Current & Future Litters

WE DO NOT SELL PUPPIES

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

DSCN2610

Little Ann

DSCN0869

Hunt

Little Ann has been bred to Hunt. This is the same cross as Georgia bred to Hunt as they are littermate sisters. Little Ann is a very dependable dog that can be totally trusted with no collar on to run nothing but a rabbit & come back & tell on any dog who decides to run trash. She can do it all. Hunt is all out each time you take him. He will have bloody ears, tail, eyes, etc because he will be running a rabbit wherever the rabbit goes. Thick briars, swamp, across water, etc it doesn’t matter to Hunt. This should produce some very good rabbit running maniacs. Pups will be born in March & should be ready in September.

IMG_0650

Little Ann had 10 pups on 3/17/17. She currently has 3 males & 3 females.

Every pup Little Ann has ever had was solid red

Gogetta

IMG_2557

Poncho

Gogetta has been bred to Poncho. This should be a great cross just like last time when I bred them. This is a daughter bred back to her sire.

Gogetta is an excellent rabbit dog. She's full of hunt & is a real go-getter thus the name. I might keep something out of this cross myself. Poncho has been a beast in the past. He’s older now & mainly gets used to start dogs with as well as to produce more rabbit dogs but he is the real deal. Pups should be here in April & ready to go around September - October.

IMG_0851

Gogetta had 9 pups on 4/12/17. She currently has 5 males & 1 female.

Moxy

DSCN0180

Uga

Moxy has been bred to Uga. This is a proven cross that has produced some very nice hard hunting red-ticks in the past. Several people have enjoyed what these 2 have produced. I’m sure these won’t last long as they will have very good hunt, handle great, & have very good line control. Pups will be here in April & ready in October.

DSCN0360

Tiger

IMG_3577

Yetti

Tiger has been bred to Yetti. I made this cross last year & I kept a female & named her Classy. Classy is as good of a young dog as you’ll find. Full of hunt & drive with brains & handles like a dream. I plan to keep another one out of this cross. 

Tiger & Yetti are both great rabbit dogs that anyone would be proud to own. They can get it done & will hunt from the time you drop the tail gate till you load them back up. There’s no quit! Pups will be here in April & should be ready in October.

IMG_0990

Tiger had 10 pups on 4/23/17. She currently has 5 males & 5 females.

Marly

IMG_3576

Pepper

Marly has been bred to Pepper. Marly is out of Sandy & Joe. She is an awesome rabbit dog that is full of hunt & no quit. Pepper is very impressive & is throwing a ton of great dogs each time I breed him. This is Marly’s first litter. I expect this cross to be a home run. Pups will be here in April & ready to go in November.

DSCN2628

Lil Blue

IMG_3576

Pepper

Lil Blue has been bred to Pepper. This cross produced some very fine rabbit dogs last time I bred them. Lil Blue is a very determined dog that will hunt her tail off & won't quit. She jumps a lot of rabbits & is a pure joy to own.

Pepper is a super nice dog. He hustles a lot & is not only beautiful in the looks dept but he's got it all. I really am excited about this cross. Pups will be born in April & should be ready around November. 

IMG_0937

Lil Blue had 2 pups on 4/15/17 1 male & 1 female

IMG_4579

Brandy

DSCN0869

Hunt

Brandy has been bred to Hunt. Brandy is a very fine young dog that is out of Buster & Rosie. She is ate up with hunt & is all out each time you go. Hunt is as good of a dog as you’ll find. You can’t take Hunt out without his ears, eyes, nose, tail, etc being shredded & bleeding. This cross is a first time but should produce extreme hunt & I think it will be amazing. Pups will be here in April & ready in November.

IMG_0943

Brandy had 3 pups on 4/16/17. She currently has 1 male & 2 females.

IMG_0161

Fire

DSCN0180

Uga

Fire has been bred to Uga again. This cross was amazing last time. I kept a female & named her Wildfire. She’s as good as it gets in my opinion. Severl others have been asking when this cross was gonna happen again because they loved what they gor as well. Pups will we born in May & be ready in November.

DSCN2592

Flame

DSCN0180

Uga

Flame has been bred to Uga again. The last cross was also great. Flame & Fire are littermate sisters so both of these will be the same. Pups will be born in May & ready in November.

Peach

DSCN0869

Hunt

Peach has been bred to Hunt. Hunt is really throwing some great pups. He is full of energy, hustle, & hunt. It seems to show in the pups he sires. Peach has thrown some very fine pups in the past. I believe this will be a strong cross. Pups will be here in June & ready in November - December.

DSCN2632

Natural

IMG_3576

Pepper

Natural has been bred to Pepper. Natural is a littermate to Lil Blue & does a great job in the field. She's named Natural because she is a natural born rabbit dog. The very 1st time she laid eyes on a rabbit at 8 weeks old she went after it like an older dog & was easy to get started. Pepper is an awesome male that is a joy to hunt with. The blood that each side of this cross is out of is a long list of straight up rabbit dogs. Pups will be here in May & ready November - December.

DSCN0418

Lettie

IMG_3576

Pepper

Lettie has been bred to Pepper. This is another Sandy/Joe daughter bred to Pepper. This has been a recipe for disaster if you’re a rabbit. Lettie is relentless in her hunt & Pepper is amazing as well. Pups will be here in June & should be ready to go in December - January.

IMG_0167

Brownie

DSCN0009

Awesome

Brownie has been bred to Awesome. I bred her to Poncho last time with great results but Poncho is not around any more so I went with Awesome. I used to breed Brownie to Buster but he is deceased as well. Buster is the sire & Rosie is the dam to Awesome. Awesome has a ton of hunt as does Brownie. I believe this cross will produce dogs with a lot of hunt & the desire & ability to drive a rabbit extremely well. Pups will be here in June & should be ready in December - January.

DSCN2641

Dynamite

DSCN0869

Hunt

Dynamite is in heat & will be 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.

DSCN0180

Uga

Hottie has been bred to Uga. This is a proven cross & Hottie has produced a bunch of great young rabbit dogs in the past. Hottie has a ton of search & is a great jump dog that is always in the thicket. She is a dog that I can use to know if the young dogs are rabbits or trash. She's the complete package.

Uga is a great dog that has a ton of hunt as well. Uga is a dog that I'm very proud to own. 

***X-rays on 7/26/16 show 6 pups 

IMG_3193

IMG_0167

Brownie

IMG_2557

Poncho

Brownie is a daughter to Cricket & Poncho. She is the real deal & has produced some awesome dogs like Georgia & Little Ann just to name 2 that are awesome. I normally breed her to Buster but he is deceased so I decided to breed her back to her sire, Poncho. I will keep a male out of this litter for a hunting dog & also as a future stud to replace Poncho when he is no longer around. I'll probably keep a female or 2 also. 

Brownie has a tremendous amount of hunt & no quit. These characteristics normally pass down in her pups. 

IMG_3276

Brownie had 8 pups 0n 8/17/16. She currently has 1 male & 5 females.

Natural

IMG_3576

The very 1st time she laid eyes on a rabbit at 8 weeks old she went after it like an older dog & was easy to get started. Pepper is an awesome male that is a joy to hunt with. I bred Natural to Joe last time & had fantastic pups. Joe is not around any more so I'm going with Pepper who has proven to throw great pups as well. 

IMG_3738

Natural had 7 pups on 9/17/16. She currently has 5 males & 1 female.

DSCN2608

Georgia

DSCN0869

Hunt

Georgia has been bred to Hunt. Georgia is an awesome rabbit dog that's full of hunt, handles great, & is a tattle tale on any trash runners. She's been broke & telling on trash runners since she was 14 months old. Georgia is a dog that most people who watch her run are really impressed with.

Hunt is a grandson of Hunter "the retrieving beagle" & a son to Hunter, Jr. Jr is who I bred to Georgia the last 2 times with great success. The reason I didn't breed Jr this time is his sperm count is very low so I was afraid the breeding wouldn't take. Hunt is an outstanding young dog that had an awesome season last year. He will have his ears torn up, the hair around his eyes torn up, etc at the end of every hunt. He really lives up to his name & I'm so happy & pleased with Hunt & wouldn't consider selling him at all. 

These pups should be ate up with drive & should be something to really be proud to own & a pleasure to hunt with. 

IMG_3835

Georgia had 10 pups on 10/9/16. She currently has 2 males & 6 females.

 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.
