The problem is if you are in the U.S. is that we are not rabies free and have significant reservoirs of the disease spead throughout our wildlife including species that are not unknown even in our urban area . Just a few are racoons (who will fight dogs even if not infected), skunks, foxes, bats...
So you are bringing in pups with no natural or inoculated immunity. The ag vet most likely is looking at the ease with which this animal can become a vector of the disease putting people and other animals at risk. That is part of his/her job to assess that risk.
Get the shot.
Even if allowed in without it most states have a requirement for it by 4 Mos of age and you will have to pay for a performance bond to admit the animal promising to inoculate it at the appropriate age and until then keep the animal unded quarantine conditions ( a headache waiting to happen and opens you up to whatever officious governmental entity chooses to get involved).

No doubt I will definitely get every vaccination including rabies once I have them, of course at the appropriate age as vet recommends. I just want to have a "dog broker" thats been through this process many times and can insure that "I DO" have everything in order.

Thank you very much... I’ll call tomorrow... I live in Mississippi but I’m sure I’ll end up driving to Dallas or Atlanta to pick them up.... I believe both those places are international airports that can be a direct flight from Slovakia, I’ll call her Tomorrow.

Agree with TIG - get the shots. If we export from the UK, a rabies-free country, we still send pups or adults off with the rabies injection; we may not have to, if exporting to another rabies-free zone, but that is not the case when sending to the USA.
Um, actually I do not understand why Slovakia can declare itself 'rabies free', since it is located in the body of Europe, and there are wolves and foxes and bats and feral dogs all over the Continent so that other European countries do NOT regard themselves as immune.
