 Present Perfect Simple and it's uses: 1.) Used for actions which happened at an unstated time in the past. Exact time is not mentioned because it is not important.

Who cares, time is not important here, only that the dog has been bought) 2.)For actions which started in the past and are still continuing in the present.
