My husband and I live in Brisbane, Australia and purchased our first beagles in 2007, a few months after we purchased our first home together.
Sally and Leia came home in January 2007 and we fell in love with this merry little hound. We became involved with the Beagle Club of Queensland and have met some wonderful people along the way. During this time, we offered to be foster carers for The Beagle Club of QLD rescues. We nearly had quite a few foster failures! But some we were also happy to pass onto their new owners. One of note was found walking all over the bonnet of our car the night of his desexing…
From there, Andrew and I decided to go to some dog shows and meet some beagle breeders. Dog showing was a whole new world to us! Now it seems, it is our world.
I have to thank some very special people for giving us the opportunities to own some wonderful beagles, with fantastic pedigree’s to help create our foundation for Asalei Beagles.
Sara Skinner of Baldev Beagles for allowing us to purchase our Abby – Ch Baldev Blonde Bombshell.
Leanne and Christophe Duval of Beagelee Beagles and Wire Fox Terriers for entrusting us with and co-owing Keeper – Ch Beagleee Keep The Spirit.
Without the generosity of these two breeders, we wouldn’t have had the great start into the beagle world we’ve been given.
Our prefix is a combination of Abby, who is our foundation, and Sally and Leia who started our love for this breed.
