One of our favorite things at TwainHeart is enriching people’s lives by placing Beagles in great homes. It is a “sacred” mission to us, so we are very selective about where our Beagles go, and careful about placing the right Beagle in the right situation.

Here are some of the Beagles we’ve owned and/or bred who are now pampered pets, living their best lives with loving families.

Placed as Adults

CH. TwainHeart Viticolture de Melfi

We co-owned Russo with a wonderful family until he achieved his championship. Now he lives full-time with them and his mother, Carly.

CH. Windkist Wilderness Anticipation

Carly came to us a finished champion so we could restart our breeding program. She had five lovely puppies, two of whom became champions. Russo, pictured left, and Rona who lives at TwainHeart

CH. TwainHeart’s New Hope Springs Eternal, TKI, CGC

Meryl lives with my sister and her husband. TKI stands for Trick Dog Intermediate; CGC stands for Canine Good Citizen, AKC titles Meryl earned for doing tricks and demonstrating good dog manners.

CH. TwainHeart Santa Barbara Breakwater

Named for one of my family’s favorite places, his call name is Breaker. He is living the good life in Bellevue, WA.

CH. Briarlane Harden My Heart

Harley came to us from Canada when she was about 8 months old. She finished her championship and then was lucky to be placed with a family in Idaho who take her on all kinds of adventures.
