| ||關於the schizophrenic F.E.V. mutant and possible companion from Dead Money，參見Dog and God。|
In the Fallout world, dogs are little different from the ones found in our world, though many have become feral and vicious in order to survive in the harsh environment of the Wasteland. Even so, just as they have in ages past, many dogs have remained faithful and beloved companions to men and women. Inarguably, the most famous of these post-nuclear canines was Dogmeat, the companion of the Vault Dweller.
Though most breeds of dogs remain largely un-mutated by radiation exposure, some modified or mutant varieties do exist. The centaurs are mutants created by mixing dog, human and brahmin DNA in FEV vats. Dogs were also subject to Enclave experiments, which resulted in cyberdogs.
Regular dogs with standard statistics and characteristics but no special attributes.
Legion mongrels are dogs owned and bred by the Houndmasters of Caesar's Legion. Mongrels are mainly used in combat and scouting missions by the Legion. Because of their thick, shaggy hair (as seen on the picture) and their red-colored eyes, they are of a distinctly different breed than most dogs found in games.
Vicious dogs are a nearly hairless and apparently, partially ghoulified species of wasteland canine with a close similarity to Pitbulls. Ruthless survivors of the wastes, these starving, irradiated mutts will attack anything that moves.
