My girl was shipped to me. I recently made a trip to reunite and officially meet the breeder and it took us over 15 hours. Well worth it. I would not change a thing

Somewhere around 2000 miles - a bit more I think. I flew & brought the puppy back as my carry-on bag. Before that I drove 1000 + miles one way.

Halo was shipped from the East Coast to the West Coast, (Newark to San Francisco) and it was about an hour and a half round trip to the airport to pick her up.

Keefer was about a 2 hour plane trip (Portland Oregon to Oakland California) and then a half hour round trip to the airport to pick him up.

Dena (same breeder as Keefer) - we flew to Portland and rented a car, about a 10 hour drive home.

I drove 8 hrs or about 450 miles one way for Whiskey.
Wiva's breeder and my schutzhund club is 100 miles or 1.5 hours away.
Puddi is from the Humane Society 30 mins away.

About seven minutes from my breeder (if I take the freeway). Closer to 15 if I take the main roads.

Joey was about an hour and a half drive from me. The GSD breeders I am currently looking at are all about 2-10 hours away. The 2 top ones im looking at being 3 and 8 hours.
