1. Canine Disease Centre (CDC) is about RABIES effective August 15, 2014 states the puppies must be given a rabies vaccine at 12 weeks and the earliest puppies can enter the USA is 4 months unless there is a pre-approved Confinement Agreement issued by CDC.
2. USDA new rules - Puppies can not enter the USA before 6 months of age effective November 2014. Please read the following exemption which includes personal pets, etc.
This rule does not apply when there is no transfer of ownership or control of a dog to another person for more than de minimisconsideration after the dog's importation into the United States. Therefore, dogs imported by a person who will use the dog as a personal pet, for sport, for shows or competitions, or for breeding or semen collection are not subject to the 6-month age restriction or any other requirements of this rule. Additionally, we do not consider dogs imported for training as working dogs to be imported for purposes of resale. Thus, the rule will not apply to puppies imported by legitimate training organizations for the purpose of training the dog to be a working dog.
