  1. I found your site after hours of scrolling and comparing dogs and sites. CLEARLY you are a very special breeder! Do you also breed for a person who would like a Beagle as a pet and not to show?? Our family is head over heals in love with this breed and are looking for a ” proper” beagle. I have had dogs all of my life and have had a ” beagle-ish” dog but never a pure beagle. Any helpful hints your could offer? We would love to have a dog from you! Thank you, Jean Neubohn

    1. πŸ™‚ Thank you for your comment, Jean! Yes, of course, all of my beagles are pets first and each breeding is done with many considerations in mind….

      As a breeder of show beagles, I am breeding according to a written standard that describes what an ideal beagle should look like in order to perform the function for which the breed was originally developed: hunting rabbits. My goal is to breed dogs that can still perform that function and at the same time exhibit the beauty and wonderful temperament of this very special breed. I also bear in mind that, in reality, very few of my dogs will spend their lives hunting but instead will spend their lives as someone’s beloved companion. Breed type, structure, health, and temperament are all equally important not only as I select the dogs that will continue on in my breeding program but also knowing that the decisions that I make in each of these areas will affect the quality of the companions that I share with others.

      It has been a joy to share this breed with many families over the years and I would be happy to discuss the breed with you further. πŸ™‚

    2. We have two Talbot Hill beagles. And Carrie is the best! Not only is she our breeder, she has become a friend. Maya (Talbot Hill Opus One) and Marco are wonderful dogs.

      1. Marco and Maya are fortunate to have you as their “Forever Family”. As I have said before, you are the Platinum Standard for beagle parents and I am so grateful for your friendship and the wonderful home that you give to my beagles!! Thank you!! ❀

  2. Hello Carrie,

    wonderful beagles that you have!

    Just wondering will you have puppies available this year?

    Best,

    Edward

  3. Hi!
    I can’t find an email contact on your page, so I hope this is an OK place to introduce myself to you!
    I am a grade A grass fed goat dairy near you! I am letting breeders in the area know that we sell goat milk for pets off our farm and at many drop points all over the area. I put my Anatolian and rat terrier litters onto goat milk at 3 weeks old, and supplement the bitch to increase her milk flow. I cover the pups food with goat milk when I start feeding as well. Goat milk is considered medicine in most of the world. It alkalinizes the body, it corrects any digestion problems and digests in 20 min. It has 30 live enzymes that aid in assimilating our food. It is the universal baby formula – all mammals can drink it. Let me know if you are interested in a free half gallon!

    1. My e-mail is listed in the column to the left on this page. Thank you for the information about goat milk. I am not actively breeding at this time but will keep the information for future reference. πŸ™‚

  4. After reading your page and researching some, we are interested in procuring a puppy, preferably a girl, but it all depends on personality. We a have a very lovable Lab mix who is excellent with smaller dogs and a cat who has grown up ignoring and loving the dogs she has lived with.

    My wife and I are very responsible pet owners and are looking for a smaller companion for our dog Baloo & our cat Minerva, We have a large fenced yard and Multiple Dog parks near by.

    Please let us know the availability and also the rates you charge. Please contact us through the Email off the post at your earliest convenience

    Sincerely

    1. I appreciate the daily inquiries that I receive regarding my upcoming litter. πŸ™‚ It is my first litter in six years, it will be my only litter this year, and I will not have another litter for at least two years. I am very excited to have another litter of puppies after surviving cancer in 2008…and the physical, financial, and personal aftermath…..but, as I have stated on this site…I am not responding to inquiries at this time. At this point, I do not even know if Tiny is pregnant. I don’t know how many puppies she will have or if I will have any for sale. An application notice will be posted in the blog in May, if and when I know that she is expecting. Screening potential homes for my puppies is a responsibility that I take very seriously and it is a process that I am not yet ready to undertake. As mentioned in the “I Want A Talbot Hill Puppy” post, pet puppies are $800 and I do not maintain a waiting list. To receive the latest news and to be notified as soon as an application is available, please “Follow” the Talbot Hill blog.

      1. Getting excited to hear about the upcoming litter. Hoping we are able to adopt one of your puppies. We are excited to hear how the delivery goes… it must be exciting for you too!

  5. I wish there were more beagle breeders such as you with your ethical, caring, loving ways. I live in California and have a beagle now but would love another one in the future. I would even be willing to drive to Talbot Hill to pick one up! I’ve tried looking for breeders in California but most of the them are no longer breeding. Any additional info you can provide will be most appreciated. Again, thank you and wishing you much health!!!πŸŒΊπŸŽ€

    1. Thank you for your kind remarks, Cindy. There are many reputable breeders in California. I would suggest that you start by inquiring at Danter Beagles in Clovis, CA. http://www.danterbeagles.com Terri got her initial brood bitch from Talbot Hill so many of her dogs go back to my breeding. She is a sweet and caring person and if she doesn’t have puppies now, she would be able to point you in the direction of a good breeder who is expecting puppies.

  6. Once the puppies are available to the public, I would be very interested in adopting one as a family dog. We have a nice yard and 2 loving girls dying for a Beagle!

  7. We are very interested in your puppies! You seem like a very special breeder, and we have heard good things about you. We have been looking the perfect beagle for months. We would love if we could meet one of these beagles when they are available to the public! We have a huge yard and will take a beagle into our loving arms. We live in Bellevue, and getting to Seattle will be no problem at all. Thank you so much, and we hope to make one of these adorable puppies part of our family.

    1. Thank you for your interest in my beagles, Alka. I hope to start making some decisions about the future of my puppies in the next few weeks. Please “Follow” my blog for an announcement about an available puppy or puppies. πŸ™‚

  8. Can you recommend breeders in washington state that might have puppies for sale? I understand all of your current puppies (for pets) are taken. Thanks!

  9. I am in Oregon travelling to Seattle. Do You have any beagle puppies available. Mine would be a good home and I have experience and good rferences. Thanks, Don

    1. Thank you for you interest in Talbot Hill Beagles. All of the puppies from my 2015 litter have found new homes. Information about a 2016 litter will be announced in October 2015. Please “Follow” my blog for news about upcoming litters. πŸ™‚

  10. I am currently looking for a beagle puppy. Not looking for a show pup just an addition to our family. I currently have a four year old beagle. MY LOVE child. And would love to add another. Can you help me?

    1. Hi Kelly!

      As mentioned above, information about acquiring a Talbot Hill puppy is described on the Puppy Application page of my site. Please follow the instructions and fill out an application. I have not yet reviewed any of the applications for the 2016 litter and do not maintain a waiting list so once the litter arrives, everyone will be on an equal footing. I will begin to contact people by e-mail when I know that I have puppies available. Please follow my blog for the latest updates and photos.

  11. Good morning Carrie, I am so excited to have come across your website! Your puppies are absolutely beautiful and exactly what my husband and I are looking for!
    I did read that you removed the application for the June 2016 litter. Please contact us if something changed and you happen to have a puppy available. Thank you so much in advance!

  12. I am currently a beagle owner. He is 12 and is dying of mesothelioma. I at first didn’t want to replace him he is very special to me but I think it might be good therapy! I am very interested in a puppy!! My name isRoxanne

    1. I’m so sorry that you are going through this difficult time, Roxanne. I wish the best for you and your beagle in the days ahead.

      Please “follow” my blog for news about the litter and for an announcement when applications will be accepted. An application will be posted on my blog in mid-May. I will not be considering homes for the puppies until that time.
