Ontario breeder of Purebred Beagles!
Puppies available!! September 2023
We breed all sizes and many colors of Beagles
From purebred registered champion bloodline POCKET and MINI BEAGLES to fantastic standard size Beagles 13" up to 15" and sometimes a bit taller depending on bloodline.
No matter what size they are they have the Beagle personality that we all know and love so much.
Lemon Beagles range from very light yellow to a deep honey. Some pups are born so light they appear white but they gradually develop their color and continue to darken until mature.
CHOCOLATE: These stunning pups generally have three shades of chocolate/tan. Their eyes start very blue and gradually develop until they mature. They eventually become amber or green.
Very striking! (Thank you Regina and Brittney for the pics shown above of your beautiful girls!))
RED: Red Beagles are very rare here at River Styx Scent Hounds.
We now have several females that produces this gorgeous color consistently. Molly and two of her daughers - Shanny and Stormie. In fact they have Chocolate and Red puppies in the same litter! See the video below. They also have the beautiful blue/green eyes as babies. Bonus! Molly is a firecracker deer dog and her girls are in training!
What are Pocket or Mini Beagles?

The description of Mini and Pocket Beagle are not 'official' categories in the beagle breed. However, reality is that there can be quite a size difference within the Beagle breed even when coming from Champion purebred bloodlines.
NONE OF OUR POCKET BEAGLES ARE MIXED WITH OTHER BREEDS!!
These are NOT "designer" micro or teacup Beagles produced by cross breeding
Pocket Beagle may conjure up pictures of teeny tiny little dogs being carried around in purses. However, the pocket beagle got it's name from the time of fox hunting. Hunters, for convenience, would carry their beagles in the pocket of the saddle bag on the horse.
They were a smaller beagle but not a teacup size by any means. A Pocket Beagle is under 12" at the shoulder. The weight can vary.
Pocket Beagles are NOT extinct! They are healthy, active Beagles with the same characteristics as the standard sized Beagles.
We have purebred, Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) champion bloodline Beagles that fall into this category. They are not mixed with another breed of dog. They were bred small for running in the field trials.
We are excited that new tiny Pocket Beagles will be joining the ranks for 2022. All with amazing pedigrees. No outcrosses in our Pocket Beagles!!
Currently we have a good number of very small Beagles - click name for a video:
Matilda : Tricolor w/ticking 22 pounds (updated video coming soon)
Bad Kat : Bluetick 13 pounds (she was my grouchy face baby in video)
Rensie: Tricolor (Canadian champion sired) 18 pounds
Dora: Lemon 18 pounds (daughter of Rensie)
Cookie Monster (Tricolor w/ticking) 12 pounds
Stormie D. (RARE RED & Chocolate ticked) 20 pounds
BUNNY HUNTER (Tricolor) 16 pounds
All are between 14 - 22 pounds
We have many CKC/UKC registered females that would fall in the 'mini-beagle' range. Excellent pedigrees.
I personally refer to some of our Beagles as "Mini Beagles" since they are 13" at the shoulder and fall around 18 - 22 pound range depending on gender. That's fairly mini!!
With the introduction of our Pocket Beagle stud TERRIBLE TEDDY, born and raised at River Styx Scent Hounds, we have been delighted at the Pocket Beagle puppies born since 2021. Excellent bloodline from AKC/CKC Beagles
Teddy is still terribly cute, terribly silly, terribly naughty but totally adorable!!
Our new tiny STUD will be smaller than his daddy Teddy! This little guy is named ONE TONNE DOOLEY!
