We have recently acquired a Boston Terrier. It's our first dog, but we are amazed by her capacity to learn.
We have been told to keep her isolated until her third shot (she is getting V8, but I'm unsure if the vaccine name is not local only - we live in Brazil).
But I have read that the reason for the total of 3 shots are that there is no way to know when the protection from the mother will wear off, and until that the vaccine might not be effective.
If that is the case, is she not protected, either by her mothers mild or by the vaccine?
My main reason for asking is that it's a great pain to keep her isolated. For us, but mostly for her.
Additional information on the vaccine: It's for cinomosis, canine hepatite, adenovirus, parvovirus, canine parainfluenza, canine Coronavírus, leptospirosis and Leptospira Icterohaemorrhagiae. There are 2 main vaccines in Brazil, V8 and V10... We were told Boston Terriers didn't take the 10 very well
