In the Dawnguard Fortress you will find a pen with two named ones.
Talking to them will let them be a follower, they also come with Armour. --- HOLY ****! What is this? Forged in Gods very flames! Do mine eyes tell me lies? A new Elder Scrolls game? Time is nigh, I must fly, Venture forth on my quest!
That's why I don't take them. I get attached and don't want them to die.
Dogmeat followed me straight to my house in Megaton, and he has lived there ever since.
I had FO3 on PS3 as the GOTY edition and Dogmeat was damn near invincible, so when I got the vanilla edition on Xbox I freaked out when he got shredded to pieces and reloaded. He now faithfully guards Vault 101. --- If I wore panties, I'd need to change them! ~VexNoFace
