I don't remember if you said when you are wanting this all to happen, they won't let small planes go up right now as we got hit with a crazy amount of snow, so let me know some more of the plans when you get a sec.

  I'm in Maine, about 15 minutes from the Portland Airport. I might be able to help if you could get him to there. Unfortunately I don't think the Cat ferry is running from Portland to Halifax this time of year but I could probably drive him as far as maybe Moncton,NB.

Thanks I'll see if that is a possibility. Moncton super close to Halifax. I'll have to check on dates. Thanks so much  ;D
I'll know more when I get to work, then I'll be making calls.

Don't know if this is still needed, but maybe somebody else will need it eventually.  I wish I could help in some way, but I am in upstate NY :(

Westjet flies dogs.One of my friends shipped a dog from Halifax to Hamilton recently for breeding. Doesn't help with the US end, only the Canadian. I also would try an arrange someone to make sure the dog changes planes OK. I am not a big truster of the airlines. Another friend was telling me that Air Canada baggage compartments are not heated, she had to sign a waiver went shipping a dog recently.

Harley just flew Westjet. They are great. That was my original plan but the pet embargoe for them starts On Dec 12 and does not end until Jan 11.  :-\ AirCanada's is from Dec 19 to Jan 6. But it scares me that it is not heated. If I end up going with them I'll have to make sure that there is a big blanket with him.

the dog'll be fine on the plane my mums jack russel had 11 hours of flying when i brought him over and he was fine.
the only problem we had was that when he landed for the last time as the people were getting him out he cocked his leg and managed to pee on the porters leg lol

WOOOHOOO we have transport all set up! We are having Ash flown to Maine and Michael (mjjensen) has has offered the most wonderful thing ever! He is going to drive him Moncton New Bruswick. We are going to meet him there. So we get to bring Ash home on December 28. I am so happy!  ;D Thank you to everyone for all the help.  ;D

I'm glad that you got everything worked out.  Can't wait to see pics of his homecoming.  I know you are super excited.
