I would be leery too (and was). I didn't really count on the protection from the first shots given (given at the breeder's) as I felt the pup was young enough that it might not have 'taken' (mother's immunity interfering). If you want to take your pup out, you might consider carrying it instead of putting it on the ground. It can still have exposure, without the danger.
