both do. the nuance is that hoặc is restricted to whatever you explicitly list (so it seems rude to use it in a question)

In English, in the vast majority of situations I can think of where this sentence would be used it would be a question - not a statement, therefore I believe it should end with a question mark "?".

You know she has some kind of pet, but you're not sure what kind except you know it isn't something weird like a snake. I can see this being used.

Couldn't it also be "She has a cat or dog?"?
