Since it was a double transport that involved a young pup, it was recommended that I at least have a crate for one of them (younger). Also, being the first transport in the new vehicle we didn't want to be totally destroyed this time around. So I took some time off of work on Friday to see if I could find some portable carriers to go into the back of the BUV. I normally don't crate when I transport but took their advice this time around. But didn't want to spend a ton of money on the carries. I was able to find these really nice portable light weight carriers at Meier's for under $20.00. I got the size that will hold a 50 pound dog and two of them fit in the back of BUV very nicely. Even though we didn't use one for the older basset.

Our new transport carriers. You can see George is going into inspect his and Fred is already caged and ready to roll.
Fred wasn't to pleased with this idea, but did very well besides telling us his life story for the hour drive to Bloomington.
This is George a 5 year old male that was being transported to a different foster home. Very laid back and just didn't seem to know what was going on.
This is Fred a 7 month old puppy that was left at the shelter in St. Louis. Fred was the sweetest, happiest puppy and I will not for the live of me understand how someone can purchase a puppy (fully registered with papers) to only have for at least 4 months then leave it at a HIGH KILL SHELTER. Why not contact the breeder to see if they want him back, why not try to find him a good him home, why not try to find a breed specific rescue, why not just keep him and love him like you promised him on the day you brought him home. WHY is all he ASKS??
He was being treated for skin infection so he had a terrible bare spot on his back
He just wants to run and play
