You've decided on the perfect dog breed for your family, but there aren't any puppies locally. Luckily, you searched puppyfind.com and found a breeder with a litter of puppies. You've talked to the breeder and are very comfortable with his or her philosophy and the photos of the puppies. However, you are not interested in driving halfway across the country to pick the new puppy up. Before you make the final commitment to buy your new family member, you need to know the cost to ship a puppy. The answer to this question is based on several factors, including breeder policies. Some breeders include the extra fees associated with shipping in the price of the puppy. Others will expect to have you pay for them.
