Dear PetRelocation,

I'm buying a dog from Spain and she will be entering the USA through Canada. The dog has been microchipped and had her rabies shot administered, but now the person in Spain is telling me the dog can't be shipped until a second rabies is administered. Is this correct?

We knew we couldn't leave him behind, but knew very little about the process of relocating a dog to Europe... other than loosely understanding that Europe has or at least had quarantine requirements for pets.

We definitely didn't want to pursue the move if it wasn't going to work for Fargo. Early in the process we...
