He needs to see all kinds of different people (different colors and genders, old and young, handicapped, tall and short, etc) dogs, other animals, and other sorts of things (loud trucks, balloons, sewage grates, etc)..
If this dog has any chance of biting or nipping anyone then yes the rabies shot is needed, for his own protection.
