There is a possibility I can help out with this transport. I am going from Pensacola, FL to Romulus, NY on September 22, 2013. I am going to a dog show and would have two other dogs with me. I would need to be sure the dog is healthy, dog friendly, a good traveler and flea free for the trip. Sorry to be picky but I can't have my dogs get fleas/sick on the way to the National Specialty.
