Jeff and Susan Armstrong have been showing the Beagle breed in conformation and performance (obedience, agility, rally, tracking and field work) events since 1995. Before that time, we showed German Shepherd Dogs beginning in 1985. Since 1995, we have concentrated on beagles. All of our beagles are raised in a home environment and socialized whether going to a show home or as a pet/companion. We prefer the sire and dam chosen for breeding to pass health tests for hips, thyroid, patellas, Musladin-Lueke Syndrome (MLS), Factor VII (a bleeding disorder), and Eye Certification. We use the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals as a guide for testing.
Puppies (when available) are sold with a written contract that stipulates they be returned back to us, at any age, if the person can no longer keep it. All puppies evaluated as a pet/companion come with a spay/neuter agreement (A.K.C. Limited registration). We do not allow puppies to leave before 10 weeks old. All L.T. Beagle puppies will have their first vaccinations, dewormed, microchipped and crate trained before leaving for their new home. Whether puppies are sold to be shown in conformation, to be used in performance events or sold as a pet/companion, we will offer support to the buyer for the life of the dog.
