I would definitely rule out any health issue as Julie suggests.

If it turns out that she is healthy and just stubborn...wel l, at 100 pounds you may have to get creative.

We had this trouble with Daisy not wanting to get out at the vet.  One look at the building and she would freeze....and sometimes poop in my car.  Regardless she wasn't about to get out and there was no way to move her.   142 lbs of stubborn mastiff.  Once the vet had to come out to the car and that's where Daisy had her appt.  It was to have her anal glands expressed.  In my new car. Ugh!   Now I park in such a way that she can't see the building until she is out of the car.  

But it sounds like maybe your dog wants to stay in the car in hopes of going somewhere.  

Sometimes a blanket underneath them can help because it gives you some leverage to move them toward the door.

If you have a gate/fence between where the dog rides and the driver you could loosen it and move it toward the opening so the dog has to get out.

I'd only try these more forceful options if I was sure she didn't have an injury or health issue.  

Best of luck!

Daisy is a Neapolitan but she is mahogany. I think Fang was blue or black.
She will be 2 yrs old in Jan. and currently weighs 137lbs.  She is going through an "I like to be rough" stage.   We are working on nipping it in the bud but it's a big bud to nip.  Ugh!
She's awesome.

Will you send me his dosages, what brand food and the amount you are feeding him per day?
Also his weight?

Thank you so much for your interest and help. 
Daisy thanks you too.

Daisy has been on so many different foods that the vet suggested some sort of kibble made from kangaroo in an effort to give her something that she hasn't been exposed to already.  She had a difficult time eating when she first came to us and then problems with her anal glands so we were trying to entice her to eat and bulk up her stools. 
Currently she is eating Wolf King. 

Did the vet test for systemic yeast?  I don't think so.  Would that be a blood test? 

Is she smelly?  Only if you brush her so that the skin flakes off.  Then she smells a bit like a really old dog might smell.

Did Jesse ever have problems with his skin?

I haven't been here in so long that it took me awhile to find the url.  
I hope I am still welcome.

Anyone having skin problems with their neo?
Daisy is on her third round of antibiotics & steroids in an attempt to clear up her reacurring skin problem. She has small lesions that result in hair loss and flaking skin. The vet has done scrapings to check for mites. All came back negative. We are currently doing a course of Revolution, 3 doses every 2 weeks, in the off chance that it is scabies. According to the vet the scabies mite can avoid the scrapings.
Next is a trial of food changes in search of a food allergy.
Any suggestions?

He's awfully cute.  I see neo in him...but maybe that's because I live with one.   Just like everyone else...I love the curly tail.   He's great.

She's beautiful!!!  Congrats!

She is beautiful!
Congratulation s.
Rescues make great additions. (all mine are shelter pups)
More pictures please!!!

I don't know this dog or his family.  I got an email from my SIL this afternoon explaining the situation.  The dog belonged to her husband's friend's family or something.  I had trouble following the connection.   

I did call the shelter to confirm that the dog is indeed there.   His name is Jackson.  He was dropped of this afternoon....3/16/06. His family lost their house. He had to be surrendered.  He is 2.5 yrs, fixed, good with kids, & other dogs. The lady at the shelter feels he will be easy to place but I thought I'd post here anyway.   

I wish I'd known sooner maybe we could have worked some of that BPO magic.  I've seen some amazing things happen on these boards.   

If nothing else....send some warm thoughts to poor Jackson.   I am sure he wonders where his family is tonight.

I am thinking about purchasing a dvd camcorder.
Can anyone suggest brands? options?


Welcome to BPO!

I'm Wendy.  I have a 7yr old Shepherd/Hound, a 5yr old rotti/mastiff & a 1 yr neo mastiff.  All rescue dogs.

You have a beautiful family and a beautiful dog!

I love to see more Neos on the board.
She looks GREAT!   How old is she? 

My Neo is 14 months old and still rather lean. 
She is so picky about eating.  She's curious about everything else other than what is in her bowl!
