This was my first shipment with Uship and I shipped a rescue dog from Austin Tx To Aurora Colorado. We had a tight schedule as owner was leaving the state and we had to get her shipped before a certain date. Dale3042 bid on the run and I accepted as he bid my target price and could fufill the dates needed. Dale3042 also saw I was shipping another rescue from Ft Worth Tx to Bellingham Wa and bid that run also. I was thrilled as he picked up the first one then went to Ft Worth and picked up the 2nd one,,both were not small dogs and a breed he did not know,Anatolian Shepherds. One pup at 50 lbs and adult at 90 lbs. He did not have to crate they rode in truck with him which made the trip stress free for the dogs,,not so sure if stress free for Dale though! The adopter of the adult said they appeared to have bonded on the trip since as he drove off she was watching him leave like he was an old friend. I will be utilizing uship.com for as many rescue transports as I possibly can now. Before we had to rely on voulenteers to fill runs sometimes changing hands 8 to 10 times to go 1000 miles.This is honestly a dream come true for rescue dogs and I am spreading the word to other groups and even breeders who usually have to fly puppies. Thank you Dale and Uship!
