What Shots Should I Give Our New Purebred Pug Puppy if We Don’t Know Which Ones She Had?

I bought a pug puppy for my girlfriend last week but im not sure what shots she had so my question is, should we take her to the vet and have her get all the shots that she might need as if she had none? Would it be bad for her if she had some twice? She is like 2 months old and her name is Layla what do you recommend us to do?
Thank you in advance:

A reputable breeder would have given you all the information and paperwork you need.
It seems you bought the dog from a back yard breeder. You could contact them and ask if the dog has had any vaccinations or worming.
Chances are the breeder didn’t do either of these things and you need to take her to the vet.

All new pups should be seen by a vet within 48 hours of purchase for a health check.

    First of all, where did you get the pup? It should’ve come with at least first round of boosters at 2 months old. The breeder or whomever you bought her from should’ve given you all necessary vet documentation and a health guarantee. Looks like someone didn’t do their homework until AFTER they purchased the dog.

    Now on to the question, it will not hurt if she gets another round of shots as they are just boosters for the immune system. You can ask the vet to do a test; however, most vets agree that it will not be bad if the pup had another round. Boosters are usually given 6-8 wks (8 weeks usually for smaller breeds), 12wks, and 16 weeks. Then you have the Parvo, Bordetella, Kennel Cough and things of that nature. Some states require additional shots. Speak with your vet, he/she will decide which is best for the pup.

    My best guess would be when you take her to the vet inform that she may have had previous shots im sure they can figure out which shots shes had

    If you got her from a breeder she or he should have given you this information. The most she would have had at her age would be the first series of vaccinations, if she’s had any. They must have a series of four, generally started at 6 weeks and repeated at 9, 12, and 16 weeks. All should be completed by 16 weeks. These vaccinations are extremely important…please take her to the vet as soon as possible to get her started on them. Once mom has weaned they no longer have immunity to various life threatening diseases. Don’t let her around any strange animals until she has completed the full series. She’ll need her 1st rabies vac at 4 months.

    All of them. Kennel Cough, All the distemper combo’s, (There are three for puppies, and then a two series shot as an adult) Rabies, and I suggest getting it deformed, and put it on heart guard and front line plus.
