    Well, me and my family are in the business of getting a new dog. I wanted a GSD but the family out voted me, we have decided to get a new beagle to fill in the spot left by our most precious girl Marigold who disappeared on us about 5 months ago(though no dog could ever replace my little girl [​IMG] )
    I have been searching all over the internet and am having trouble locating beagle breeders in our area...at least breeders who have the tan and white coloration that Marigold had. Now I know its a long shot but I thought I might as well see if anybody knew any beagle breeders in the Louisiana area who might have a tan and white(red and white, lemon and white, etc. ) beagle puppy available...even just a suggestion would be helpful.

    If I may be so forward as to make a suggestion----- try a rescue!

    2008 I adopted Norman the beagle hound from Hookie's Hounds Beagle Rescue. Small adoption fee, big satisfaction, giving a home to a dog that needs you.

    I agree 100%! There are so many excellent animals out there in desperate need of homes. We got our Moxie from a rescue when she was 8 weeks old, and couldn't ask for a better dog. [​IMG]

    I would definitely try a rescue fist. After the loss of Marigold, what could be a better way of honoring her than to save the life of another beagle in need. There are so many great dogs out there, but sadly many of them are put down every day.

    If you don't find a rescue dog that works for you, make sure you buy from a responsible breeder. No BYB's or Puppy Mills! [​IMG] Their are a lot of qualities you should look for in a responsible dog breeder. I think this site covers the most important points: http://www.raisingspot.com/adopting/how-to-choose-dog-breeder
    This
    one has some good info too: http://www.dogplay.com/GettingDog/where.html

    Whatever
    you choose, use your best judgement, good luck finding your new addition to the family! [​IMG]
