Dog bite. Am I in danger?

I was bitten by a chihuahua at work. I work with animals and normally we require rabies vax for any dog that comes in, but in this case, we allowed the dog in without one. The owners had recently adopted the chihuahua from a stranger outside a Wal-mart. She had obviously been a breeder dog and abused. The dog bit my hand and left a few abrasions and maybe a slight puncture. I was vaccinated for tetanus five years ago, but am slightly worried about rabies. Should I be?
