Puppy's New Home

Hi Ronda,
  We named our puppy Diamond and she is doing very well with the family. You did an excellent job selecting her for us. She likes to cuddle and is very tolerant of the kids. She is a little nippy but I guess puppies just nip a lot and we have a trainer coming in to help us with that -- but if you have any tips, we'll take them.
  My 9-year-old likes to brush Diamond and she seems like it too. Funny, I can't get him to automatically comb his own hair but he makes sure the dog is brushed.
  I attached a photo of Diamond hanging out with my 4-yea-old. She is a very sweet dog. She's been to the vet and the vet was surprised by her calm demeanor.
  Thank you so much for delivering such a wonderful pup.

Have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year!

The first year is always more envexsipe b/c they receive a series of vaccines to initially boost immunity.They will then only receive vaccines annually. Disptemper combo is given annually, the 2nd Rabies vaccine is then good for 3 years, Bordetella should be given every 6 months, but some Vet's do it once per year.Don't forget about monthly heart worm preventive and annual heart worm testing as well and flea and tick prevention.But yes, once you get past the first year with the series vaccinations, it's a bit cheaper.If I were you, I'd skip the insurance and put that money into a saving account of your own to cover annual stuff as well as to have money if he ever becomes ill.

Animal shelters take in aimnals with widely varying backgrounds, some of whom have not been previously vaccinated. Inevitably, despite the best efforts of shelter workers, viruses can be spread and may occasionally go home with adopted aimnals. If you already have dogs or cats at home, make sure they are up-to-date on their shots and in good general health before introducing your new pet dog. Take your new dog to the veterinarian within a week after adoption. There, he will receive a health check and any needed vaccinations. If your dog has not been spayed or neutered, make that appointment! There are already far too many homeless puppies and dogs; don't let your new pet add to the problem. Most likely, the shelter will require that you have your pet spayed or neutered anyway. If you need more information about why it is so important to spay or neuter your dog, read our online information on spaying and neutering.
