My father wants to get my DD a pitt for her birthday. They (father and his wife) have a few dogs, one being a pitt, and my DD has pretty much taken over her when we visit. shes obsessed with the dog. shes in love with the dog and visa versa.
We don't have any dogs so dads great idea...get her her own. and since i probably wouldnt consider it otherwise (im not a fan of paying a lot of money for a pet- id rather adopt, its cheaper and those dogs need homes too...), hes using the excuse that itd be a birthday present. Im not against the idea of a dog but i am curious what all we will have to do as far as shots and stuff. what would we need to be prepared to do when (and if i even agree to this) we get the dog?
The litter is only 3 and a half weeks old so itll still be a month or so before we get it. Since the person my father is buying the dog from is selling them, would that mean theres papers on the dog, and shots should be taken care of/up to date when we get the dog? Ive really never looked into this but i know my mom bought a yorkie and thats how it was for her but i just dont know what to expect. and yes ill be talking to my dad about this and asking for more details but if the dog "should" already be up to date on shots and stuff then i want to make sure thats something i require proof of before allowing him to buy the dog.
