Current Puppies and Litters
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN AN OLDER PUPPY OR ADULT PLEASE
CHECK OUR AVAILABLE PAGE AND CONTACT US DIRECTLY. OUR
SITE IS NOT ALWAYS UP TO DATE IN THAT AREA. THANK YOU.
PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE WHAT LITTERS HAVE ARRIVED
AND ARE PLANNED IN THE FUTURE
PLEASE NOTE: We NEVER produce a litter unless we require something to show for the next year!
All of our litters are intended to produce something for US to show first and foremost.
With the help of our wonderful puppy raiser, Stephanie Fitzgerald, and her
family we are expecting litters from our line in 2015. I will be attending competitions
too often to whelp and raise litters and I am so thankful for their assistance.
They give our babies the love and attention the require to become well rounded,
healthy and happy adults and they follow our precise rearing program that has
been established by me through many years as a breeder.
Stephanie would be happy to answer any questions that I am unable to concerning
her rearing process but she is unable to answer specific questions such as genetic
testing, breeding selections or pedigrees and general Beagle health questions that
may be important to prospective families. Stephanie and her family love what they
do but their responsibility to my breeding program only involves raising our babies
in the best environment possible and that is her responsibility full time.
We allow our puppies to start going to their new homes between 8-10 weeks of age
depending on when they are weaned as we believe in a natural weaning process.
Once the puppies are fully weaned and evaluated they are ready to join their new families.
OUR PUPPIES WILL:|
- Be regularly dewormed at 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 weeks.
- Be given their first in a series of Duramune Max 5/CVK/4L vaccinations.
- Be given Bronchi Shield III kennel cough preventative.
- Be given their first dose of Heartworm preventative.
- Be introduced to house and crate training.
- Be given an evaluation for energy level, personality and disposition.
- Come with an outstanding health and satisfaction guarantee and one week trial period.
- Come with AKC limited (non-breeding) registration.
- Come with lifetime support and mentorship.
- Come with a free consultation concerning puppy proofing, training and other subjects.
- Come with multiple articles concerning bonding, positive reinforcement and other topics.
- Be delivered to your home at no additional charge up to 350 miles of Staunton VA.
NOTE CONCERNING DELIVERY:
Personal delivery up to 350 miles of our location is included in the purchase price of your new
puppy. This allows us to see where the baby will be living and see how they interact with their
new prospective family members and other pets. It also allows me to answer any crate placement
and puppy proofing questions. If we arrive and after the initial introduction we feel that the fit is not
a good one we fully understand and will be happy to take the puppy right back home. If the puppy
seems to be a good fit we allow a one week trial period to be certain.
We do offer personal ground delivery up to 10 hours driving distance (650 miles) at an additional fee
and prefer that method of delivery but airline shipping is also available. We can assure you that
shipping your puppy by airline is safe and puppies that are well adjusted are not traumatized during
the flight. There are strict federal regulations in place concerning how animals are cared for during
airline transport and in all of my years of breeding I have shipped countless puppies and have never
had a puppy become lost, inured or traumatized. If you are interested in shipping by airline there are
additional fees for the shipping crate, veterinary health certificate and the actual cost of shipping which
is usually between $340-$380. We prefer to use Delta Dash counter to counter service.
WHEN DO WE HAVE LITTERS?
We have litters ONLY when we need something to show. If there is a litter planned or posted it is
because I intend on keeping at least one puppy from that litter, and usually more, to show to it's
AKC Championship and continue to better the breed.
WHEN WILL WE HAVE PUPPIES AVIALABLE?:
We are currently having a few litters during the slow show season to keep a handful of puppies
for our program. In a litter of 6 puppies only 1-2 are usually considered to have show potential.
The remaining puppies we offer as family companions to select homes and the small differences
between the show puppies and companion puppies can normally only be detected by a trained eye.
We will have a few puppies available from mid October through late December as we determine
which puppies will be staying here at Lane Rae and be available to loving families. We do not
condone spur of the moment purchasing of our puppies as Christmas presents. Prospective
homes will be very carefully screened.
If you are interested in knowing more about our puppies please take a moment to fill out our Puppy
Questionnaire. We have decided to start using this tool as an easy way to contact us but do not
mean this as a impersonal method of contact. If you prefer to send us an email or text message
please do so and I will respond to all emails as messages as soon as I can.
Though most of our Beagles do run rabbits they are AKC show bred primarily. This means they are
not your average Beagle you see in your neighborhood. Show bred Beagles are typically more stocky,
have less energy, are more outgoing and usually more attentive and easily trained.
