I just got a new dog today (Jack Russell Terrier). She is a little over one year old and has never received any vaccines. She comes from a home that had four other dogs, the family couldn't take care of them all so they were offering to give her away for free, and I took her. I won't have a chance to get her vaccinated until later this week or early next week. Is it safe to have her in my house? If she licks my face (and happened to have rabies), can I get rabies or any other disease?

If she is licking your face I would be more concerned with worms. Also You might want to check to make sure she is flea free before coming into your home. Get her in to the vet for her vaccinations and worming as soon as you can. You shouldn't need to worry much about rabies for this week if she isn't acting strange. When you take her in to the vet take a stool sample with you so they can check for parasites.
