Acquiring a Bakerstreet Puppy
How a Puppy Is Chosen
We generally have between two to three well planned litters a year. Our dams are carefully matched to a qualified stud to produce puppies of sound mind, health and structure. We strive to conform to our breed standard.
Our puppies are part of our family and raised in the home where they are well socialized to new sights and sounds. We generally place our puppies at about 8 - 9 weeks of age after they have received their initial shots and worming. A puppy packet is provided for each of our puppies including health history, five generation pedigree, care and feeding information, housebreaking and obedience tips along with a contract that comes with a guarantee against hereditary problems.
Our pet puppies are sold with limited AKC registration and a spay/neuter agreement following the successful completion of an interview. Prospective families should be aware that most puppies will have homes before they are even born and that being placed on a waiting list is not uncommon. Preference will be given to placing show quality puppies in show homes, however, our primary goal is to ensure a safe and loving home for each of our puppies for the rest of their lives.
Puppy Placement Procedure
Our pups are placed with a written agreement and are sold to Approved Homes only. Our contract requires all puppies sold as companions must be spayed or neutered and they are sold on AKC Limited registration.
Some things you should know before contacting us to inquire about buying a puppy...
Our dogs are housedogs, all of them. They may spend time in the kennel during the day but they all sleep in the house. If you intend to keep one of our pups as an outside dog PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT US. Beagles are family members, not merely dogs. They are very people oriented and they want to be with their people wherever that is -- in the house, outside, etc. A Beagle whose life is spent in a backyard, in a kennel run, in a crate, or one who receives a pat now and then with his water and food, is a miserable creature.
We also do not sell pups to brokers, pet stores or chains. We do not place puppies into their new homes as a gift. If a litter is ready to go to their new home around a major holiday we hold the pup until the chaos of the season has settled down.
after we have met and spoken with you and it
is agreed you will provide a loving home for a puppy and you wish to
a puppy from us, your name will be put on awaiting list. Should
the litter not produce a pup that
a match in temperament for your family, it will be necessary for you to
wait for one of our up-coming litters. We look at each family's
needs, the potential home environment and each individual pups needs
personality and make the best match between the two. Please read How
