ADOPTING A WAGGY PUPPY:
Your pup will have a first set of vaccines, and will come with paperwork with dates - He/she will need followup to be fully protected. Until then avoid exposing to other dogs that are not known to be healthy and vaccinated. Limit contact with the ground outside to potty training only, and wash feet afterwards.
With occasional exception, our animals are:
given basic vet exam and treated for any immediate needs
dewormed and examined for fleas and treated if necessary
given in-home behavior evaluation
