They have to be quarantined for something like 6months.
I've also heard it's very traumatic for the young animal, as they'll go through a long flight being in a small crate possibly without much in the way of food or water. Especially with a Chi, I wouldn't chance it. They need fed 3-4times a day when they're puppies and something frightening like a flight may traumatise them.

I wouldn't do it, but that's just me.

Keep looking, I didn't think i'd find my perfect Chi and I did eventually!
Stef could certainly say the same, she's now got her perfect little boy :D

Why don't you look for a breeder you like and then go on a waiting list?
That way you'll get what you really want, eventually. :)

Oops, forgot to say, it's also not such a good idea to buy a puppy from abroad because you can't get a good idea what the breeder is like.
The benefit of getting one from the UK is that you could most likely go visit the people and see their dogs and make sure they're living indoors, look healthy, are the right type of parents you'd want a puppy from etc.

I know it's disheartening when you're looking and there are only the £1000 puppies about, but just keep checking the websites and have a sift through the breeder lists and contact them about waiting lists and their prices. It'll be worth it :)
