Guyjax sweet dog. I've had a huskey before but slip my mind that they get pretty big! And she'd too guess it's been a while. Guess I should look for smaller dog. Thanks everybody for the advice.

I love rescue dogs, it's like "they know" you rescued them. I don't believe in buying dogs there are too many puppy mills and overbred mothers out there...but I will not get on that subject...it makes my bp go up.

"Bail Money" ( in my profile pic) is a rescue. His size is going to be an issue I'm aware and I'm stressing because there was not enough research on size limits allowed on trucks. I'm stuck between a rock and hard place and trying to find some wiggle room. Hopefully there will be a happy ending to this story. We will see.

Jim palmer/Wil trans have no fees or size restrictions listed. Might wanna check just to be sure.

As far as bathing your dog there are some truck stops with a dog wash station. Petro exit 299 I-65 in Dodge City, AL comes to mind.

Agreed! Rescues are the best!

You save them and they save you!

Win - Win!

Usually, if you bring them in young and small, you aren't going to have any problems after you've established yourself as a dependable driver. Most places aren't going to let a profitable driver go because their dog grew bigger.

I've also noticed a lot of companies have restrictions for dogs/pets based on weight. Huskies get pretty big, relatively speaking. Might wanna double check on your company's weight limit for dogs, if they have any.
