I'm getting a doberman puppy in a little under 3 weeks, and I'm so excited! But my family has been looking after a friend's dog for a while, and he hasn't had yearly vaccinations. Would this be a problem? He's going to go home soon, but I've heard that parvovirus can live in the ground for up to 2 years. What can I do to protect my new puppy? Also, I quite frequently walk around the park in bare feet then come inside, so could this possibly bring parvovirus into the house? Can it live on carpets and floor?
Sorry for all the questions… I'm freaking out a bit!
