Welcome

In the show ring and in the field, Chance 2 Ranch (C2R) strives for dual purpose Beagles: correct conformation and movement, wicked hunt and drive. Schedule a visit to meet our packs.

Our mission is to develop a line of Beagles with extreme desire to hunt, while maintaining the AKC Standard for conformation.  Not an easy task; many have tried and failed.  Our goals are to improve our breeding stock in both our hunt and show packs and to evaluate individuals based on DNA health testing and natural abilities. We are five years into our program and several generations of dogs later, and are getting closer to our ideal.  Along the way, we hope to provide the quality pets that are intelligent, kind, and easy to train. You will know a C2R dog when you see it and meet it.
