This happens constantly. Thousands upon thousands of dogs are shipped north, because there are so many more ‘unwanted’ dogs in the south. We recently did a story on a group that transports ~260 dogs from Georgia to New Jersey every 4 weeks, and they’ve been doing it for 10 years.

We have a rescue group in our area that brings up a van load of dogs from TX every couple of weeks, it’s crazy how many strays they have down there
