Hello everybody,
I am new to this forum and am wondering if anyone could help me out with some information. My husband and I are living on St Maarten, an island in the Caribbean. It's a lovely place to live but unfortunately has no reputable breeders. We are looking for a Golden Retriever puppy to join our family. On the island there is only one place for puppies and they get their puppies from a "puppy agent" in the US. We do not want to support puppy mills and are very concerned about getting a well bred, healthy puppy. Does anyone know reputable breeders that would not have a problem shipping a puppy on a direct flight to St Maarten. Thank you for your help.

I want to welcome you to the forum but unfortunately I don't have an answer to your question. Perhaps some of our Florida members can be of assistance.

Welcome to the forum,

Is there anyway you could fly to a breeder in Florida to meet them and the puppys? Then get your pick and fly back. There are several great breeders here in the state.

Sorry I'm pretty far from St. Maarten but I'll give the thread a bump in hopes that another Floridonian :))) could help you out! I'm happy to hear you will not support the puppy mills or "agency"! Good for you :)

IMO, I don't see why a breeder wouldn't ship on a direct flight to the island... many breeders ship all the way across Canada. It sounds like it would just be a matter of finding a breeder that you can trust and that will trust you too. A couple of long, detailed phone conversations or a visit in person may be required though.

Welcome to the forum.. St Maarten is a beautiful place. I just went there in February and happened to get engaged. lol so its a special place for me.
Some breeders will ship on a direct flight. It may cost you a bit to do it, but its worth looking into.
I noticed St Maarten has a lot of strays, and everyone kinda lets there dogs roam the island.. lol Most dogs looked like mixes that I saw..
Such a beautiful place though. I hope you find someone that will ship to you. Im sure your golden would have a wonderful time enjoying the warm water and beaches!
