    I didn't have my bully shipped but I did have a chihuahua shipped a few years ago and he did great. Health wise I'd be nervous to fly a bulldog but he's not going to be scarred or ruined from flying alone. For Bear, we met the breeder half way which was in Kentucky for us!

    The airlines keep the pets in a temperature controlled, pressurized area of the plane. Bulldogs can't fly if the temperature will be over ~ 70 degrees in any airport where they will stop along the way. Shipping is certainly not ideal, but it worked out beautifully for us and for Charley. His previous owner was keeping this precious puppy chained in the back yard or in the garage. The new wife didn't want a dog in her new upscale home. Charley now has a much better life.

    By the way, we weren't looking for a new bully yet since our Leiah had just recently passed. I had been thinking about rescue but WA bulldog rescue didn't consider us to be suitable bulldog owners since we don't have a fenced yard.

    Charley found us. My sister's neighbor was caring for him until the owner could find a new home for him. My sister just told me about this cutie and I knew right away that he was our Prince Charles-- Charley. I had dreamed we were having a male next. Then I did my homework-- talked to the breeder, the sire's owner and Charley's owner. Even had him checked out by a vet who had raised bullies.

    This was one of those "meant to be" experiences. I'm so thankful we put Charley on that plane. That said, it would not be my first choice!

    So, while I respect your opinions, but this was such a blessing for us.
