An opportunity has presented itself where we may become parents to a new puppy. If all goes according to plan we would be bringing the dog home tomorrow night.
Some background info. The puppy is an 11 weeks old and does not have his rabies shot. The reason why we could potentially be welcoming this addition is his current parents are moving out of province and cannot bring him.
Tubby's vet is already closed for the night and they are closed on Sundays.
My only concern is without him having a rabies shot how big of a hazard does he pose to Tubby, myself and Tubby's dad?
Rabies shots aren't due until 16 weeks or older. I wouldn't be too concerned.
Thank you for the clarification.... sorry.... Lmbo @ stubborness, is it possible to pass more of that onto a Bully?? Really??? lol
I agree. This is perfect advice. Your puppy would have to be bitten by a wild animal or other animal that was carrying the rabies virus in order for him to get the rabies virus, so you and your family would be safe until he got his shot. Plus he's not quite old enough to get his vaccine yet.
LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
I'll keep my fingers crossed that all works out and you can give this puppy a good home!
"Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them and
filling an emptiness we didn't even know we had."
So I woke up this morning to the WORST news ever! The puppy's grand parents decided to keep him in the family. I am so heart broken I was really looking forward to making Tubby a big brother but if its not meant to be then it wasn't meant to be. Thank you though for the support
Disappointing, but there are tens of thousands of dogs (including many purebred puppies of all breeds) looking for a good home. So now that you have decided you could take on one more, its fun to look. I am always looking on pet finder for rescues that I could take (even though I know I really cant right now)...
