Shipping puppy to US

My friend who raises GR is offering me a free GR puppy but he lives in Puerto Rico and I live in Orlando, Anyone know how to handle shipping to Orlando? I know airlines will fly puppies but not sure how to go about the whole thing. Any advice is appreciated.

You might be in luck because PR is part of the US. When we went there we did not have to have passports and I don't think we had to go through customs.

Can you fly over and bring the puppy back with you in the cabin? Certainly the safest way.

The airlines usually have heat restrictions, which could be difficult in Orlando, depending when you are getting the puppy.
