My daughter found a Chihuahua puppy on the internet and her fiance wanted to get it for her birthday. But, we would have had to drive about 6 hours one way from Washington to Southern Oregon. A friend told us to check with UShip.com.. I did that and it was so easy to get things set up.. We found a fantastic shipper who had experience with shipping animals.. I'm so glad we did this.. It was well worth it..
