I had what was a difficult situation in that my 16 year old son ran away from home with his dog Otis and a friend. They ended up in Iowa at his friend's Grandmothers home and after speaking to the Grandmother it was clear my son and Otis were in a safe place so I decided to leave them there until my son realized he missed home.The dog was a year old and although it was officially my son's dog every one in the family loved him. After being gone 2 months my son wanted to come home and there was no way we would leave the dog behind. I was unable to have the dog flown home on the same flight as my son because of the heat and the time of the year. Dogs can not be flown in baggage to Florida before mid to late September. It was too costly to fly the dog home on a cargo flight. They wanted a minimum of $500. I didn't know what to do so I just put the request out to the internet and stumbled upon UShip.... Candy the service provider was great! When I explained my story she was very accommodating and made it much affordable for me to be able to bring Otis home. My son got home on a Monday and the dog was picked up the next day and home 5 days after that. I just want to say I am not really an animal lover nor very savvy on the internet but everything worked out great!! I am extremely happy to have both my son and the dog home. I would definitely use UShip again!!!
