You will generally need to arrange a (paid) private transport to transport a dog to yourself from a shelter. I do transport and no transport coordinator I know would move a dog to a private home. The transport coordinators I know will only move dogs to an approved rescue or sometimes an already approved rescue will have a long distance adoption where they may already have someone local who has done a home check, etc and in that case the rescue may themselves set up with a coordinator to transport the dog from the rescues foster home to the already approved adoption home.

I don't know anyone who would move a dog from a shelter to a private home, except paid private transports which can be pricey. The ones most people hear about are the volunteer rescue transports moving them from shelters to rescues.

This info is just for future reference in case you find another long distance adoption. As a rule of thumb, I would expect to drive to pick up the dog myself so use the distance you're willing and able to travel as your guide for searching for the perfect dog. Alternatively, you can work with rescues. Most won't do out of state or out of region adoptions due to issues getting home visits done and meeting the dog before adoption. But some I'm sure will.

Just for furture information-check the Internet-it's been awhile, but there were a lot of options listed the one time I was doing research-one was a system of semi-drivers but that was a little time consuming-research would give you time to see what is out there and get to know contacts.
