1-3 Hours.

I am fortunate enough to have a highly titled import (Germany and Czech) breeder close by (within' 3 hours) and where we got our last puppy. Can't beat that.

I got Bear from a breeder in Colorado that was about a 50 minute drive. I was lucky, I got to visit Bear every week from the time he was 4 weeks old.

FAITH: Flew from Pennsylvania to Ft. Lauderdale, FL (I had to drive about 4 hours one way to pick her up at the airport down there).
BRUISER: Drove 55 miles one way to Palatka, FL.
SLIDER: Drove 620 miles one way to Branson, MS.
MAC: Flew from Houston, TX to Orlando, FL (I drove about 75 miles one way to pick him up at the airport).

OOPS!!! Just reread the instructions!!!

I purchased SLIDER from his breeder.
I got BRUISER for stud service payment.

I'm 2 hours away from my pup's home one way.
I'm lucky enough to be great friends with the daughter of the family so I can stay over the weekend and play with the puppies until they are able to come home.

Panther came from Germany (alten Wingertshaus) - previous purchased dogs came from Belgium and Germany...most of mine have been homebreds
