Pocket Beagle History . . .

Olde English Pocket Beagles originated in England. They were used

to hunt small animals, such as rabbits. English hunters appreciated

the smaller Olde English Pocket Beagles because they could travel

under brush and briars. The hunters at that time only traveled by

horse back and found it easier to travel with the small beagles due to

the fact that the small breed would fit into the hunters' saddle bags.

Hence the name Olde English Pocket Beagle was born!

After a period of time and a decrease in game, hunters started hunting

a broader range of territory. The small beagles could neither travel as

far nor as fast as the larger beagles. Therefore, Pocket Beagles were no

longer popular with the hunters. This change in the method of

hunting almost resulted in the extinction of the OEPB.  There are a

very few actual breeders of Olde English Pocket Beagles in the USA

today. Please, research other facilities claiming to raise Pocket Beagles.

Backyard breeders are popping up more and more along with those

that are crossing Beagles with other breeds in order to develop a

"teacup" or "miniature" beagle.

Pocket Beagles USA has spent many, many years researching the

breed and learning new ways to maintain the health and quality of

the breed. We actually sold adult breeding dogs to Robert Mock, the

founder of the Olde English Pocket Beagle Registry, in order for him

to establish his breeding program.

We are very proud to be a part of the foundation of the re-

establishment of the Olde English Pocket Beagle Breed.
