Customer Question
We got a rescue half...
We got a rescue half sharpi and half pit at 8 months. She is now 11 months. A closer look at the paperwork from the vet indicated rabbies (killed). If this dog had rabies, can it truly be killed or should we be comcerned ? as we got this dog for our 7 year old son.
