I said to the owner/rescuer "Uh, how can you be sure that the puppy is safe, won't get sick?" Her response was that the puppy was vaccinated. So I asked, how can you be sure the puppy wasn't under its dam's immunity at the time of vaccination? her response was that she knew the vaccines were good as she gave them herself.

Some things just aren't worth arguing about. The lady was totally wrong of course, the pup was in no way certain of being protected from things it could be vaccinated against, and that does not consider the things there are no vaccinations for.

The point is, some breeders/rescues give their own shots and are not all that knowledgeable.
Awe a 4 week up at the pet store! Really? The first question is why was it already away from the mom and needed up there? And what about its siblings? Poor little guy. Hopefully they find him a good loving home.

Right now of she was 7 weeks when we got her she ould be 10 weeks old. Im questioning the age we were told because she is still cutting a few baby teeth. Her ears stamd up all the way though. What are your opinions?
My pup got his first at 6 weeks, second 10 weeks, and will get his third at 14 weeks. The vet should be able to tell age by looking at his teeth. Cute pup though. Here is mine at 10 weeks if you want to compare.

warrior_mom2134 the first pic is her now at the supposed 10 weeks and the second is her when we got her at 7 weeks

Jax08 whoa.

8-12-16 weeks are traditional. New Dr. Dodds guidelines are 9-10 and 14 weeks.

Sounds like your girl is going to have to have extra shots.
