I was actually wondering if she was a Wolf Hybrid or had any Nordic breeding in her (Husky, Pomeranian, Malamute etc. think sled dogs). Because that could explain the whole "not eating" thing, some other breeds are know for this as well, and your vet might not be a "breed specific expert", which is why it is possible he didn't have a good answer for you.
IMO I could care less if a dog is a Pitt, Rot or Pomeranian.. everyone has a breed that suites them and is right for them (there isn't a perfect breed out there for everyone), BUT when helping with training (especially from online where we can't get a full feel for the dog), it does help to know what the breed is, because some breeds behave in a way that is special to that breed. For example the way you go about training a Golden Retriever is much different that how you train a Pomeranian... one is a more laid back while the other has a tendency to be dominante.... they can have similar training methods but for each breed it is tweaked a different way.
If you tell us the breed, you will probably have a bunch of people who have that breed or experience with it offer you suggestions also if she's a Pitt this board is very pro Bully breeds, you will more than likely get a lot of helpful responses to training those breeds, because we have a lot of Pitt/Pitt mix owners on this site.
It would also be helpful if you told us a little bit about the age, genders, if they are sterilized or not and the breeds of the other 2 dogs in your household. Along with how well they normally socialize with each other outside of the problems you have every 6 months.
It is very difficult to give out helpful advice without knowing the full story.
