Melinda, there are certain breeds that are more suseptible to the parvo virus such as rotties and chocolate labs. It has something to do with their stomach lining if I remember correctly. These breeds are very volunerable to the virus.
In essense, no dog is safe from the virus.

I know alot of people are against vaccinating their dogs yearly, but this is one vaccine I absolutely insist on for my pack.

I know when I was a child I was vaccinated against measles. Since that time I have had 2 instances of the outbreak. I really think it depends on the immune system of the individual which dictates whether or not they are more suspectible or not.
