White Shepherd Puppy help! 4 mos, Houston to Ft Smith AR

Postby lustya on Mon Jun 10, 2013 12:55 pm

We are trying to move this puppy to Kentucky from Houston, but I have an offer for part of the journey. If 2 pilots could get the puppy to Ft Smith Arkansas (northwest corner), I have someone that can get her the rest of the way to Kentucky! So, I am looking for a pilot to get her from Houston to Ft Smith this coming Saturday, June 15th.

Passenger: Kris
Breed: White German Shepherd
Age: 4 mos
Sex: Female
Altered: No, not yet
Size/Weight: ~20 lbs
UTD Shots: had first round only, will get the rest in foster care
Overall Health: Great
Housebroken: Not exactly, it’s a puppy
Get along with Dogs: Yes
Get along with Cats: unknown
Good with men/women/children: Yes
Any Behavior problems: No
Crate Required: No, but suggested just because she is a pup. She rides well so far, but may not sit still for the long day.
Other Comments: We are flexible as to how to get this puppy to the Louisville KY area so if you have suggestions, please advise!
Items traveling with: health certificate, medical papers, food, collar and leash

I am the transport coordinator for Echo Dogs White Shepherd Rescue. Please help if you can!

I can do a Houston leg of this trip this coming weekend if someone is available to do an Arkansas leg. Maybe a transfer point around East Texas Regional (KGGG) or Fox Stephens Gilmer Municipal (KJXI)?

My range is about a 250 mile radius around Houston, Texas. Roughly that would include any field within an arc from Houma, LA (KHUM) to Monroe, LA (KMLU) to Paris, TX (KPRX) to Brady, TX (KBBD) to Carrizo Springs, TX (KCZT) to Brownsville, TX (KBRO).

CB-
Can you fly this on Saturday? I am changing the route to suit the drivers I've had offers from. I can't get a pilot to meet you in East Texas and fly north, but I have drivers that will! So, if you could fly this leg, Houston to Carthage, that would be perfect! Saturday morning.

Leg 1 by Air Houston TX to Carthage TX-4F2
166 nm, 1 hr 40 min
Leave 8:30 am CDT
Arrive 10:10 am CDT

Can you email me please so I can add you to my distribution as well? amylusty@comcast.net
Thank you!!!

We are all full on this run now and the puppy was driven to Texarkana today. The pilot that offered to fly from Houston (CB) isn't needed. I didn't hear back from you anyway, so we were lucky to find another plan today.
Thanks!

That's great news, Amy! I got back in town this afternoon, and just now returned from the hangar where my plane is repaired, primed, and ready to get in the wind!

Keep me in mind if you have future transport needs from / to the Houston area!

Amy, if you'll put the "DONE" stamp on the first post, the moderators will see it from the front page and archive the thread.
