Q. I just got my puppy about a month ago & I haven't took her to get any shots in not even sure how old she is but she's a baby shes pug & half pit bull

A. The first injection should be done at 8 weeks, the second vaccination is done at 10-12 weeks of age. You should also worm her with a puppy worming syrup or tablet - twice in two weeks interval.

It's not recommended taking her out until she is fully vaccinated because of the high risk of infectious diseases.
