Parvo Information?

I'm wanting to get a new puppy. She is a survivor of parvo, but my sister has a puppy also and he has only had his first shot. I'm worried about if the new puppy can give my sister's puppy parvo? The owners of the puppy I want say that she has had tests done and they were clean.

More information about false negatives:
"Can a dog test negative for parvo and have the disease?
Yes: These results are termed false negative results. They tend to occur for two main reasons:
- the disease process is very early. It takes time (about 4 days) for virus particles to replicate and to start shedding into the feces where they can be detected on parvo testing kits.
- the antibody response of the animal is very high. This tends to occur later in disease. If an animal does not die, infection with parvo will eventually result in a response from the immune system: the immune system will mobilise defensive cells and produce antibodies to try to kill the virus.

Many of these antibodies will remain in the bloodstream, but many will also be secreted into the intestinal tract (antibodies are one of the proteins that leak into the gut through the inflamed, ulcerated zones). These antibodies will bind to viral antigens in the feces and this can 'block' the antibodies in the parvo test kit from getting exposure to them. The result is a false negative."

Sorry, but tests can show a false negative if Parvo is low but still present.
It is not advisable to expose a puppy that doesn't yet have all its shots to any other dogs that may be carrying any illness. Since Parvo can be deadly, please don't take the chance. It isn't safe.
