Beef Necks

So I have found a couple of packages of beef necks in the frezer from a steer my parents bought and I am pretty sure they won't use them. Will they if anything be detrimental to my dog? If anything they might be able to be used as a treat, I looked at them and seem to be all bone with a little meat ...

Re: Can't trust a Dog

In all honesty I am just fed up with the unrealistic idea that she is fine from them, she isn't fine, if they leave she will almost eat through anything to get out, they left her outside one day for a few hours and she tore up 5 pieces of siding and the corner post of the garage trying to get out of...

Re: Can't trust a Dog

The worst thing is they say, if she ever does anything we will put her down, its too late then. The biggest problem that is going to come is that we are neighbors so its not like we don't see them a lot.

Did want to hijack the other thread but here is the situation, my parents have a 4 yr old female boxer who is very unpredictable and attacks other dogs without warning and has attacked my male pup a couple of times. I pretty much keep my dog up when their dog is around, but I feel very uncomfortable...
