Wanted, Yorkie In Shanghai
I want to buy a yorkie pup for my girlfriend as a surprise; but I am stationed in Shanghai now. So if anyone who can sell me a yorkie pup, and also handle shipping to China, please let me know...

Hi -- I don't have a Shanghai connection, but may I offer a couple of things to think about? I hope I'm understanding you correctly -- you want to ship from the US to China, right? First, you may want to check out what the import laws are concerning pets shipped from the US to China -- I know that in some countries you must quarantine a pet for up to six months before letting it come home. Also -- as I'm sure you know, Yorkies are very tiny and sometime fragile dogs, so shipping a dog on such a long trip will probably be very stressful and frightening to a young dog -- not to mention a potential risk to the dog's health. It's so sweet that you want to surprise your girlfriend with a little one -- but I suggest you do some research to avoid tragedy. Good luck!

Good points. Also wanted to add to be sure that the dog will be welcomed once the girlfriend is suprised.

hi i am currently in taiwan and i know the import laws are intense here .. and i can't even imagine going to shanghai. I would definitely look into this more and try to find breeders in china. I know there has to be some association or something over there...
and shipping from US to china, i would not suggest it at all .. that's like 14 hours (coming from CA).
but talk to the gf first, its a lot of time and effort involved especially with a puppy. i mean its a great surprise taht you're looking into this and considering it for her you know? she'll be totally excited that you thought of it, and it'd be a great bonding experience for the both of you to choose your puppy together.
and please don't buy from a pet store there .. its a lot more trouble than its worth, i swear! i have been there and done that. that's how i got my dog I didn't look into the groups enough before getting one. the pet stores in asia are absolutely terrible! i mean i have seen some pet stores taht have puppies that haven't even grown in their teeth yet!! it was so sad
feel free to pm me if you need anything.
