It has been my dream since I was a girl to adopt a Golden retriever puppy. Now that we have our own house with a big garden, we would like to finally buy our first dog but there doesn't seem to be any Golden Retriever puppies available in Aruba at the moment.
I know there are many local rescue puppies that need a home, but I've waited my whole life to finally be in a place and time where we are settled enough to responsibly commit to adopting a dog and would love it to be a little Golden.
I'm wondering if anybody has any experience with buying a puppy from the US or the Netherlands and importing to Aruba? I've read somewhere that all dogs must have a special microchip, but isn't a 8-week old puppy too young for microchips? Also there are certain required vaccinations that can't be given to puppies yet...so does it mean we can only import adult dogs?
I'm grateful for any help or advice regarding this topic, thank you!
