ADDITIONAL COMMENTS OR CONCERNS:


WHEN SHIPPING A PUPPY, WEATHER CONDITIONS, FLIGHT DURATION AND CONNECTIONS ALL PLAY A PART IN WHEN WE CAN SHIP A PUPPY. DOGS ARE NOT BAGGAGE. AIR TRAVEL SHOULD BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY! EXPOSURE TO EXCESSIVE TEMPERATURES WILL BE AVOIDED AT ALL COST (WORK AND PERSONAL SCHEDULES INCLUDED) IF YOU PURCHASE ONE OF OUR DOGS, ARE YOU PREPARED TO MAKE LAST MINUTE CHANGES IN WORK AND PERSONAL SCHEDULES TO ALLOW PICK UP AT THE AIRPORT AT A TIME THAT IS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE PUPPY?_______
