Puppy Pickup/Shipping

We are sorry, but at this time we do not ship sight-unseen. We request you drive (or fly) in to pick up your puppy in person.

If you choose to fly in we will meet at any one of the following airports for an additional cost to cover gas, kennel (if we purchase), health certificate, etc:

– Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport (
– Tri-Cities Regional Airport (
– Charlotte Douglas International Airport ( – less preferred.

Occasionally a transport can be arranged, or we may be able to meet at a show, however this option should not be relied on.
Should a transport be arranged, compensation is customary to driver, at Buyer’s expense.  Amount of compensation is between Buyer & Transporter.

 Flight plans are your responsibility.  Please keep in mind we are 3 hours from Charlotte Airport.

Suggested items to have on hand:
-Crate — No Puppy will leave here without a crate for transport; it’s safer that way.
-Disposable Pads (we use incontinence pads, larger than puppy pads)
-Paper Towels
-Pet Friendly Disinfectant (or wipes)
-Trash bag (Walmart bags are plentiful here & double as poop bags)
-Small travel bowl for water
-If the puppy is flying in cargo we suggest this bowl/sticker set: Kennel Travel Kit for Pets – Hook-On Dish & Live Animal Labels (Small)

We also suggest having (dog) probiotics on hand, this will help their digestive tract that might be upset by stress of travel.
