Default bringing a pug dog to oz

Hi all!
I've been a lurker for a while, learnt a lot from this site about the moving process

I'm an aussie, but been living in Europe (currently London) for the past 6 years, and want to go back to oz for a few years, to introduce my dutch partner to the oz lifestyle

Problem is, that we have a sweet little pug dog here in London, that we want to bring to Sydney with us. Because of their squashed noses and apparent breathing difficulties, it seems that all airlines now refuse to fly them. Someone on this forum recently recommended Ryslip kennels, but they cannot deal with pugs anymore either.
Anyone out there currently also having problems sending over flat nosed dogs?

Cheers!

I thought I saw a post about this here a while ago... Think someone mentioned that Japanese Airlines were the only ones now that would fly the snub nosed dogs out... Might be wrong but have a search and see...

If they refuse to carry them then I am afraid as hard as it is....its for their own good.

I have a dog and would be gutted if we were parted....hes ma wee mate u see.....but if it came to it.....whatever was safe for him I would need to live with it

If you havent already done so, I would give Golden Arrow shippers a ring and ask for their advice. They are based in Shropshire, they dont have a website, but you could google them and their telephone number will come up. I found their advice extremely helpful when I brought my 2 king charles out here. They seem to know all there is to know!

Good luck

Evelyn, see my post from a few weeks ago re this, JAL have now placed an embargo on all Brachycephalic dogs, so that option is closed.

Sorry in a rush but will pm you further information later.

Regards

Afraid they can't.......we've got one, she was booked to fly June 18th.

Japanese Airlines banned them last Friday...with immediate effect.

NOPE:curse:

There are others on here - who I'm sure will chip into this string again - who know much, much more about the fine details. Basically only JAL shipped brachy dogs into Aus and now they've banned them.

The question of what we're going to do is a pretty complex one.....we only got this news on Monday and it's pretty much turned us upside-down. But not going is not an option.....we have to go....for so many different reasons...including the fact that there are 'humans' we're leaving behind who don't want us to go. We cannot now cancel everything because our dog can't go.

It's a really emotive subject...and different people have different opinions.

We're now just hoping that an alternative can be found. I've spent 3 nights looking for a solution but can't see any way at the moment.

I think it was something to do with their breathing - there was a discussion on it a while back. I'll try and find it for you.......................

..edit - that was easier than I thought -here you go -

Thanks for all your answers guys... yep, JAL airlines won't fly pugs anymore

But there must be a way, we really can't leave the little guy behind! Maybe by boat? My partner is actually willing to travel with the dog by boat (that's how crazy we are! hehe)

I suppose they don't have charter planes going to oz? If they did, I suppose that would be one very expensive way to get a dog across!

Been ringing around like mad to find out anything i can, i just get told the same.!....only that at this point in time she could be flown to new zeland , on new zeland airways for ninety days and stay with someone there or quarenteen would cost "£2,000 for 90 days,and fly her to sydney .........I think there will be some resolution as surely they earn money shipping dogs they charge a small fortune to fly them.

I am going to phone quantus and ask them if i can sign a disclamer to say be it on my head if something goes wrong, i am confident enough that she would be fine.They will probably tell me to clear off but why dont we all try.IT might make them think
