Current & Future Litters



We do not have any pups for sale. We have litters on the ground most of the time but all of the pups are started & then tough decisions are made as to what gets sold. I usually have a good idea about how many pups I will keep out of a litter before I even breed the dogs. 

It gets tough to make the decision on what to hold on to & what to let go of because the whole litter normally turns out to be very good. The reason they do is because of all the work Larry Naylor did for over 50 years, culling hard to get it to the point that I can breed dogs & get very good results consistently. I usually make my decisions based on color, sex, or how good one’s mouth is because the hunt, brains, & handle will be real close most of the time.

I decided back in 2009 not to sell puppies any more. The reason for my decision was:

I love starting pups & turning them into young rabbit dogs.

Though they would make great pets, it would be a shame not to make them rabbit dogs due to their ability.

If I start them before I sell them, they will represent our kennel well. I look at it this way: People will judge my kennel by what they see the dogs do in the field. I would rather be judged on my training than to be judged on someone else’s training. If someone sees one of the young pups at 5-6 months old absolutely burning a rabbit up while they’re hunting with you they will say: “where did you get that pup?” & they want to get one from us but if I sold it as an unstarted puppy & it was just hanging around your feet not performing at all they would say: “where did you get that thing?” When you mention Beagles on Fire they would say: “They raise junk! I don’t need to call them for a dog.”

I know there are plenty of people who can train a beagle & get one started but I figure if I start my pups I’ll always know I haven’t sold a dog that won’t hunt because they’re hunting when they leave here. I've been getting good reports from the people who have purchased young started dogs from me so it's working well this way.

I try to live by this: " If it ain't broke don't fix it"

Breedings for 2017





Dynamite has been bred to Hunt. Dynamite is as solid of an all around rabbit dog as you will find & jumps a lot of rabbits. Hunt is a tremendous dog that is always a pleasure to go to the field with. This cross should be the real deal. Pups will be here in June & ready in January.

Dynamite had 10 pups on 7/1/17. She currently has 3 males & 3 females.






Georgia had 9 pups on 9/24/17. She currently has 3 males & 6 females.

Georgia has been bred to Hunt. This has produced some very good dogs in the past. Georgia is one of those dogs that is always gonna give you her all. She’s a dog I’ve been asked to sell several times before but I’ve never even considered her going anywhere.

Hunt is absolutely amazing & has some serious drive. He is producing some great dogs. Pups will be born in late September & should be ready in January-February.

Breedings for 2018






Charm had 9 pups on 3/23/18. She currently has 2 males & 2 females. Pups ahould be ready to go around September.





Flame has been bred to Uga. I have made this cross in the past & the results have been fantastic. These should be some beautiful red-ticks that can really get the job done. Pups will be here in April & should be ready to go in September to October.





Pistol has been bred to Pepper. This cross was made last year & the offspring did very well. They had real good hunt, handle, & turned out real well. Pups will be here in April & should be ready to go in September - October.





Misty has been bred to Uga. Misty is a daughter to Lil Blue & Pepper. She is a real good rabbit dog with a lot of hunt & has been doing amazing things from an early age. This is her first time to be bred. I believe this cross will be something else. Pups will be born in April & should be ready to go September - October.





Rosie has been bred to Uga. I had bred Rosie to Buster in the past. Rosie is a great dog with outstanding hunt. She stays busy all the time. Uga is a great male with the total package. I believe this will be a great cross. Pups will be here in May & should be ready October - November.





Daisy has been bred to Hunt. Daisy is a sister to Pepper. I bred these 2 last year & have the pups from that cross in the training pen now. They are doing just fine. These 2 dogs are good dogs. Hunt is an amazing all around rabbit dog that will give you everything he has each time out. Pups will be here in May & should be ready October - November.

Each year more people find out about us so the demand for dogs gets to be greater each year but I will never compromise quality for quantity. These are not dogs you find every day especially performing so well at such a young age. 

This isn't just luck! Over 50 years of selective breeding & high standards went into producing these dogs before I was fortunate enough to get my hands on the bloodline 15 years ago. 

I have taken the ball & ran with it. A lot of work & time goes into making these young dogs perform to the level that they do. I will pull no punches. My goal is simple: I am trying & hoping to show you the best young started dog you can buy. I know there are other good young dogs around but I strive to be at the top. I don't disrespect what anyone else is breeding or their training methods. I just feel like we are having great success with what we are doing so if it ain't broke why change?

If you are skeptical about young started dogs being much to hunt with read the testimonials of people who have bought some in the past & call any of the people who left their phone number on the testimonial.

I know some of you are probably thinking there's no way all of the above crosses can be that consistently good. I'll just say this, most people that come with the intention of buying just 1 young dog end up wanting more of them when they see them in person & most people come back here to make their future purchases when they want a dog. 

I always tease people by saying these dogs are like Lays potato chips…….you can't have just one.

Come check out our dogs & see for yourself what they are & know this I stake my reputaion on every dog that leaves here so I'm gonna make sure they're right before you come here to see them.
