    Default Shipping a dog

    Hello,

    My Wife, Daughter, and I will be relocating to Dominican republic in August. We have a 13 week old puppy. In June United changed is policy to no longer ship certain breeds on dogs. Delta and Jetblue have the same restrictions. I even considered Canadian companies, but no luck. My dog is and pitbull/bullmastif mix.

    Does anybody know how I can get my dog down to DR
    Thank in Advance,

    Tom

    might be a worthwhile to check if she /he can be classified as a service dog

    The breed plus the heat restrictions.... double trouble.

    I always do it in Nov/Dec to avoid the heat.

    WestJet in Canada is the best - IMO
    But after Dec 1 - as I remember

    If interested.. I saw Bandogs on the Corotos website... all mastiffs

    I have one from Canada
    50% Cane Corso, 25% each Am Buldog/Boxer

    The mother was the Boxer mix.... 100lbs

    My boy is 130-140 lbs.... no need to lock the gate
    THe Cane Corso fought w/ the Romans

    Check Air Canada too. Heat restriction might be an issue for August but maybe someone could keep him for a few months?

    ...Don sounds like the problem a girl friend of mine has....she is very persistant to bring one of those huskies from Minnesota to the DR,you know the big black and white one, at least 25% timber wolf, the more I tell her to forget it, the more she wants one....I had one in northern Mn., In the winter it would sleep in the snow...never work here in this heat.........Doc......

    Get a vet to say it is another breed? Others have done it and it has
    Worked for them. I am sorry they are banned. Bull%^*#!!
