Shipping is available in the U.S Only!

Hesitant on the thought of shipping? That is understandable, but I can assure you, I wouldn't put the puppies or dogs we sell in harms way. We have had most of our own breeding stock shipped to us from all over the country. I have plenty of experience with shipping dogs to customers as well as receiving dogs too. I've been on both sides.


Shipping is available to new owners that are located in the United States only. Shipping methods that are arranged by Salem's Finest is through United Pet Safe, Delta or American Airlines.  United Pet Safe is our initial choice when shipping. 


The charges are an additional $500.00 or more, depending on location and choice of airline to the airport you are needing, and is not included in the puppy price. This amount includes the ticket, travel in an air approved crate with water/food dishes, and a health certificate from the vet that ensures that the puppy is safe to travel. Puppy will have a blanket included in the crate and food. Shipping charges and puppy costs must be fully paid before the airline ticket is purchased and the puppy is scheduled to ship. Salem's Finest does not charge an additional cost for us to travel to the airport. We understand that shipping is expensive and we usually absorb the costs of travel so that you can have your puppy for the best price possible.

 You are responsible to pick up the puppy at the airport that it is delivered to you and then to notify Salem's Finest immediately to inform us that you have the puppy is in your possession. Puppies must be over 8 weeks before they can be shipped, or 10 weeks if under 2 lbs. More than one puppy can be shipped together for one shipping charge, but two puppies is the maximum and you will still have a fee of $150.00 for an additional health certificate for the second puppy. Please be advised that we do our best to get you your new puppy, but sometimes weather conditions can prevent a flight from taking off on time or may cancel an existing departure time that may have to be rescheduled. Salem's Finest will do their best to get you your puppy on time, but safety comes first.


Another shipping option is having you fly into the Portland International Airport (PDX) when your puppy is approximately 9 weeks of age. The fee for this service is $200.00 (includes health certificate and additional vet examination). (If no health certificate is needed, the fee is less)You are responsible to purchase your own round trip airline ticket with whichever airlines you desire, but make sure that they have pet allowances for the puppy(ies) to be able to ride in the cabin, usually underneath your seat, sometimes on your lap, but always in the pet carrier. Please also be aware that the airline that you fly with may have fees to have a pet fly with you. Always double check!!!
