After the dog bites Dave Douglas, it is taken away to the shelter to be tested for rabies. The standard test for rabies (and the only one that could return such rapid results) is the direct fluorescent antibody test, which is performed on a sample of the animal's brain tissue. Typically, the animal's brain or entire head is removed and sent to a lab for testing. See more »
The Shaggy Dog actually was not as bad of a movie as I had supposed it would be. It was mildly entertaining, it keeps your attention. It is not very realistic, for example when Tim Allen's character is chasing the cat and rams the old lady and she goes flying and hits a tree. The scenes after becoming the "shaggy dog" when he turns back to human, it is all very funny through out there until the end of the movie. Tim Allen's performance is quite original in this one, it also was better than I hoped.
The first twenty minutes of the movie are very slow and boring, the movie rises up after he gets bitten and turns into the dog. Overall it was not such a terrible movie. It is a great movie to watch with your kids or family and friends. Go and enjoy the Shaggy Dog Overall 6 1/2 out of 10.
