stay in touch for the years to come.
Our beagles catch attention
everywhere they go, and offer wonderful networking
opportunities. We love it when our happy families and eye
catching beagles spread the word about our uniquely developed
line! After seeing one of our khaki nano sized sunshine
acres beagles "Nina" in a coffee shop in San Francisco, Karen
Richardson (chairmen of Hi5 network)
and her husband Jon Rubenstein
(iPod daddy, & Palm CEO) were
smitten, got online and found our website, told us about
themselves to get pre-approved, and then adopted their very own
nano size khaki girl "Pixi” to love and easily travel with them
in the cabin between homes in California and Mexico.
bred for slightly varying sizes, with quality and health as
first priority, our babies fit into many lifestyles. For
many standard sizes 13” – 15” beagles match
wonderfully with their lifestyle, and for others the smaller
mini sizes, 12” and under work better for their
situation. Diverse lifestyles are abundant in these times,
and our beagles continue to go into uniquely matching
living the companion lives they were intended
to excell by.
Whatever the color,
size or gender may be, our babies continue to have well-rounded
characteristics. Sunshine Acres Beagles are the result of 20
years of development, selectively breeding purely for all the
traits that make them a wonderful addition to an indoor
companion pet & outdoor sidekick lifestyle.

we realize we need to expect our most desirable customers to rely on this

each random emailer with those new pictures & what's going on, wasting

daughter Christi devotes hours upon hours to the puppies as well as website
updates & pictures for everyone to see, and whenever computer time is
appropriate, usually focuses on these updates for everyone to see before
moving on to individual emails. We can more easily converse with those who
have taken advantage of the time we've put into compiling this website for
their benefit & appreciation.
We realize that our unique beagle pet website has grown quite extensive
through constant updates, and that we were one of the very first breeders to
have created a website showcasing what we have to offer in our family raised
beagle pets, sharing them with approved households across America.
We understand that a
first temptation upon finding our beautiful babies may be to skip the details,
and simply write asking questions such as "what puppies do you currently have
available?" or "I'm interested- Can you send more info?". However we hope that
everyone understand that these unsupported inquiries only delay the process.
If we receive emails that seem to have missed out on the efforts put into our
website topics, we may skip those during our precious computer time & allow
others who have already researched & are making that commitment towards
raising a Sunshine Acres Beagle into their very own Companion Pet to move
forward first, and meanwhile the random inquirer can take that time to return
to our website & begin learning more before making any decisions and
proceeding with the adoption process!

submitted your details for pre-approval but we havent been able to respond, it
may have been lost in the shuffle that week, please be understanding and
patiently forward your email again so that we can see your sincerity and help
you move forward!

If you're smitten with an available
baby, & currently ready for
a puppy, you can ask us about approving your household as our baby's
potential home. If approved you could choose to claim an Available puppy with
your deposit and hold them off the market until you come out soon to meet
with us and welcome home your new darling (Afternoons/evenings that week or a
weekend trip for the fam!) or have the baby fly home via PetSafe.
If you don't see
an Available puppy in the
color(s), size(s), gender or whatever really steals your heart, many of our
families ask to get themselves pre-approved for a puppy from us whenever
everything works out just right. Our Puppies are offered to pre-approved
matches first before becoming available to the general inquiriing public since
there may be 5 emails that day about a certain puppy, this makes it possible
for us to review all the components ahead of time that would make the best
match for that puppy. We know its mother and father's temperament and
personality over their years growing up, and love to see our babies
personalities develop to their full potential to compliment people's
lifestyles for a harmonious lifetime of mutual enjoyment!

thoroughly read over the
topics provided, such as pricing, differences in size, who is
actually available, and what we need to know in order to consider the
potential home as a match, get our attention first. Those who ask questions
that are already covered sometimes get ignored while more committed
families are answered in the free time in between caring for pups, and they
can take that time
to follow up and then show us their diligence so that we can see they
would make a responsible home for one of our learning babies.
