If you’re anything like me, you have wrapped or are just about to wrap up the beauty that is Red Dead Redemption II and while there are a plethora of side quests available in the game, I still had a few personal goals of my own. Goals like: achieving the 10/10 beard, having the deluxe bath in every saloon, and petting ALL the doggos in the game.
I believe I have now achieved doggo-patting completion and have since returned with my findings (and managed to avoid spoilers)! Here they are, in no particular order, and all called “boys” because everyone knows all doggos are boys, the 7 Most Pettable Dogs In Red Dead Redemption II:
The Happiest Doggo
When I happened upon this good boy at Emerald Ranch, he was enjoying a friendly game of “Chasing His Own Tail.” I called him over and proceeded to pat. He barked and wagged his tail. Very enjoyable. Would pet again. 8/10.
The Dirtiest Doggo
This dirty boy was rolling around in the mud in Lagras. Everything is covered in mud in Lagras. It also has alligators and they are also covered in mud. This is one brave doggo. Pat experience: A little squishy, cold, and wet but also included enthusiastic tail wags – so 7/10, I’ll wear gloves next time for a higher pat rating.
The Doggo Named Cain
This boy lives in my camp and belongs to Jack. He’s a nice boy and I enjoy petting him. There are tail wags to be had and he greets me with chocolatey barks. Will always pat. 8/10. Hmm, I don’t think I’ve seen him around today…
The Bestest Doggo
This is the best boy. He is one of two Australians at Emerald Ranch. He greets me enthusiastically every time I arrive to sell the goods that I stole off dead people (don’t worry – they’re only dead because I shot them). He begs for a pat and whines when I stand up. See how he looks into my eyes as I stroke him? That’s true love. Best doggo. 14/10. Will kill the Fence and kidnap eventually.
The Angriest Doggo
NONO! DOES NOT WANT TO BE PET! STAY AWAY! -118/10.
The Fanciest Doggo
This fancy boy was taking a poop when I found him. Then he rolled in it. I still gave him a pat, though. This pat was wiry and a bit stinky. He was calm and gave a little tail wag. Pleasant. Except for the poop. 6/10. Will pat again after a bath.
The Bald Doggo
This boy was at Wapiti. He had dry skin covered in scabs and most of his hair was gone. I think his name was Mangie or Mangee? Still deserved a pat, though! It was flaky. Wore gloves. Nice boy. 6/10. Will pet after washing in herbs that Rains Falls gave me.
Also at Wapiti. Wanted to pat him but he was busy steering the tent. Good doggo. Has nipples. Imaginary pat: 8/10.
Meowing Doggo and Tall Doggo
Tiny doggo stared at me and wouldn’t let me pat. 0/10. Tall doggo takes me places. Sometimes we run into trees. He still loves me. I give him carrots. 10/10. Will pet again, especially after the next time we fall off the edge of a cliff.
These are the most pettable doggos I’ve discovered thus far on my adventures. Have I missed one or even a few? Let us know in the comments so I can go pat them right away!
