Foster Parent Program
Please read this before submitting your foster breeder application
- How Does One Become a Queen Elizabeth Foster Parent ?
We do accept new people into our foster parent program from
time to time if they have an exceptional dog experience or aptitude to learn, and if they are
interested in joining with our carefully miniaturized
bloodlines. Excellent communication skills are required, as you will work within a foundation and frequent contact is needed. Some buyers of Queen Elizabeth puppies plan to
breed from the onset and we help them select appropriate
mates.We work together as a foundation to produce the
smallest beagles in the world. We also breed Pocket Bears which are miniature mastiffs. Every breeding is planned and
evaluated to get the best results.
Our breeders are such a nice group of people. They find it
very satisfying to have a hand in creating this new breed of
dog. We all contribute to the expense of marketing of the
puppies through the Foundation's website
www.queensbeagle.com and multiple advertising sites. 5% of all sales are donated to Get-A-Wag for special needs children. This is shared equally by foundation and breeder. The
Foundation markets the pups and manages the sales. Part of
the puppy profits are reinvested in buying new dogs to
improve conformation. So we operate on a percentage
basis. 60% goes to the owner of the parent dogs, and 40%
returns to the foundation to cover all marketing,
reinvestment, and administrative wages. Your portion as a breeder will more than compensate for expenses raising your dogs and puppies. We give lots of
advice and guidance too if you are new at breeding. [Sometimes foundation owned dogs are placed with families and the percentage is reversed with 60% going back to the foundation, 40% remaining with the contract foundation breeder.]
- What kind of training and support does Queens Beagle offer?
What is your experience with animals and dogs? Have you
helped with births? Have you had animals before? I will share
my years of experience gained as a registered nurse (OB was
my specialty!), and breeder of a variety of farm animals as
well as twenty five years experience with breeding dogs. I will
be available by phone round the clock for emergencies if
something were to happen you needed advice for.
I can also direct you in the right way if you want to expand
and have more dogs to breed. You can develop your own
line for the Queen Elizabeth Pocket Beagle breed. The Queen
Elizabeth Pocket Breed Foundation markets your puppies and
keeps it's database and information for the registry. I can
help you arrange shipping by airline. And I remain an ongoing
support for emergency calls or general email questions for
your puppy buyers from that time forward.
As an affiliate breeder of Registered Queen Elizabeth Pocket
Beagles you will be continuing the work of re-creating the
miniature beagles that Queen Elizabeth I originally had. That
line was lost but the memory of it has endured through the
ages. Queen Elizabeth Pocket Beagles is now producing the
smallest breed of beagles in the world. The name is well-
known through years of consistent internet advertising.
Consumers are demanding more of our little dogs and willing
to pay a high price for them! Your support as a buyer of
puppies and future breeder will ensure that this line does not
die as Elizabeth's did, but will go on to find it's place
prominantly among the dog breeds in our world of the future.
- What are start up expenses to be a Queen Elizabeth Foster Parent--Breeder?
Aside from the initial purchase of your puppies, start up
expenses in breeding Queen Elizabeth Pocket Beagles are
minimal. They are easy to care for and the mothers usually
do the whole birthing process by themselves.
Biggest expense is dog food--I will help you stay away from
corn based foods that cause skin allergies/digestive problems
and choose the best nutrition for your dogs. I can help you
figure out cages, crates, exercise pens, and other aspects of
breeding. I will help you understand immunizations and
worming schedules and where to obtain medical supplies and
dog food reasonably.
- What kind of return investment will you get as a Queen Elizabeth Foster Parent--Breeder?
Our breeders work within this foundation because they truly care about the dog breed. Their greatest reward is in placing the sweet puppies they breed with their permenant families. If you want to be a Queen Elizabeth Pocket breeder, you will be
part of an affiliate breeding program and you will be able to
advertise on our trademarked website. A team of
administrative workers also advertise your pups on several paid classifieds on the web.
Our prices are based on a solid reputation we have built over the years. People
recognize the name and website and pay more for our puppies.
The Foundation will get 40% return and you will get 60% if you purchased your puppies initially.
Your puppy buyers would initially pay me through PayPal and
I would forward on your percentage to your PayPal account.
It is a cooperative commitment. You don't ship a puppy until
you have your money.
*For those inquiring about taking on Foundation adult
breeders, then the percentage will reverse with 40%* to you,
60%* returned to me in compensation for receiving your dogs
- How are Queen Elizabeth Pocket Beagles marketed for sale?
All Queen Elizabeth Pocket Beagle and Pocket Bear puppies
currently for sale are pictured on the breed Foundation's
www.queensbeagle.com website for easy comparison. They
are also advertised by the Foundation on numerous internet
advertising pet classified sites. They are consistently priced
according to size, sex, color, conformation, and age. We
strive to make Queen Elizabeth Pocket Beagles look like tiny
miniatures of the AKC Standard Beagle. All our puppies are
beautiful and pleasing their guardians as devoted pets.
The Foundation sets all precedents and serves as a unifying
force. It assures all breeders share the same high ideals in
reproduction. And it models a consistent code of ethics in
marketing as they manage all sales of the Queen Elizabeth
Pocket Beagle and Bear breeds. It also stands behind the
sales contract and health warranty to reassure the buyers of
puppies that their sale will complete as promised and that
they will receive a genetically sound dog.
- What is the role of the Queens Breed Foundation?
The Queen Elizabeth Pocket Beagle Foundation, operated by
it's founder Rebecca VanMeter, is very involved in its
organized network of individual breeders as a constant
support system. This Foundation serves as Matchmaker and
approves the matings, evaluating their results before planning
future breedings. The dedicated families that raise our beagle
and bear puppies share a single vision in how they go about
miniaturizing their pocket beagles to teacup sizes, developing
unique colors and coat patterns, while paying careful attention
to good genetic health and stable disposition.
The Queen Elizabeth Pocket Beagle Foundation believes we
improved on the breed, not just miniaturized it. It's what
people want today in a smaller dog.
- What if I am not able to get a kennel or fence does that rule us out?
No, it is easier to have the fenced yard but it won't rule you out. I just don't want our guardians to let their dog out into the backyard and expect it will be safe to stay around. Too much can happen....a stray rabbit or cat, or a blowing piece of trash can fly by and the dog you thought would not run off is off like a shot. Please keep it on a lead of some kind if you don't have a fence.
Here's a common technique that works: You can fasten a plastic covered cable to the bottom of the house next to the door and pick up the snap on end as you are putting your dog through the door to clip on his collar, fastening him to the house if you can't stay with him to potty.
Some people do the very safest method of making an indoor potty place and the dog doesn't have to be let out multiple times a day.
