    DefaultThe neighbors lab!

    She is outside because she is deadly afraid to come into the house. No one knows why she is owned by a couple who runs a church down my road. They want her to be indoors but she is so scared she wil not go near the door.

    I can get a better pic if needed!

    I think I need a better picture. Why is his head so small looking in the picture. I'm going to post a link from pitbul-chat.com that addresses overing fear. It is meant for all dogs

    if a dog has lived in one situation its whole life, it may be afraid of ANY environmental change, even one that we would think would be 'better'. Rehabbing puppy mill dogs, to use one classic example, is a very slow, gradual process and can't be rushed.
    Doorways, in particular, are often issues for unsocialised/fearful dogs.

    How old is the dog? Has it ever lived inside?
