The National Beagle Club has a large directory with details about the breeders, including whether they have stud dogs available and if they have puppies, adults or field-trained dogs on an occasional basis. The directory also provides the breeder's name, city and state, and cellphone number if available. The club notes that all breeders on the list are club members or supporters, although that does not mean the club necessarily endorses all of the breeders.

Although Petfinder does not list beagle breeders, it does list beagle puppies and dogs available through various rescue groups and shelters. If a potential dog owner is willing to consider rescue beagles and shelter beagles, Petfinder is another good resource.
