My dear trainer friend is fostering a German Shepherd rescue with papers for me.  I am so excited.  She was working with the owner to train this pup when the owner was diagnosed with a serious illness and the owner's wife was unable to take care of the pup and her husband, so I am trying to get this sweet boy down here to my home.  He is in Michigan and I am in Florida.  I would welcome any suggestions.  Thank you all in advance.

Don't know about here in the East, but on the West Coast, we can usually reach out to the GSD rescue in the area and see if it is possible for them to pull or intake and help transport. Good luck.

Best Friends has a list of transport groups and services:
Congrats on your pup!

I have checked out Reliable and Best Friends, they both say it is an at-your-own-risk since they are volunteers that transport the animals and Quint may get as many transporters as there are states if not more.  I will continue checking and thank you

Why not just put him on a plane How old and how big just can't be that costly for you.

Very easy on the pup and sure is fast. I would trust the proper airline more than several strangers and no telling how many stay overs.

Then all the chance of getting hurt or picking up some bug and bringing it to your home.

Do you not want the pup to fly for some reason

I checked into airlines and it is rather expensive along with the cost of the airline crate which is more than I paid for his good quality wire crate.  So far the least expensive is $875

Try Uship. They will bid on the shipping. Also check on horse transporting companies. Or even someone hauling to a horse show in your area. I have heard of people hauling a pet if they have the room.

Good luck.

I may have misunderstood your post, but Reliable Animal Transport aren't volunteers. It was $350 to get a dog from south FL to VA.

Here is their number in case you may have contacted the wrong group- (904) 540-8649
