Except for a case of the heebie-jeebies, nothing. Ticks take hours to dig in to the skin where they drink blood and regurgitate harmful bacteria back into the skin. See the link below.

How should a tick be removed if one attatches itself to you?

Take a match and light it and or heat up a piece of metal, wait a second and blow it out. Very quickly touch the back of the tick. The heat will cause the tick to back out as far as it can. The head and or teeth of the tick will still be connected. You take your finger tip and thumb and squeeze the back and underside of the tick. Slowly pull it out, it takes a little work but it will come out.

The tics head didn't come out when i tried to pull it out of my dogs neck. i only got the body now what happens?

Not sure if the tick's head will cause a disease or infection. The best way to remove a tick without pulling on it is to put a drop of olive oil on the tick. The oil will cause the tick to pull its head out as it suffocates.
