It should be fine if the adult is fully to date on shots. I would not go out walking any place until the pup has at least 3 shots and a Rabi. Parvo is running rampid in US and a Rabi case in a kitten was told on news here last evening, it died and people with children dropped it off to the shelter, they were begging them to come in to be checked. You would hate to expose the puppy to these things too early.

I was told not to take my puppy to meet other dogs or out for a walk until he's had his 2nd set of injections incase some of them aren't up-to-date on injections. If you know you mum's dog is fine then I don't see a problem.

How old is your puppy?

Talking Information on Vaccination

Hi- here's a good blurb on Vaccination basics from a professional who wrote an article for the Whole Dog Journal. I copied and pasted the part about puppies...

“Core” vaccines for dogs
Dr. Schultz considers the following vaccines to be the “core” (or basic) vaccines that every dog should receive: canine distemper (CDV), canine parvovirus 2 (CPV-2), canine adenovirus 2 (CAV), and rabies. Core vaccines protect animals from severe, life-threatening diseases that have global distribution.

Puppies should not be vaccinated before five weeks of age because their immune systems are immature, and the presence of maternal antibodies can block the puppy’s immune system from responding appropriately. Ideally, in a nonshelter situation, the first puppy shots (CDV, CPV, CAV) should be given at eight to nine weeks of age. The rest of the series should be administered with a minimum of two weeks between doses, but preferably three to four weeks, to give the immune system time to properly respond. Thus, ideally, the next shots would be at 11 to 12 weeks, followed by the last at 14 to 16 weeks.

A series is necessary because we do not know at what point the maternal antibodies are low enough not to block the puppy’s immune response. Research shows that less than 50 percent of puppies will respond at six weeks; 75 percent at nine weeks; 90 percent at 12 weeks; and by 14 to16 weeks, close to 100 percent will respond. However, a titer can be checked two or more weeks after the last shot in the series to see whether the puppy’s immune system responded in the desired fashion.

After that, recommendations are to “boost” one year later, then vaccinate healthy dogs not more often than every three years thereafter, or better yet, run antibody titers. This, again, is a conservative approach from a veterinary standpoint as Dr. Schultz and other researchers have data showing that after the initial round of vaccines, most dogs will have immunity for life from CDV, CPV, and CAV.

Hope that helps a bit.. The more you learn about vaccinations the more aware you will be to make informed decisions..

One of my mother in laws litters got parvo when Charlie was a puppy (had all her shots, though) and she (my mother-in-law) didn't even want to step foot in MY house in case of tracking it on her shoes. Vaccines aren't guaranteed to protect your pup, always be on the safer side. Parvo kills quick.

Thanks for that "Spencer 2006" I was a bit confused because so many places say differnet ages for the vaccines.
