Dogmeat is the dog companion in Fallout 4. He’s a German Shepherd you can meet shortly after you start the game, and he’s one of the more valuable allies. This guide will show you where to find Dogmeat, how to use him in battle, his abilities and perks and how to increase his affection.
- Name: Dogmeat
- Type: Animal
- Location: Red Rocket Gas Station
- Quest: No
- Romance: No
- Perk: None
Dogmeat’s LocationHe can be found a short while after you start playing. When you leave Sanctuary Hills, go south-east and you’ll bump into a Red Rocket gas station. The dog will be sniffing around the gas pumps. He doesn’t have a quest tied to him.
Abilities & PerksAbilities: As with all melee fighters, his greatest strength is that he doesn’t miss often. He also acts as a tank, attracting the attention of enemies more easily.
Perk: None. There is a perk in your perks list that affects him, though – Attack Dog. He also doesn’t count as a companion in regards to the Lone Wanderer perk, so you can have your cake and eat it there (thanks Disconnected!).
