Fallout: New Vegas Dead Money Find Collar 8: "Dog"
This is one of the three quests given by Father Elijah right after entering the Sierra Madre resort. In these quests, you will have to recruit three other companions.
The first companion that you will have to find and convince to join you; is "Dog/God". In order to find him, you will have to get to the police station in the southwest of the Sierra Madre.
On your way to the police station, you may come across the Villa inhabitants; the ghost people. The only way to kill them is by chopping off one of their limbs with a melee weapon, so try to avoid them as much as possible at the beginning of the story.
Once you've made it inside the police station, you will find Dog stuck inside a cage.
Head down into the basement and find a way to free dog.
As soon as you head inside, God will start guiding you through the basement.
At some point, you will find a holotape on the desk, right next to a broken radio. God will instruct you to pick it up and tell you what to do with it.
After picking up the holotape, head back upstairs and play it in front of Dog's cell.
Playing the holotape in front of Dog's cage will bring out God from his 'cell'. At this point you can either choose to convince God or Dog to come along with you.
I'd recommend you to choose Dog just because his ability to devour Ghost People will help you make progress faster on the streets of Sierra Madre.
The quest will come to an end as soon as you convince God/Dog to open the cage and come with you.
