  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Town Dog: "A loyal companion to many. Excitable and always ready for action."

The Dog is a pet. It arrives the following dawn (4:30 AM) after the player uses the Dog License, which is purchased from the Zoologist for 50000*5. The dog can be petted and used as an NPC for Pylons.

There are 6 breeds of dog, with one randomly being chosen when it arrives. If the dog is killed it will respawn within 1–3 days. Like the Angler, the dog's message upon reaching zero health is "<Dog's name> has left!". If killed, the Dog may spawn with a different skin.

The only requirements for the Dog are use of a Dog License and the presence of a valid House. The Dog's House can be changed, as with any other NPC, however the Dog can share the same House as another NPC.
