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 bloodline.

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 Pet! 

Young Couples, Singles, Empty Nesters, and Families from across America have become addicted to watching our beagles and babies, and tune in daily for their dose of cuteness, meanwhile expanding their knowledge about these special companion beagles!  To begin the search for your very own beagle puppy, begin reviewing our sections for helpful info, & look at all our Current Pups shown on the Current Litters page further below. Also see our Upcoming Litters page for near future possibilities.

Our Sunshine Process:
 Creating good matches for our Puppies & Families!

 We love each one of our babies, and finding the right homes to properly guide their development into wonderful pets is important to us.  Harmony is valuable for everyone. 

   By first learning about the families who come to us, and the unique homes that they are offering  for one of our babies, we can feel comfortable in moving forward and helping create balanced happy family matches for our beagles and customers.

   With the keys to success provided throughout our exclusive Guidance pages, the new puppy parents responsibly raise their very own learning puppy. By first establishing them as a part of the human pack order, and forming good indoor pet habits from the very start, they are able to reach their happy potential as the perfect match for their unique pet homes!  You can directly raise your new attentive Baby Sunshine Acres Beagle into your harmonious & responsible family member, for years of enjoyment with the perfect companion pet for you!  

Are you Smitten?

We see a variety of desires from our potential families since our bloodline has so many unique & beautiful characteristics to love. Because of this diversity, we can often consider new interests as an appropriate match for one of our Available Puppies. 

If you're ready for a puppy and are smitten with an available baby you can ask us about approving your household as our baby's potential home, and if approved you may be able to claim him or her with your deposit to hold your baby off the market until you can either 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 your baby fly home via the PetSafe program.   

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 so that they can have the choice to claim a matching baby whenver everything works out just right. Our Puppies are offered to pre-approved matches first before we can consider new inquiries as a current match- so holding your spot in he line of decisions is always a good idea!

  Learn all about our family & our beagles, and once you have decided you'd love to add one of our darlings to your household, you can then introduce yourself & household to us, and seek our help in finding & raising your very own companion pet, whether you're ready for a puppy as of now, will be soon, or are looking forward to sometime in your future.

 

Enjoy reviewing our  educational & delightful Beagle Website. When you feel your search is over & you've found our family to be the home you'd like to adopt your lifelong companion pet from, the sure way to hold your position in the line of inquiries from our new possible sunshine beagle families, is to join the waiting list for our help matching you up with the puppies you're looking to find, so you can be on your way towards raising your own Sunshine Acres Companion Pet.

Want to know More? Take advantage of years of experience and knowledge!

Our Website is here for the benefit of you
 and our babies success for the years to come!

  We've developed an in-depth website over the years, for families across America to reference & learn from, taking the right steps towards a successful addition to their family, while we fulltime care for our babies here at home and work to make appropriate matches happen with those who are ready for the commitment! 

   To be considered & approved for a Sunshine Acres Beagle puppy, we expect to see sincerity & commitment to successfully adding a puppy to your household. Demonstrate your patience and attention by first reading our informative website topics to learn about all of those important adoption details ahead of time, so we can successfully proceed in helping you find & raise the right beagle pet!

   We are a small family- a single Mom & her 2 kids caring for our beagles.  We are not a pet store, so please be understanding that our beagles & pups are our priority, not sales. We take our time to know who we are talking to before feeling comfortable in moving forward, and we do not have a "customer service" phone line like some other websites, where their employees who answer the phone are not even at the kennel location, and do not personally know a thing about the puppies they sell . Instead we have taken the initiative as a family to compile all of our years experience, giving you an extensive website to take your time finding out all about us before telling us about you and moving forward!

   We choose to devote our time to our beagles and family, meanwhile offering the joy we've found in our rare companion pets to those families who understand our mission, where we are coming from, and appreciate our time that is given to our beagles and the many responsibilities around here as we raise family oriented beagle puppies the right way! These preferred customers care to seek out all those important details they desire via this website that we have put together for that purpose, and exhibit their patience, attentiveness & perseverance- qualities needed to succesffuly adapt a new puppy into the household!

   We keep this page & current puppies updated, because we realize we need to expect our most desirable customers to rely on this current & detailed information, rather than expect us to individually update each random emailer with those new pictures & what's going on, wasting precious energy repeating various info about our beagles. Please take advantage of our years of descriptions, before contacting us to avoid asking questions we've already answered in much more extensive detail and imagery, for ultimately better understanding.

 Miss Chritstina's 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!            

Note: If you've 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 sincereity and help you move forward!
If you discover further info, or learn more about the details we like to have in order to consider you for approval, you are welcome to resend your email & include any of those extra details to help us know more about where our babies are going!

This informative website has been created & written by Miss Christina and Chirsti, and 20+ years of observations, experiences, and overall understanding have gone into creating this site. Expansive informational topics & adorable pictures have been piling up, and it is all here at your fingertips, here for you to pursue & access freely through www.sunshinebeaglepups.com/sunshineacresbeagles.htm  !

We hope everyone understands these are bred to be pampered pets & indoor family members only.

Approved Pet-Homes Only

 Hunting, showing, & Breeding our pets are Forbidden by the breeder and her kids who love 'um !
_________________________

Our Beagle pets, exclusive Bloodline:
Since 1990 we have developed & raised our Sunshine Acres Beagles for house pet friendly qualities. Ours are not the typical beagles designed for hunting abilities you find in the local papers. We have spent  years selectively choosing & keeping our breeding lines for homebodies that make excellent Loving Lap dogs, and have placed them only into pet homes.

These puppies are intended for Pet Homes Only, not for breeding, hunting, showing or resale. We provide a copy of the parent's/ancestor's AKC papers to show that our pet-puppies are of pure blood AKC Beagle origins. Litters are not individually registered to prevent Breeding of our Sunshine Acres Beagles, which is prohibited.
We reserve the right to place our pups only into homes we are comfortable with, and refuse to sell our babies to anyone planning to Hunt or breed our uniquely developed bloodline.
(DNA on file with the AKC)

If you currently have a beagle, we will ask for their spay/neuter receipt prior to selling any of our puppies to safeguard our many years of work developing our exclusive bloodlines of Pet only pups.
If you intend to adopt Two, we will only sell littermates, or pups of the same gender.
If they are going to be unrelated, they must be the same gender to avoid accidental breeding of the unique  house pet variety line Miss Christina has developed.

 In other words  this is the only place to get
 a Sunshine Beagle Puppy by Miss C. !

We invite you to explore and learn more about our small family, a mother and kids, our home, and our devotion to hand raising  companion beagle puppies for approved pet homes only. 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!


 

" " First I would like to say how impressed I am with your website.  I can feel the love and commitment your family has for your babies. Any baby that comes into the world amongst that much love is bound to be a wonderful companion. I am truly impressed! " "   " "I got your information from a friend of mine who lives in Charlotte.  She passed on the info shortly after we lost Pokey.  I am impressed with what I see on the website, and my friend tells me you have an amazing reputation in town." "

 

" After much research, reading of books and searching the net, we figured out that getting a dog was much more complicated than going to a shelter and getting the first little guy that tugged at our heartstrings. We discovered that the best way to find the perfect dog was to go to a reputable breeder, and after reading the description of puppy mills, I will never go back to PetSmart again! To be honest, I like that it requires more effort; it’s one of the reasons that I'm sure that we are ready for this. I don't want something that is quick, cheap, and easy, because in my experience it's these things that end up disappointing you in the end. It’s the things that require time, effort, and planning that provide the joy and satisfaction of owning a pet. Wow...do I sound as cliché as I feel right now? Well, bottom line we both love dogs, I'mallergic to cats; birds are too crazy and I'm kind of over the whole rodent thing, so we are extremely excited about adopting a puppy. 

I have to say, that I was extremely impressed with the level of detail, and the informative nature of your website. When I read your mission statement, I knew that I could look for five years and not find a more perfect breeder for the kind of dog that we want to have. We don't hunt, we have no intention of breeding or doing competitions or anything like that. Our desire is simply to make a small addition to our family of two."
"

 

"  My family and I have been looking at your web site almost daily for several months.  What a great website!  It is very informative and the beagle pictures make us smile instantly.  I probably shouldn't admit it, but I find myself rubbing their bellies and scratching their ears with the mouse - I can't help it.  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 the adorable pictures of your wonderful babies and mamas!
 
Now, let us introduce ourselves.

Sunshine Acres Beagles


Our family's devotion
to hand-raising
companion beagle puppies for approved indoor pet homes.

 

Raising indoor 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 the new mommy, comforting her and helping her along the way in our Whelping Room/ Nursery room which we had built 5 year ago as an addition to our new home on acreage woods.

 

 

As 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 comforting 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 of.

 

 That 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 after 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.

 

 

 As an approved pet home who has made that sincere commitment to becoming a sunshine acres family, you will have access to our years of accumulated advice, and follow our Guidance in taking over the wonderful responsibility of raising your new family-oriented sunshine beagle baby, and shaping them into your very own unique Companion Pet for everyone’s harmonious enjoyment for the years to come! 

 

We start them off right, and now its up to you to continue raising your new baby beagle.

 Review the Advice on our Guidance pages

so that everyone is prepared to start things off on the right foot from the beginning,
when it’s the easiest to establish lifelong habits in your forever pack.

Mother Approved House-pet variety Beagle Puppies  !!!  LOL !

We hand raise our baby beagles in our home, not in cages like many breeders...

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.

Dewclaws are  removed whenever possible, to make nail cutting easier. Already started going on paper and outside, and used to being around the family indoors vs cheap caged pups from local hunters. Easy to keep new puppy in a bath floor or laundry room etc. less shedding coats, less bathing required, no hound odors.  Less exercise required when from show champ, and indoor companion dogs than our competitors Hunting hound variety who want to get out and use their noses to track animals.. 

 

Our pups are  kid cuddled cuties from AKC show champion bloodline origins, not caged hunting stock. That results in a  Big difference in desire to stay home with the family. The majority of our customers have had a beagle growing up or had one in recent years and most who have had the hunting variety don't want to repeat that mistake and recognize the difference.

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!

 

(All our Adult Dogs we own, and have purchased for selective breeding have always been  pure bred AKC Registered Beagles over the past 16 years, in the development of our Sunshine Acres Beagle  Indoor raised family Pet bloodline. )

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 papers 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!

 

 

 Other beagle 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 it !!

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 out..

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 home !

Pampered pets.

 

 

 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,
 and worse, not content to stay in your yard.
 they become a constant problem with escapes
 from their owners yard, fenced or not.!!

Our keeper puppy Grace!
isn't she what you'd rather have?

 The root of our bloodline begins up in the North West Show Champion and Companion Dog Titled CDX winners. not bred for these abilities.

 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 hunt!! ha!

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 rabbits.

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 ...

-vs -

Ours going on its own on paper at 4 am. in your bathtub for the first few weeks, till old enough to hold it all night ,

and then moving into a crate , or bed with You !

 ( 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.

Chocolate Mini Beagle Charlie
"He has grown into SUCH a handsome boy.  People comment all the time on how good looking he is.  And he just has the best personality...such a lover.  A friend came over who was having a rough time and Charlie seemed to sense in and just gave him nothing but love and snuggles - didn't leave his lap.  Puppy therapy is such a real thing.  Charlie saves on heating bills by keeping my bed warm in the winter ;) and I have reached a new level of hatred for Mondays when I have to go to the office and leave him after a fabulous weekend of fetch and snuggles.  I think of you all so often and cannot begin to express how thankful I am for all you do to raise such incredible dogs.  Charlie has improved my life in countless ways.

"Hey guys!!
We are sending hugs and licks to you from Mexico.  I am way overdue to send you recent photos of Pixi. She is doing great -- and cute as ever.
I am copying our good friend Vanessa on this email.  She and her husband live in LA and also are next door to us here in Punta Mita Mexico.  She is a huge dog person, and like me, no longer has her 2 beloved labradors.  She met Pixi last night and LOVED HER.
So she may be in the market for a nano beagle cutie some day!! (i gave her your website link so she could explore) Certainly any pup adopted by the Helfet's would have an equally "diva lifestyle" to our little girl!!

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.

 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!

     These 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.

 Selectively 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 forever homes, 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. They are intended for approved pet homes only, and are not for hunting, breeding, showing or resale.

 It is our family's mission to continue developing our exclusive line of companion pet beagles and to see that each of our babies join appropriate households to learn from and enjoy for many happy & harmonious years to come.

Potential homes can learn all about us and our family-oriented beagles before seeking our help, by reviewing our years of accumulated information, pictures, success stories, and overall experience here, while we work to raise companion pets.

As a devoted family, we focus our time on caring for our puppies and beagles first and foremost.  Hand-raised from birth, our puppies are our priority, giving them the attention, daily care, and guidance intrigal to becoming little family members.  We start them off right, as our goal is for a successful addition to their new households as their approved forever families take over in raising them into their perfect companion pets.

As the puppies join their new packs, they are attentive to their human caregivers, and look to their pack leaders for all of their guidance, making that first week home a valuable time to establish lifelong habits, and consistently lead them in the right direction towards being the perfect companion pet in their unique home for the harmonious years to come. We also help our new families with this goal by providing our advice from years of experience upon their making that commitment, to insure that they follow our new puppy guidance, and properly raise their new sunshine acres beagle puppy to enjoy for the years to come. We truly care about seeing lifelong happy family matches, and hearing from our babies and happy families as they adapt and grow up in their forever homes, which is why we have put so much into developing our unique adoption process to help families find, adopt, and raise up just the right puppy for them.

 " Snicket is almost 7 months old now and she is doing so well! She has learned a few tricks like sit, laydown, roll over, and high five! She learned them all in just a few minutes too, shes a very smart little girl. The last time I took her in for a vet visit the vet asked where I got her and said that you all make really great pets! She is as healthy as a horse too! I have never had a puppy quite like her. She is such a cuddler and always wants to be close to me (she is currently snoozing under my knees while I write this!) and we love to take naps together! But she loves to play too and is always ready to go play with her friends at the dog park, but of course, she has to make the rounds with all the people before she says hello to the other dogs. She is so friendly Im glad I wasnt in the market for a watchdog (although she does like to bark at the dogs on tv)!!

Everyone who meets her comments to me about how beautiful she is and how luxurious her coat is. When I tell people she is nearly full grown at 15 pounds I always get oohs and ahhs at her perfect little size :) She is happy, healthy, and such a lover! She just loves to give kisses and loves to be held. I have never seen another dog that relishes being held the way she does!

Thanks so much for my perfect little pet!

Sunshine Acres Beagle Puppies
Adoption Process!

 

 

Before contacting us about moving forward, take your time to learn about our family and our beagles by exploring our website links above. Over the years our experience has been collecting throughout our pages, gathered here for our preferred adoptive families across America to enjoy, learn from, & appreciate, in order to make good decisions and take the right steps towards a successful addition to their family.    We love each one of our babies, and finding the right homes to properly guide their development into wonderful pets is important to us.  Harmony is valuable for everyone.

Our family's goal is to match our hand raised beagle babies to sincere homes who understand where our family is coming from, appreciate our time and mission in hand raising family oriented beagles to enter approved pet homes only, and are committed to raising their very own sunshine acres companion beagle!

  We are a small family: a singleMom & her 2 kids, caring for our beagles full time, so please be patient and understanding! 
We are not a pet store, so please be understanding that our beagles & pups are our priority, not sales.
We take our time to know who we are talking to before feeling comfortable in moving forward, and we do not have a "customer service" line, where an employee's time-on-the-job would simply be focused on "selling puppies" or trying to "make a sale". Instead of that job description, we have taken the initiative to compile all of our 20 years experience, giving you an extensive website to visually & comfortably peruse to find out all about us & our mission, before telling us about yourself and moving forward! Please take advantage of our years of accumulated information, before contacting us so we can devote our attention to our babies and pre-approved expectant parents, and you can avoid asking questions that we've already answered in much greater detail and imagery, here on the website, for our zillions of followers across the nation to benefit from together.

Demonstrate your devotion to a successful addition by taking the time to read all the information we have already put together for everyone's benefit, so that you can make an informed decision in contacting us about adopting one of our babies into your household, and with you sincere details we can feel more comfortable in approving your household and beginning the process towards helping you successfully find & raise the right beagle pet for you!

Watch our Current Litters of beagle puppies, as they are born, grow up here in our home, and join their very own approved forever homes! Feel free to View our Expectant Mommies as we await their Upcoming litters! Continue to learn more about us & our family raised Sunshine Acres Beagle Puppies via informative Topics provided on this extensive webpage for you! When you are ready to move forward, tell us about yourself and your desires so that can work together to help you find & raise just the right little companion pet beagle for you!

   We keep this page & current puppies updated, because we realize we need to expect our most desirable customers to rely on this current & detailed information, rather than expect us to individually update each random emailer with those new pictures & what's going on, wasting precious energy repeating various info about our beagles. Please take advantage of our years of descriptions, before contacting us to avoid asking questions we've already answered in much more extensive detail and imagery, for ultimately better understanding.

 Miss Chritstina's 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!            

Note: If you've 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 discover further info, or learn more about the details we like to have in order to consider you for approval, you are welcome to resend your email & include any of those extra details to help us know more about where our babies are going!

This informative website has been created & written by Miss Christina and Christi, and 20 years of observations, experiences, and overall understanding have gone into creating this site. Expansive informational topics & adorable pictures have been piling up, and it is all here at your fingertips, here for you to pursue & access freely through the internet .

 

 

 

Young Couples, Singles, Empty Nesters, and Families from across America have become addicted to watching our beagles and babies, and tune in daily for their dose of cuteness, meanwhile expanding their knowledge about these special companion beagles!

Our bloodline has so many unique & beautiful characteristics to love, that we see a variety of desires from our potential families. Because of this diversity, we can often consider new interests as an appropriate match for one of our Available Puppies

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!

 

To begin the search for your very own beagle puppy, start reviewing our sections, & look at all our Current Pups. Also see our Upcoming Litters, and explore the rest of our website to fully understand where we are coming from and the difference in adopting a family raised puppy.

  We choose to devote our time to our beagles and family, meanwhile offering the joy we've found in our rare companion pets to those families who understand our mission, where we are coming from, and appreciate our time that is given to our beagles and the many responsibilities around here as we raise family oriented beagle puppies the right way! These preferred customers care to seek out all those important details they desire via this website that we have put together for that purpose, and exhibit their patience, attentiveness & perseverance- qualities needed to successfully adapt a new puppy into the household!

 To be considered for one of our Sunshine Acres Beagle puppies, we expect to see sincerity & commitment to adding a sunshine acres beagles puppy to your home.  Explore & learn about our family, our beagles, and our mission. Once you've gotten a feel for who we are, agree with our mission of hand raising family oriented beagles to place into approved pet homes only, & are ready to proceed towards adding one of our babies to raise as your own when the time is right, the next step is to introduce yourself to us by submitting an email to Miss Christina with your household details & desires so we can consider you as a good pet-home for one of our babies.

  Learn all about us & our family raised beagles, and once you have decided you'd love to add one of our darlings to your household, you can then introduce yourself to our family,  and seek our help in finding & raising your very own companion pet, whether you're ready for a puppy as of now, will be soon, or are planning ahead for sometime in your future.

 

When Ready to move forward with the Sunshine Adoption process,

Contact our family !

 

Note: people who display that they have 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.
