PLEASE BEWARE......A POLITE NOTE TO POTENTIAL PUPPY BUYERS FROM WEST MERCIA BEAGLE CLUB ....
IT HAS COME TO THE ATTENTION OF MOST OF THE UK BEAGLE BREED CLUBS THAT THERE HAS BEEN AN UNPRECEDENTED SURGE IN NEW PUPPY ENQUIRIES OVER THE LAST MONTH OR SO......and at the moment there are not enough puppies to meet this demand which in turn is leading to us being informed of a number of scams.
AS A BEAGLE BREED CLUB WE ARE NATURALLY BECOMING INCREASINGLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE NUMBER OF REPORTED SCAMS …..WE ARE SEEING BUYERS BEING ASKED TO PAY A EXTORTIONATE PRICE FOR AN ON LINE PUPPY THAT NEVER ARRIVES.
Reputable beagle breeders who are selling K.C. registered puppies will not be looking to charge greatly increased prices for their puppies, and prospective puppy owners need to spend time researching the beagle breeder where possible.
Anyone wishing to buy a puppy should firstly check the ‘ Find a Puppy’ section on the official Kennel Club web site…. https://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/services/public/findapuppy
There are breed clubs that cover the whole of the U.K that have information on their web sites regarding beagle puppies, along with points to help you decide if a beagle is suitable for your family. Our own website is www.westmerciabeagleclub.co.uk and there are links on our website to the other beagle breed clubs websites. Also on the website is West Mercia Beagle Club’s Code of Ethics which is the minimum standard expected from breeders. And a link to Beagle Welfare, the breed’s own charity, on which you can find some excellent reading material.
Please take time to do a little research into the breed – it’s a big decision that’s not to be rushed.
Older puppies and adults sometimes available to
