The reason the editor (Don) spends 1000s of hours developing, updating, and maintaining this online magazine and public information website is to promote the sports of Beagling and rabbit hunting to a worldwide audience. He believes all Beagles should be bred with the genetic traits that make them great hunters, whether or not the hound is ever used for hunting. Don and many other Beaglers worldwide feel that the primary breeding concern of every Beagle breeder should be to keep this breed’s proud hunting heritage alive for future generations through proper breeding. He never wants to see the Beagle breed turned into “non-hunting” show dogs or “walkie-talkie” brace dogs. This website will show and educate all visitors on the fact that Beagles are rabbit hunting hounds and that running hounds for pleasure or rabbit hunting can be a beautiful thing. Rabbit hunting for food and sport is an integral part of wildlife conservation and the American Hunting Heritage. Beagles that are properly bred to keep their superb hunting instincts, also make the absolute, greatest family pets, gundog bench show dogs, field trial hounds, and agility/obedience/tracking competition dogs. Beagles are part of the hound group and are one of the oldest breeds of hunting dog in the world. Please, join the editor and the entire BEAGLES UNLIMITED Magazine staff in their quest to keep the “hunting instinct and traits” in Beagles so the beautiful hunting ancestry of the Beagle will live on forever.
