    Thanks! I have emailed more than half a dozen of the breeders on their website who are located close to me but have yet to get a response from any (bar one who has no pups available now in the near future).

    Any other thoughts?

    Look...it is school holidays and people might be away...also breeders might be at shows, so it can take some time for them to get back to you.

    Some might not return emails if they do not have puppies.

    Emails are "easy" to overlook...phone calls are not so easy. I think sometimes a phone call works better...establishing a "connection" between you and the breeders. I would pick up the phone.

    Only 2 Beagle breeders in QLD are advertising puppies on DogzOnline. Registered breeders will often use this site...those 2 breeders are:

    Baldev Beagles

    Kislev Beagles > Home

    What you could do too...is attend All breeds dog shows and have a chat to some of the Beagle owners/breeders

    ETA:...sometimes you need to travel outside your own State etc to get a good puppy. There are breeders and then there are BREEDERS.

    You don't want a puppy from a breeders where they are spitting out puppies every second they get...you DEFINITELY do not want a puppy from a pet shop.

    Word of advice...good solid breeders do not need to advertise their puppies in the newspaper or on Internet sites like GumTree and classifieds. They sell their puppies from word-of-mouth...being members of State Clubs and by advertising on DogzOnline.

    how much homework have you done regarding the Beagles?

    Look...Beagles are cute, but need a lot of work. They are very scent oriented and can be quite stubborn. They need a fair bit of training and should "have a job to do". They love diffing and WILL dig up your yard if they are bored.

    Beagle

    Breed: Beagle
    Temperament: Friendly but stubborn
    Cost: $500
    Lifespan: 12-13 years
    Recommended for: Families
    Popularity: Rising
    Maintenance: Low
    Dumpage Rate: Low
    What is small, energetic, low maintenance and good company for children under the age of 10 years? Besides another small child, the choice is a Beagle.
    Appearance

    In Australia Beagles are about 30-40cm (13-16") tall and weigh 11-13kg (24-30lb). They are a small to mid-sized breed, with a short, smooth coat usually tricoloured or tan and white.
    Temperament & training

    The Beagle is said to be lively, inquisitive, and tolerant of children but most owners admit they are also stubborn and single-minded especially if nosedown on a scent! Most people who have owned Beagles soon realise that some skill is required to train them.
    Beagles are used successfully by the Australian Quarantine Inspection Service (AQIS) in major airports to detect illegal imports.
    Steve Austin, of Hanrod Dog Training Centre, who trains the AQIS Beagles, says of 20 Beagles offered for training only one may be suitable. These dogs need to display initiative, independent thinking, and respond to food rewards. He says these dogs are selected for a specific purpose, using their sense of smell - at which they excel - but pet Beagles may require more time and perseverance to train. A structured training program is strongly recommended for all Beagles.
    Health & lifespan

    The Beagle is a tough little dog with few health problems. Main areas to watch are: obesity - which can lead to problems such as back strain.
    anal glands - some owners report problems with blockages in the dog's anal glands, located on either side of the anus. This is usually indicated by the dog dragging its bottom along the ground. It can be treated at home by squeezing out the affected area or if you are unsure about doing this, take your dog to a vet.
    Most Beagles live for 12-13 years.
    Ideal owner, space & exercise

    The Beagle is highly recommended as a pet for families with children under the age of 10 years. As Beagles are adept diggers, the yard must be well-fenced. As with all breeds, they must be on a leash when walked.
    Grooming & feeding

    The short, smooth coat needs an occasional wash and brush. Beagles are said to "vacuum" up their food and must have their diets monitored.
    Housepet potential

    Being a small, smooth-coated dog they suit many people as an indoor dog, although they do develop a very "doggy" odour even when washed regularly.

    I have googled and googled various breeds for months on end! We put getting a dog on hold because I was teaching out west on a contract and knew I may be moving. I now have a perm job and know I won't be moving for a while. We also now have a secure good sized yard. DF and I are living together and since he does shift work out puppy wouldn't be left home alone for long periods of time!

    Amy there is a young beagle currently in Blacktown Pound in NSW. If not adopted from the pound he may go to a rescue group for adoption. Do you want me to find out and let you know if he becomes available?

    Link to pound info sheet:
    Impounding Number : 00575 - beagle X : Blacktown City Council Animal Holding Facility

    And some extra pics:
