Can Mixed Breed Dogs Travel to New Zealand?

Thursday, August 18, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

Can I bring my dog to live with me in New Zealand? She is a boxer mix according to the animal shelter where I got her. We think she is a boxer bulldog mix, so would she be considered a hybrid species, which are not permitted?

I really want to move to New Zealand and would be devastated if I couldn't take her with me! She is microchipped and has all of her shots.

Thanks,

Gigi

 

Hi Gigi,
