German Shepherd Saves Children From Fire!

German Shepherd Saves Children

In this Tuesday, April, 26, 2016 photo released by the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, Maxx the dog, with a bandage on his paw, recuperates from smoke inhalation after it helped fire fighters locate and rescue a 4-year-old boy and 2-year-old girl from a burning home Monday night in Longwood, Fla.

Another testimony as to how GREAT our dogs are!

2011 Jean Dodds Vaccination Protocol for Dogs


The following vaccine protocol is offered for those dogs where minimal vaccinations are advisable or desirable. The schedule is one I recommend and should not interpreted to mean that other protocols recommended by a veterinarian would be less satisfactory. It’s a matter of professional judgment and choice.

Age of Pups                                                  Vaccine Type

9 – 10 weeks                                                 Distemper + Parvovirus, MLV (e.g. Intervet Progard Puppy DPV)

14 weeks                                                       Same as above

16 -18 weeks (optional)                           Same as above (optional)

20 weeks or older,
if allowable by law                                    Rabies

1 year                                                            Distemper + Parvovirus, MLV

1 year                                                            Rabies, killed 3-year product (give 3-4 weeks apart from distemper/parvovirus booster)

Perform vaccine antibody titers for distemper and parvovirus every three years thereafter, or more often, if desired. Vaccinate for rabies virus according to the law, except where circumstances indicate that a written waiver needs to be obtained from the primary care veterinarian. In that case, a rabies antibody titer can also be performed to accompany the waiver request. See www
