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. !

  • Often folks tell us how exciting it is to watch the claims by wonderful homes, and we have folks who have watched our updates for years before & years after their own adoption of a sunshine beagle!
       
  • After reviewing our informative website and watching our updates here and further bewlo in our
    announcements section, let us know about yourself and if ready, tell us if you have favorite available puppies, so that we can consider your current interest as a potential match and help make appropriate matches happen for each of our babies and families!   
    Please be patient and understanding of our adoption process if we do have pre-approved homes ahead in line we must hear from first; if there are folks already in line, we work through the waiting list to see what those in line for specific preferences want to do (claim a match or pass and continue waiting for a future match).
  • Christi and Candace from Las Vegas, she has 2 of our sunshine beagles and flew Christi out to deliver their second!You can also ask to become pre-approved to hold your spot in the claiming process, so that we already know you and can contact you about matching pups before newer interests !

    We are a family, and devote endless hours to raising our companion beagles here at home.
    We reserve the right to work with those families we feel most comfortable with- we truly care about our babies, whom we have invested so much time and love into since birth, and therefore we want to know that the homes who seek to adopt are sincere about providing a responsible home and will be a wonderful connection with our family for the years to come.
  • Take your time to learn about our family and our beagles, and when you are ready to move forward in adopting your baby beagle from us, please let us know about yourself too, your household and your interests so we can get to know you as well!  Review our page detailing what we like to hear about before moving forward.
      
  • In order to be approved for adoption, we must learn about your household through your e-mailed details, and know that you are willing to be patient with the process of adoption.  This shows us you're serious, and will be committed to the responsibility of your new lifelong companion that our family has raised from birth for you to take over raising into just the right household companion for you!
  • We do keep a pre-approved waiting list for future timeframes:
        If planning months or a year ahead, ask about pre-approval.
    Since we are caring for our puppies and usually working with our currently adopting, pre-approved homes, or recent adoptions, Please allow a week or so for an approval response. If we missed your email, please continue by kindly resending your interest so that we can see your details and know you are still interested in adopting one of our hand raised babies when the time is right.)


  •    
    The adoption process requires patience from everyone involved, and consideration of
    the fact that we are a real, living family raising our babies.
     In adopting one of our babies, we value compassion.
    The process of adoption is not like putting in an order- we must feel comfortable with you and approve your home, seeing that you understand how important working individually with each family is to us; adoption is a 10-15 year commitment, and we stay in contact with our forever homes.

    Miss Christina and return customer Yolanda of Rouse Brother Organic Farms in Rosehill NC! Yolanda came to adopt her second sunshine beagle!
    Forever Friendships are often made with our wonderful extended families…

    Yolanda adopted retiring Sally from us , within days she had a fall on an icy outdoor step at her Organic family farm ... Sally kept her awake and warm propping her up till someone arrived to take her back inside. She stayed in touch and before long adopted a pup we had planned to keep to breed ourselves. We allowed her to take our gal and once old enough she came home to have a litter for us and Yolanda’s daughters got to keep a puppy, and she later came back to have a litter for us too!

     
    We love the friendships and relationships the kids and I get to make through our work and value those who appreciate what we do here at Sunshine Acres !

    Christi updates this section on a regular basis as matches are found so everyone can note their favorites, email to let us know their interests so that we can get an idea of who everyone is drawn to, and watch for updates as we see to wonderful matches for each of our puppies and forever pet homes, and work individually with each home when their time comes! ( Review our adoption process, and Send your family info to become pre-approved to claim one of your own!) If your family is ready to adopt and has favorite(s), please note your availability for homecoming timeframes so that we can consider your interest during the matching process.

    *New Puppy tip: Remember that your new puppy will start out in a confined area as they slowly learn about your home through your lead. Their “safe-base” can be the bathtub while still small, kitchen or laundry room floor with a child-gate, or, we especially recommend the easy to set up Pet Playpen from Petsmart, as seen on our suggested items page , with paper on one side and bedding on the other, for whenever you are not right there supervising as they learn about and adapt to their new household there with you.

    Boundaries are good for puppies; so that as an intelligent pupil they can respect your leadership, learn and gradually earn their household privileges. Through this process they will be able to be trusted and enjoy more freedoms when they grow up responsibly in your home!

    Get ready for Puppy Guidance by asking for our Guidance pages link from years of experience- available to approved pet homes wanting to
     successfully add one of our companion beagles to their life!

    After learning about us and the adoption process, to take the next step, Tell us about your household so that our family can feel comfortable working with you and approving you for the adoption of one of our puppies. 
    Please keep in mind that sometimes things can happen in life- emails go to spam, newborns are born requiring our sleepless nights and so on, and if we miss your email seeking approval to adopt a baby from our family when the time comes, please don't take it personally.
    We do want to learn about you and sometimes the process moves along more quickly depending on what’s going in life and who we are currently caring for here at home- be that newborns, or meeting with & working with already approved families adopting their lifelong companions!
    We love those hopeful adoptees who have been patient throughout the past, during times when we missed getting back to them at first about approval.
     They persisted in connecting with us with a consistent kindness and good attitude that we value in adoptive homes, and when we saw their email and all the details they shared, we were able to feel very comfortable with them as a family, and were happy to answer with the good news of approval!

    and happy families sending pictures and updates.

    We also spend the majority of our day with the puppies, especially when newborns have arrived,

    We try to get back to everyone as soon as we can after we see their email and consider their details
    But if a few days go by, emails can get pushed back to the next page. If you didn't receive a reply that week or so, please kindly resend/fwd your email with all your details so that we can learn about your home.  Sometimes we even have a draft waiting, that we have written together after discussing details with each other  and for whatever reason we were interrupted or it did not go through, and when the family reached out again we were able to see that, and note their good attitude and happiness to work together towards seeing to a successful addition of their very own sunshine acres companion beagle to their life,
    to raise as their own.
    Knowing that you are excited to work together assures us that in the future you will continue to review and welcome our advice towards responsibly raising a household pet, who has had a great start here and will continue to learn from you how to fit in with your household and pack just right.

    (Keep scrolling down, after you have read  the info below, there are more pictures of the available puppies growing up here at home!)

    Why is there a pre-approved waiting list for future timeframes and preferences ? Everyone's preferences are unique, from color, size, or gender, to becoming ready after future timeframe(s). Therefore our pre-approved waiting list helps us focus on everyone's goals for the future, as we learn more about each family beforehand, and help them find their matches during a time that works for them! We ask that if joining the waitinglist, folks  agree they are willing to be patient until mother nature provides and they can claim a puppy during a timeframe that works. If it's not a good time, folks can always pass and continue waiting until everything works out.

    How do puppies become available?
    Since everyone has different preferences and situations going on in their lives, the waiting list during certain timeframes, or for colors, sizes, and genders becomes satisfied. Then new folks can consider those puppies as matches if they are ready and seek adoption approval, otherwise, they may choose to join our waiting list, and at their individual turn(s) during a timeframe that works for them, we offer our pre-approved waiting list families the opportunity to claim or pass on matching puppies until they decide to adopt just the one that steals their heart! Joining the waiting list is done through a nonrefundable $100 deposit, that represents an agreement/commitment on both parties' parts to work together.

    How do you find forever homes?
    We are committed to our puppies' care first and foremost, devoting our lives to properly raising our babies for pet-homes. Therefore it is important to us to match them up with the right families to continue learning from and forever homes to thrive in. Our website has proven crucial to finding sincere families who have taken their time to read everything and get to know our family, and by the same token, we want to learn all we can about the homes that come to us!

    Ash and ComputerYour Emails to Miss C & Christi help us approve good forever homes for our babies!
    Miss Christina & daughter Christi take time out of our responsibilities to individually review emails from potential homes together, so that we can first learn about adoptees, and if comfortable with developing a relationship, compose an email during a good time to approve patient and sincere households who appreciate all that we're doing here and likewise provide their details for us to see. We want to know that the families who comes to us seeking adoption are indeed committed to the decision, and that they have taken their time to review all the helpful information we have already provided here online from our years of experience, so that everyone involved has a successful experience with the process of adding a new addition to the family. Send us emails so that we can see your details & sincere interest in moving forward with adopting a baby from our family for your family!

    Since our website is viewable by the general public, emails work best for us- this not only protects our family from unknown callers/visitors, can you imagine getting phone calls day and night from thousands of viewers across the world... it allows us to take a moment of peace between responsibilities here at home to sit down and review/compose e-mails when the time is right. This is the only way we can truly devote our attention to our babies first and foremost, without interruption, and then to interests without feeling rushed, being able to get up if needed and return to finish an email.

    Having all the details easily accessible together in an email for reference also really helps as we consider what's best for everyone. Once we've gotten a chance to see and discuss good potential homes with each other, we can feel comfortable with letting expectant pet-homes move forward in adopting of one of our babies, and take time when available to compose a letter back approving their home to join our extended sunshine family!

    When we have spare time and are able to sit down at the computer for a coffee break, we do of course like to first update our website if possible, so that everyone can get an update at the same time, then move on to individual conversations. We often work offline to organize memory stick pictures into folders, thumbnail new pictures and make updates, then get online to publish web updates for all our puppy fans across the nation to watch and follow along in the process! We devote our days to hand-raising each of our puppies & caring for everyone, share all the cuteness via our website, and then work together to see they are matched up with the right forever homes !

    Are you ready to start raising your new puppy? Once you've learned about our family's mission in raising companion beagles for pet homes only, and are in agreement with our intention for our babies being solely companion pets, you can begin the adoption process by letting our family know about your situation;

     Share details on your household, lifestyle/ experience/ routines & tell us about any family members AKA interactive Pack Members our baby would grow up with! To see more about what we like to know about interested homes, click here.

    You've learned about us, Now We want to know about you, your household, and how one of our beagles would fit in!

    Let us know what timeframes you would be ready for new puppy Homecoming!
    If you're ready now & available to come out, in a few weeks to a month, or months down the road..
    Also, please let us know you are willing to be patient until an appropriate match has been found
    . You are welcome to let us know you have favorites you'd like to be considered for though!

    Also, if you are considering available puppies,  Let us know what afternoons/evenings would be good puppy homecoming days, then we can consider you as a match for one of our currently Available Puppies who are ready to get started with their forever home!

    We like to set appointments to meet with folks anytime after 1pm here at home, usually Saturdays and Sundays are good but sometimes other days work out just as good!   Our mornings are busy around here taking care of all our responsibilities, so afternoon or evening appointments work best so that we can take care of things and then devote our time and attention to meeting with folks here in our home!

     Please remember that this is our home when visiting, not a storefront. You are invited over only after we have learned about your home and family- we don't simply allow strangers to come to our family home. If you are invited, that means we feel comfortable with you. This is also why our home address is not posted on the website, where thousands of viewers watch our updates and could show up at random times uninvited.
     Also if planning to come to our home, please see our visiting page.

    If you are planning to have your puppy fly home (United Petsafe or Delta PetFirst)- then often Fridays work best as a day for a trip to the airport, but other weekdays could work as well, and again, afternoons are better since we have lots to do in the morning!
    Usually saturdays are not good for Airport days, since our attention is on folks coming  here. Review our
    shipping page here.

     If you are indeed ready to raise a puppy and everything works out beautifully, we like to approve homes one by one, and can help you claim one of your matching favorites as your own, to hold them off the market with your deposit until your appointment to welcome home your new sunshine acres beagle puppy!

    After taking the time to read our site and learn about us, If you are ready to move forward towards adding your very own sunshine acres beagle puppy to your home, send our family an email  to tell us about yourself and how one of our babies would fit in there with you! 

     

    Please remember, patience and  persistence is a must when it comes to adoption, and key traits we like to see in those families seeking our approval to adopt from our family.

    What we do is special; it is not a technical service nor product-based business with telemarketers on call. Pease consider the fact that your emails are going to our family, specifically to Miss Christina and her daughter Christi. We will try our best to help you, as long as you understand that adopting a puppy is more similar to a casting call than an online store front. There are only so many roles to fill at one time, just as there are only so many available puppies, and we are selective- that is the beauty of what we do in seeing to loving matches whom we will enjoy hearing from for the years to follow.   We do also try to pre-approve great homes for future matches,  therefore patience is appreciated, and kind persistence if we weren't able to get back to you (i.e. missed your email amongst a flood that day, it went to spam, a reply did not successfully go through etc.). The approval process is much like a patience test- there are those who pass, and those who show their true colors, and we understand that for some, timing is a priority. We help if we can in these cases, but match-making is our proirity, not selling.

    Email helps keep up with everyone's details and our prefferred method of conversation. While taking care of our beagles first and foremost, can you imagine trying to take notes on a phone call from the dozens of web-viewers whom we don't know, calling our home to ask the same questions? Our website is here so that you don't have to wonder- you can find out by reading and doing your research before moving forward. If our phone number were posted for the dozens of lookers- we wouldn't be able to get anything done here, focus on our family raised beagle puppies and would be constantly interrupted, so emails give us that ability to focus our attention as needed, be selective, and focus on reviewing your details together, as mother and daughter, while we take a coffee break and discuss matches with each other.

    This is a life-long commitment, the beginning of the process takes dedication for a positive outcome-  the process of adopting, adjusting your puppy to your routines, having the consistency and knowing that being strong & a role model now will yield harmony later, as you successfully add a new addition to your life, to raise and enjoy for the many committed years to come.

    Puppy Health Care- Shots and Dewormings are kept up to date!
     

    We keep all our puppies current on their shots and deworming's, and will send home their health folder with their new family so that when they go in for their booster (if needed) the vet can see exactly what they've had.  After the puppy booster shots in the series of 4 are completed, your pup will just need their rabies shot done in your name when old enough and a yearly booster shot when they turn 1yr old.

    Since worms are a common occurrence that can be picked up / sniffed up very easily by pets, new puppy owners must be responsible for continuing the de-worming routine. This is a routine done every 2 weeks for puppies and is easy for new puppy parents to do until the vet puts them on a once a month pill. Simply pick up your puppy's own bottle of dewormer from Petsmart - good brands are Evict DS, Nemex II, Strongid or Safe-guard 4. You can order Safe-guard Canine Dewormer from petsmart icon  (which saves over retail pricing in the store- please use our links on the ahead suggested items page when online shopping so we get credit! ) and give your puppy their routine oral dose yourself with a syringe to ensure anything new that is picked up & matured is passed from their system. They like the taste, and this helps you keep from needing that done at the vet's office, saving considerably by doing it for your puppy yourself.

     If you see what looks like spaghetti in their stools, don't worry- that means your dewormer worked and that's how they are passed!

    We, Miss Christina and kids Christi & Cody devote our attention to properly raising our little family members for indoor companionship and match them up with the right forever pet-homes one by one!

     We like to review emails together when time is available and pre-approve sincere interests who have done their research, appreciate the time we spend caring for the babies & our efforts to provide and update all the helpful information found in our website, and are patiently committed to successfully adding one of our babies to their home as a lifelong companion beagle.

    Emailing helps us keep up with the details and allows us the ability to focus our attention on our babies at all times without interruption. We can get on emails when it is a good time, and when needed can easily get up to take care of things and return to emails later as appropriate.  When we are able to find a stopping point in between caring for all of our beagle babies we sit down to consider the details and compose an email back to our many excited families. Please be understanding that  this month we had the largest volume of viewers  ever. we try our best to read and respond to each and  all but it takes lots of time on our parts so we look for loving understanding families to work with .

     We are a small family, not a pet store, and the care of our babies is our first and foremost priority, not sales, so please be patient and understanding of our values. Those sincere homes who understand this and wouldn't want it any other way are the families that we want to join our sunshine acres family !

     Getting Ready to Raise a new Puppy? Consider claiming one of our

    Younger Puppies  Ready SOON!

     

     

     

    Each of these growing litters of puppies will be available to come home in the near future! If you will be ready for a puppy in the next couple weeks, consider our current Younger Litters that are still maturing and will be ready soon

    Depending on that litter we will plan homecomings for after their mommy weans them- spending less and less time in with them (as their teeth grow in and they begin eating dry food). They begin getting over seeing her, and instead focus on people and their littermates. We like to have our babies already matched up so that once ready they can go right into their forever home and begin learning how to fit in with their human pack for the years to come.

     

     Ask us for pre-approval to be included in the claiming process and start reviewing puppy tips to be all set for a successful addition!  To hold your spot in the claiming process, ask us about  holding your spot in our pre-approved waiting list with your $100 deposit, so that you get offered the chance to claim puppies at your turn with that deposit, before they become available to the public! The $100 deposit  is included in the purchase price, and is non-refundable, as it represents a commitment to working together. We reserve the right to not accept a deposit/ approve homes if we do not feel everyone is in agreement as a potential forever home or we don't feel comfortable with a continued relationship over the years. We like to make matches with people we'd enjoy staying in touch with, as our baby grows and matures in their responsible home. This is one of the reasons we don't have information for sending a deposit available on the website- we can send this after learning about you & approving you for adoption once we all feel comfortable. Some websites offer a "click to pay" option, or a customer service rep possibly in another state who doesn't have any personal experience with that individual puppy. We are a small family and handle everything ourselves, it can be slower, because we dedicate ourselves to our babies first and foremost, and we apologize, that's why we provide so much extensive information that you can look up the answers to most questions typically asked, such as price for the various size and color combinations, and keeping an eye on the puppies currently available- our website is updated with announcements first for everyone, before moving on to individual emails. We know that the serious people are patient and persistent, who read through the website and kindly check in, and those are the folks we feel most comfortable working with and forming a lasting relationship with as the forever family for a Sunshine Acres Beagle baby!

    We are currently making matches and approving homes for adoption one by one so that once these babies are ready to begin bonding they can go ahead and enter their forever homes to start forming lifelong routines!

    After you've taken your time to learn about our family and our mission in developing companion pet beagle lines for pet-homes only, and appreciate our devotion to hand-raising little house pets & sidekicks, you can begin the process by please sharing details about your lifestyle and your goals.

    We provide in-depth details on our family, so please by the same token let us know about yours in order for us to feel comfortable moving forward with allowing your household to adopt one of our babies. Adoption is a life-long commitment, and we want to know that you are committed to your adoption before moving forward and spending time helping you individually find your preferences and add a new addition to your life for the years to come.

    Let us know ...

    • About yourself, and any family members that will influence your puppy & household routines. We want to know everyone is committed to helping your puppy successfully adapt to your pack and learn your household boundaries in order to more fully enjoy responsible years to come.

    • About your home -
      Yard, is it fenced/invisible fences or would you plan to walk
      Sleeping arrangements- confined area plans for safe-places when housebreaking, ect.

    • Your preferences/ favorites-
      (Please let us know about colors sizes and genders you are open to loving in your new family member! You can even put your favorites' name in your subject line if you'd be ready for a favorite)

    • Dates for possible Homecoming/ timeframes you have in mind or timeframes you are open to.

    If one of these babies has caught your eye, and you are almost ready, let us know you have matching favorites, and then we can consider your sincere interest as we match our babies to their forever homes!

    If you are still getting things together and would like to plan ahead,
    watch for announcements on Newborns for better possible matches.
    Also check out our upcoming litters page to get an idea of what we're expecting at this point.

    Once you've joined our waiting list or claim your new baby, you can start reviewing our guidance pages to be all set for Homecoming Day!

    Why is Puppy Guidance so important?

        As your puppy enters their new home, they will begin forming their lifelong habits in their new household by seeking out boundaries and learning from pack leaders- aka humans (and existing pets).  This first week home is the best time to establish life lessons & human pack order so that they can understand you will always be their strong, wise pack leader, who will always make the best decisions in the long run and do what is best for the pack. Your attentive beagle puppy will observe your interactions, and directly learn from each of your responses- learning how you view each behavior and whether its acceptable within your pack.
     

       From Day 1: Your Indoor Beagle is learning!  Instructing, Training and Nurturing the right state of mind from the very start is the most logical & easiest time to make lifelong impressions, so that can begin adapting and developing their responsible Lifestyle with your human pack for the wonderful years to come! By establishing yourself as a strong, dependable pack leader, they will respect your wisdom over them, and therefore follow your guidance in developing an adaptation to your unique Household & pack, to fit in and thrive in for the years to come.

    The first step towards being a responsible pet parent & leader is to Understand your puppy's learning process, and What To Do (and what NOT to do) in order to successfully develop healthy habits and raise your lifelong companion pet. You can be prepared to be a good consistent leader by reading our advice from our years of experience, available to committed sunshine acres families on our exclusive Guidance pages.

    christi and newborn beagle puppy We announce our puppies' arrival, and when everything is stable after those first few days and sleepless nights we'll find a good time to start taking and posting our newborns' pictures so that everyone following along can see! Soon after, we will begin announcing turns to start the claiming process, and emailing those whose turn it is to let them know the good news on their potential matches! At that point, they can choose to claim or pass on their choices, and we will work through our waiting list.

    • We'll make announcements on turns for those pre-approved in line, and contact our waiting list families who are ready for this timeframe, and open to those puppies' colors sizes and genders. One by one our pre-approved sunshine acres beagle parents can take their turn and choose to claim their lifelong family members (or pass if they'd like to continue waiting for color/size/gender/timeframe matches) Folks in line are always welcome to update their preferences, especially if they see a new face they'd love to be considered for! We just want to see lifelong happy matches for our puppies and families, and love seeing everything work out just right!

    • Once claimed, we'll announce the decision on the website, and our families continue to watch our updates as the babies grow up here. In the meanwhile, the forever home prepares and reviews our guidance pages to be consistent in successfully raising their puppy from day one. Their mom will begin weaning them, spending less and less time in with them now that they have teeth, and the puppies will start playing with their toys, and looking to humans for all their needs. Folks often like to send along a care package, such as bed, toys, treats for mom while she nursing them etc. for their little family member to enjoy and benefit from here with his or her littermates ,and take home something familiar!   We'll set appointments for homecoming so that when they're ready, the puppies can join their forever homes to begin bonding and learning just how to fit in for the years to come!

    •  

      Once you've taken your time to learn about our family and agree with our mission in developing companion beagle lines for pet homes only, you can take the next step in the process by telling us about your potential home for one of our babies, so that we too can learn about you, and move forward in forming a lasting relationship with your forever home.

    Ask us  about pre-approval for adoption & hold your spot in the claiming process!

    We like to know how one of our babies would fit in there with you because seeing a successful addition is our goal. We have taken the initiative in sharing years worth of photos and information about our family and our passion for raising companions via our ever growing website, and by the same token we want to learn about the potential homes that come to us.

    Whether you're ready now, or plan to be in the future, getting yourself pre-approved on the waiting list helps the process go smoothly, so that we can better focus on your details and desires, and help make that wonderful match happen for the happy years to come!

    As a pre-approved sunshine expectant parent, you may hold your spot on our Waiting List so that we can offer you your own turn(s) to choose to claim your very own puppy during a good timeframe for you, so that everything works out just right for everyone involved. When we know everything beforehand, we can better understand your situation and help you find appropriate matches to choose from when the time is right. If planning ahead, by the time you are ready, you will have held your spot in line ahead of others who come to us after you, so that you can be one of the first in line for that timeframe. If you are ready, you can jump on the waiting list to hold your spot, as we work together to help you claim your new beagle puppy! A  nonrefundable $100 deposit represents a commitment and agreement to the process of adding a sunshine acres beagle puppy to your life. We only accept deposits from serious inquiries who know they want to get a sunshine beagle and will wait patiently for the right match, and only after we all feel comfortable.

    You are  welcome to be as specific or as open as you wish when picking out your preferences on colors , sizes, genders and potential timeframes, depending on what really matters to you. Of course, the more options you are open to loving in your new family memeber, the more choices we would have to offer you sooner at your turn for different color/size/gender combos. If you're very specific on those preferences, you may have to wait for that match to be born, which is fine. Patience is a must- flexibility helps :) and its what we look for in good adoptive families for our babies, when choosing who gets to claim one of our loved ones.
    See more pictures and learn more about the different colors sizes and genders you may love in your new family member
    here. If your preferences change or expand over time, you are always welcome to send us an update so that we can offer you matching babies to choose from and you can claim just the one that steals your heart!

    We are considering matches for each of our babies as we piece the puzzle together! Upon approval, you could be next for a darling in matching colors/sizes and gender- of course the more characteristics you are open to, the more babies we can offer you at your turn for each.  If you currently have favorites, feel free to let us know. We enjoy matching our babies up ahead of time so that everyone can begin making plans and discussing puppy homecoming dates. Your family can begin preparing for a responsible addition to your home, and once your puppy is ready to begin bonding, everyone can be all set for the new puppy to start learning how to best fit in their forever home!

    If you are not ready for a puppy, take some time to consider your options. We do have Younger Litters, and well as Upcoming Litters that would allow you more time to prepare. Our Upcoming page shows our expectant mommies and their past puppies for an idea of what babies could arrive in the near future!  If you don't feel you'd would be able to train a young puppy (going through the nibbling/biting phase and establishing yourself as leader) we do also have Adult Beagles for adoption (retiring, relocating) who have already established personalities, and often we may have Rescue Beagles looking for the right suit. Like with any new dog, you would simply need to ensure your beagle is taken outside regularly during their first week in the new home in order to establish a routine there in your home as a pack. 

     

    We like to pre-approve families one by one, You are welcome to hold your spot in the claiming process for whatever timeframe and preferences you'd like, or you can ask about adopting an available baby now!
    If you are planning ahead for your future you are always welcome to submit your details to Miss C and Christi so that when we have a moment we can sit down to review your details ahead of time and pre-approve you for our Waiting List, where you can hold your spot in the claiming process to be offered the choice of adopting matches! You are always welcome to pass on your turn at that time, and may continue holding your spot for whenever everything works out just right for you!

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Contacting Our Family about Adoption:

    We choose to devote our time to our beagles, which is why we have gathered detailed information from our 20+ years of experience here for our interested families to take their time learning about our family, our mission in hand raising companion beagles for approved homes, and all the helpful details about our beagles, colors, sizes, happy families stories, and more, to help families fully understand the time and devotion that has been put into their new family member from day1.

    We likewise want to learn about the families who come to us in hopes of adding one of our babies to their lives.

    Emailing is our preferred method of communication, as this  allow us the ability to better focus on our babies and responsibilities around sunshine acres, and also allows us the ability to keep track of families' details and preferences in order to further help make the right matches happen! Phone Calls from interested customers across the nation would interrupt our work here too much for us to truly devote ourselves to our beagles. When time is available, we can choose to sit down and review potential families' details together, discussing possibilities, and replying when time allows- if something comes up we can easily get up and take care of whatever is needed here, and return to writing back when time is appropriate. Being in the middle of a phone call would hinder our awareness & ability to respond to what is going on around Sunshine Acres, so as a family we have chosen not to provide our phone number to the public so as to not only have a private family life, but to be able to devote ourselves to the care of the newborns and other responsibilities that we have here at home.

    Emailing is our preferred communication,
     and allows us to devote our time appropriately, focusing our care on our babies, and reviewing & keeping track of our families' details in order to see the right matches happen!

    Please review our website information before contacting us about adoption- this lets customers learn all the helpful details before making that decision to move forward and meanwhile we use that time to devote to our babies. Once you've taken time to read, then contact us telling us about yourself so that we can tell you are sincere about adoption and we can feel comfortable in moving forward with helping you adopt one of our babies!

    We put the care of our babies first and foremost, meanwhile offering the joy we have found in our unique companion pets to sincere, patient, and understanding families across America who truly appreciate our values and where we are coming from as a family- those who would want us to devote our time & attention to our babies first, are the families we would want to adopt our babies to responsibly raise and enjoy for the years to come, sending updates and pictures as they become a part of our Happy Sunshine Acres Family!

    You can let us know if you are ready and have favorite available puppies!
    Or,

    You may ask for adoption approval to join our Pre-Approved Waiting List, and start holding your spot for just the right match when  everything works out just right for everyone!

    The different puppy preferences you may favor are pictured & detailed here: Colors, Sizes & Prices .  

    If there is anyone in line ready for this current timeframe, we will first offer our puppies to those matching pre-approved folks. They can choose to claim a matching puppy, or pass & continue waiting for a future match or timeframes. We announce & begin approving new homes for available puppies after we know the Waiting List's status.

    Different preference lines often become satisfied, as everyone has their own unique preferences! So if you are open to more colors/sizes or either gender it can be your turn to claim or pass on matches sooner!

    Our Waiting List Lines can change quickly, as pre-approved families may choose to:

    • Claim a matching puppy,

    • Pass on the Current puppies, and choose to wait on their turn for a Future Timeframe/matching puppy.

    • Change or expand their puppy preference options at any time (Genders/Colors/Sizes/sometimes facial markings/timeframes etc.) 

    To hold a spot in the claiming process, most folks like to go ahead & get themselves pre-approved & join the Waiting List to hold their spot with their deposit. The $100 deposit counts towards the purchase price, is non refundable deposit, and will hold your place in line / will hold your puppy off the market as your own so others will know that puppy has been officially claimed!

    You can place a deposit on a specific puppy once approved to hold them off the market until your appointment to come out or until homecoming time, or you can place it ahead of time and then apply that deposit towards the puppy you claim when the time comes. Often folks like to get preapproved and join now, and then they claim  their very own darling to bring home soon, depending on the options they were open to!

     If you are planning ahead, you are always welcome to seek pre-approval ahead of time to help ensure everything works out perfectly when the time comes to find, claim, and raise your new baby beagle puppy! People are always welcome to stay on the waiting list for as long as they wish, until everything works out perfectly!

    Let us know if you'd like to get yourself (& any human or pet family members!) pre-approved to choose & adopt your own matching sunshine acres baby.  Tell us about our baby's potential homelife there with you so we can feel comfortable in considering you as a good pet-home & Approving your household for the adoption of one of our babies! Also let us know what characteristics you'd love in your very own companion beagle, and If you are ready and smitten with an Available puppy, feel free to also ask about placing a deposit in order to claim one of your favorites to hold off the market till homecoming day!

    Review our details so that once you are ready to take the next step you can sincerely tell us about yourself and desire for one of our babies!  Also see more about the Deposit to join the Waiting List & to Claim your own Sunshine Acres Beagle Puppy!

    Keep an eye on our Current Litters and Upcoming Litters to see who is here and an idea of who is expecting in the near future.  We continually update with new litters' arrivals and new expectant mommies as time goes on. Ask about being pre-approved by our family for a puppy and join our waiting list to hold your spot in the process for when everything works out perfectly!

    Its works out beautifully when folks are able to plan ahead and seek our pre-approval to adopt one of our babies. When the time is right we then begin offering their preferred matches as it becomes their turn for different preference lines. By joining ahead of time, they held their spot in line ahead of time and are ahead of others in the claiming process. Sometimes people pass due to timeframes or specific desires, so the line is open to change at any time, making it possible for folks to join and be offered a chance to claim right away, or pass and continue waiting for a future turn to claim their very own matching Sunshine Acres Babies!  

     It's perfectly fine to hold your spot in line for the future! If you'll need to wait a couple weeks, months, or more for a puppy to enter your home, ask about getting pre-approved for the waiting list. Often folks like to  join the waiting list ahead of time to hold their position in the claiming process. They can then wait as long as desired, and may look forward to current or younger babies, expected litters, &/ Or  future puppies. They can choose to claim a puppy at their turn(s) if everything works out, or pass & continue waiting for any reason.

    Tell us a about your preferred timeframe and more about yourself & one of our babies' potential home life there in your household, so that we can consider you as a good puppy home, and begin an adoptive relationship, working with you to successfully find and add the right match for your approved companion pet home!

    • Why letting us know about your Matching Timeframes matters to us:

    Once on the Waiting List- what's the next step?

    Once you've made the commitment to join our sunshine acres beagle family, feel free to explore our exclusive pages for extra details and advice as your prepare for your new family member! Everyone in the family can start reviewing our puppy Guidance pages so you will know how to be consistent leaders from Day 1 for a successful puppy addition & adaptation.

    Keeping an eye on this page and what's going on around here is a great idea since things can change quickly, and this is how we as a family choose to update all of our addicted puppy followers together and more thoroughly, vs writing info to each and every viewer individually. The website allows us to go in much more detail for everyone's benefit, in between focusing our time on our babies!

    You are always welcome to chime in if one of our cuties has caught your eye, and you would be ready for their homecoming timeframe!  Even if they didn't match the original preferences you had expressed an interest in, we understand that with all the unique and beautiful characteristics our babies have, folks may always discover their admiration of an additional option! Let us know if another preference option would be equally loved by you! Then when we see a possibility for you to claim that puppy, we know you'd be interested!
     If you find yourself smitten with a current puppy you can let us know!

    If you find that any of your preferences expand or change, you can always email me with an update so I can continue to offer good matches for you to consider! We love seeing everything work out for everyone, & we like to consider the best possible matches for each of our babies. This is why we have developed our unique waiting list process for families Pre-Approved.

    Planning Ahead & Keeping up with your matches helps!  Consider whether your preferred timing for a puppy to come home matches the best time frame/week stated for each litter to enter their new homes. Then if a puppy becomes available as a good match for you,  you're family would have already thought about whether you'd be ready for them and who you would be interested in adding to your household!  Thinking ahead & letting us know helps move along the claiming process.

    If you're not Ready for a Puppy During these babies' Homecoming Timeframe, Let us know about your future plans for a Beagle Puppy! Feel free to send us timeframe updates, and continue checking out our Upcoming Mommies to get an idea of near future possibilities.

    Don't forget our Puppy Guidance Pages as you prepare for your new addition to your life!

    Beagle Puppy Care
    What do I feed?

    We start with canned Iams and Eukanuba Puppy and transition them to Dry Eukanuba Small Breed (which is the smallest kibble) and dry Iams Puppy.
    Puppies eat twice a day- when you eat breakfast and dinner. Young puppies will generally be eating 1/4 a cup twice a day, sometimes less than that if they are a nano size. You can order a bag of Iams Puppy through our Petsmart link here and quite often shipping is free on orders depending on how much you spend on other things!

    Over Feeding?
     Beagles are known to eat all you give them, so be careful to restrict how much you allow them while they are young, especially for a mini or nano to stay that way. Overfeeding can lead to a stretched stomach, before the body starts adjusting to the amount of food intake, and later a larger beagle than you had hoped for.

    Sometimes we get frantic calls from customers who fed more than we reccommended, saying "my puppy's tummy looks bloated" We say "cut back on the amount of food you feed tomorrow in order to feed appropriately to your little baby's size". Remember the food also expands when the puppy drinks water, so don't be surprised if their tummy looks large. A stretched tummy simply means their body was not meant to require that amount of food, and you simply need to cut back next time until their tummy is back to an appropriate size. Usually 1/4 a cup twice a day is the right amount for a new puppy, sometimes less for the smaller sized babies which again, you can always cut back its you see that it was too much. Its been shown that overfeeding a smaller size dog can lead to a larger one , just feed twice daily and carefully to keep a mini mini !!


    Beagle Puppy Training
    Where should my new puppy sleep?
     

    The first step to housetraining, Bathtub setup

    is setting up a confined area your bathtub for the new puppy to stay in when you aren't able to take him outside. Puppies can sleep in your  bath tub at night , with paper on one end and a doggie bed, and toys, on the other so they can use  the paper when you are busy and aren't right with them in their new house, or cant take them outside.

     Crate training can come later at around 14 -15 weeks old, and you can follow our advice on doing this easily from our tips page!

    By starting them from the time they can walk our puppies are way ahead of the game on housetraining and using paper !

    clarice in playpen setup
    Clarice has graduated to a bigger playpen setup area! She has learned to keep her bed clean, and uses the paper for hurry ups.  This setup helps you avoid accidents in your home, and allows you take your puppy outside to begin forming that routine with your schedule.  


    Beagle Puppy Training
    HouseTraining?

    Begin taking your puppy outside to a preferred spot in the yard starting their first day home. With any new dog, you will need to take them out often to begin forming a routine in your home of what door to go to and where to go in the yard.

    When you get a puppy they can start out in a confined safe-area with newspaper and bedding and toys for them to go in whenever you are not supervising them in the new house.  This can be a pet playpen, a kitchen, or a laundry area.
    When you are with your puppy he or she can play on the carpet and you can take them out as needed, but when you are not right there to supervise, they can be in their safe area and still have the option to go on paper until household routines are learned.

    Take them out as often as possible, and begin developing a routine recording how many times they went, and around what time. Keep in mind that they will need to "HurryUp" as we call it everytime they eat, drink, wake up from a nap, or play.

    Avoiding accidents that first week  learning about the new home is very helpful in housetraining.  In order to help avoid accidents, only have your puppy out on the floor when supervised, and if he or she seems to start losing interest in you and begin searching/ sniffing around, they are probably looking for a spot to go, usually by finding the scent of a spot that has already been marked as a hurry up spot (which is why avoiding accidents in the first place is good!) icon

    If accidents happen, be sure to use a good product that is meant for cleaning up pet accidents, so that the scent is completely removed from their mind!

    When you aren't able to supervise your puppy in their new household put them back in their contained safe-area so that they will be able to confidently choose paper rather than bed if they need to go. With your supervision and leadership your beagle can earn house priveleges for safe and more harmonious years to come.

    Crate Training is good for everyone involved, whether you plan to use one regularly in the future or just when needed. Getting your pet comfortable with his or her own crate there in your home ahead of time helps give them a good option in the future when you need to go out, have someone new over, or need to travel.

    cinder in crate trainingYou can start crate training after your pup can start being expected to hold their bladder through the night. b>After around 14 - 15 weeks or so, older puppies can usually start sleeping in a crate at noght, and you can plan to get up early the next morning those first few days to let them go outside, as they learn your schedule and form working lifelong routines in your home.

     You can see older puppies like Cinder who have already started learning about sleeping the crate on our Older pups page here or have been using a doggie door to go out and are past the paper training stage,

      Click here to order the Grreat Choice Dog Carrier (follow this link so petsmart knows we sent you! You can browse crates from this link too) icon

    Whenever you see your puppy walk into the open crate on their own, reinforce that decision with a "good in your bed" in a good job tone. We gave Cinder a treat in the crate, and she liked the experience of being in there! Teaching your dog a key command is good- our Grace knows "Get in your bed" and will happily go get in her crate whenever we need her to. She was taught this with a positive reinforcement as a growing pup- everytime she came in from outside we would toss a treat into the crate or have one waiting for her and tell her get in your bed, she would get in  and be rewarded with a treat, as well as a Good get in your bed! to reinforce she did good by going into the crate, and would close the door and let her spend a little time in there to dry her feet after coming in the house.

     Its helpful to start out in a designated area, with the option of paper down, and then put an open crate in their area. They can begin going into the crate to lay down and relax, and if they still need to use the paper they can go out onto it in case you aren't able to take them out when they need to go- this can help your adjusting puppy learn to gradually sleep in their own crate, but still use the paper outside of the crate if needed. When the paper is dry a few mornings in a row, then you know your puppy can hold his or her bladder through the night and can begin closing the door, and getting up early the next morning to take them out.

    Always take them out the same door, so they associate that door with going outside to hurry up, and to the same spot in the yard so they can pick up the scent of where they've gone before, and know what their outside to do! Dogs like to re-mark where they have gone before, so starting a routine of where to go from the beginning is always helpful in building those associations for them to remember for the years to come! When your new dog goes outside to 'hurry up', let them know they did a good hurry up so they will want to repeat that behavior, even on command, in the future- making for a much easier housebreaking and walk-taking experience!

    New Puppy Training Tip:

    All puppies go through learning stages as they develop.  Your new sunshine acres beagle puppy will be joining your home attentive to you, his or her human caregiver, and will be ready to begin learning the best way to fit in with your pack for the most fulfilling future. Take advantage of this special adapting time by helping them understand what habits & behaviors within this pack will be most beneficial so that everyone can be happy.

    As a pack animal, puppies are seeking out that crucial pack order and strong pack leaders to follow, which will keep them safe throughout whatever comes in the future. Dogs thrive within a pack when the proper protocol is established upfront, by confident, calm and assertive leaders to follow for the years to come. Demonstrate your leadership skills to your new baby Beagle by establishing  the ground rules from day one, and being consistent so that he can fully learn from each experience and move forward.  That assertive communication will bond you and your new k9 addition closer together as they will develop a deep respect for you.  Communicate to your new puppy what behaviors are good and beneficial, and what behaviors are bad and will not be acceptable as a lifelong habit.  By understanding the pack boundaries, they can more easily begin adapting to your household in order live the most harmonious & happy life to their wonderful full potential as your own perfect companion pet  for the many years to enjoy together !

    After the ground rules are established, your beagle will have the pridlege of enjoying fewer restrictions in the future and be given the opportunity to live an ultimately much happier life in harmony with your pack.

    Be sure to Review our New Puppy Advice Pages (Ask for the link if you've been approved)

    When deciding to get a puppy for the family- go over all the responsibilities that will be involved, ie, feeding, water, exercise, responsible play & consistent training. Discuss how each of these responsibilities will lead to a well-mannered dog. Also talk to each other about how as they get older you all will be taking the pup outside often, they usually need to go any time they eat, drink or wake up from a nap. While still small enough to use paper, a young puppy goes in his confined safe area, and you don't have to worry about peeing and pooping in the house because they don't have free-reign until they have learned from you and shown they are responsible in your home.

    Being up front about the responsibilities will let everyone in the family see that you are each serious about adoption, and have already considered all that is involved and are willing to commit as a family effort to responsibly raise a puppy as a family member!

     No Biting allowed.

    Our Number One Rule in training, Is NEVER ALLOW YOUR NEW PUPPY TO NIBBLE OR BITE ANY FLESH, even what appears to be innocent teething on your finger!    It may not hurt now, but it will later if that experimental behavior is allowed to develop into habit!

    When new families come to meet our pups, We ask that No one scrath or tickle the puppies since boundaries are still being established and Do not allow the puppies they hold to nibble or bite their fingers and hands.

    Roughousing at a young age encourages biting as an automatic response to the roughhands, and that type of energy can cause the wrong state of mind to develop during such a crucial learning & bonding time. Once your puppy is an established, responsible member of the pack, playing is fine because he already knows the boundaries- its simply important to first guide your young one through puppyhood maintaing a calm state of mind so that they can feel comfortable in being calm whenever appropriate in the future, and you will have a much easier time training, and developing obediance & trust, before the time comes to begin exploring life's adventures with your very own sidekick!

    Establishing Respect from day one is important while the new addition is observing the pack order, figuring out the boundaries and how to begin adapting to the new household pack. Help your puppy understand and learn the rules, so that they can move forward in the right direction towards a healthy relationship with your pack and bonding with lifelong masters, so that down the road your canine addition will be a responsible member of the family. By allowing a puppy to teeth on you and bite your fingers- that acceptance of his potential dominance will result in a loss of respect for you by the new k-9 addition to your home. Respecting you as the top dog in the family pack is important, so that they will be more confident in your ability to be a stonger leader for the good of the pack and they can trust your wise discernment therefore minding whatever you -their calm Assertive leader- has to say !

    Read about Puppy Guidance, for more about this Puppy Rule on our tips page. If you are a Sunshine Acres Beagle family or on the waiting list, ask for this page for our personal advice!

    Be the Pack Leader
     so your puppy can follow your dependable leadership.

    As puppies develop, they seek strong masters who are responsible and will show them the best way to live a long healthy & happy lifestyle within the pack. They follow those masters who make the best decisions for the pack as a whole, by being upfront, firm, and consistent on establishing the boundaries and ground rule that will make for a stronger pack down the road.

     From their first day home they will begin learning what behaviors seem the most beneficial to their future with your pack, and can adapt to any lifestyle that they begin learning from. This is the time to guide their adaptation so that they can learn the best way to begin fitting in with your unique pack; Be a responsible master for your learning and growing puppy by being in tune with your puppy's state of mind, understanding each situation, responding correctly so that your puppy understands the pack lesson, and can move forward in the right state of mind. The whole family must commit to a responsible instruction plan so that everyone sends the same message and is consistent in the learning process.

     It is important for forever families to guide their puppy's adaptation to their unique home & lifestyle, so the puppy can more easily understand that what boundaries this human pack has and that they are firm in those rules for the good of the pack, so now its time for puppy to learn what they need to do to fit in with this strong pack & start living in harmony!

    We start them off right, and now its up to you to continue raising your new baby beagle into your lifelong sidekick.  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 for the years to come, you will have access to our years of experience and accumulated advice, and follow our Guidance in taking over the wonderful responsibility of raising your new hand raised family-oriented sunshine beagle baby, and helping them blossom into your very own unique Companion Pet for years of enjoyable harmony!

    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!

    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.

     

     

      Kid tested....

    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.

       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!

    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.
