Some celebrities are followed by the paparazzi. Some celebrities get their faces on the cover of magazines. Some celebrities are not well known, but they are celebrities in their own circles. The celebrity I am writing about is Patti Staub. Patti Staub was born with BORN WITH THE BEAGLES.
Patti Staub was born in 1940 and slept with a beloved Beagle under her crib. During the war years in the 1940’s money was tight. Patti’s mom bred Beagles because it was an inexpensive hobby. Patti’s mother taught her how wonderful dogs, especially beagles, were. Patti officially bred her first litter at the age of four in 1944. Patti’s name was on all the paperwork, which her mother took care of.
Patti has bred 35 Champion Beagles. She had a beagle by the name of Lite-N-Lively who beat out about 300 other Beagles to become the winner of the National Specialty for this breed in 1992. Patti Staub was also the Director of the National Beagle Club from 1993 till 1998.
Patti estimates that she bred about 125 beagle puppies in her lifetime. She will tell you that a good breeder breeds for the love of the breed and nothing more. Patti is a celebrity to all of the families who have had the honor of raising and loving one of her beautiful dogs. She has made many families more happy than they ever expected.
Patti says that she will always take a dog back if the owner cannot keep it, or has a problem with the dog. She never wants one of her beloved hounds in a kennel. Patti is a celebrity in the world of Beagle breeding. She will always be a celebrity to me, because she sent me my beloved hound, Snoopy. I wish she would breed another 125 Beagles!
