This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Now you can have Dogmeat from the video-game Fallout 3 follow your sim around! You had him as a companion during your travels in the Capital Wasteland, but now he's ready to settle down and just become a regular pet.

Dogmeat's Personality Traits:
  • Adventurous
  • Loyal
  • Hunter

It took me about 2 days total (I was on and off) to finish him. I made him as detailed as possible, but you'll easily notice his imperfections because eventually I ran out of options to create new layers... T_T; ANYWAYS, this is my first MTS submission, so I hope you'll enjoy! Please leave feedback and comments for my own future references. ^__^

UPDATE 11-2-2011
I added a mini puppy version of Dogmeat since someone mentioned the Puppies! perk from the game. I thought it would be nice to literally have a pup version of him. However the pup will not look 100% like the real Dogmeat when fully grown, but it'll look close enough... He's not supposed to be a replacement for the real Dogmeat though, just something cute I thought I should add just for the heck of it. (:

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

The puppy will be in the unsorted bin. Since its a puppy it won't show up in the sorted dog bin (hope this helps)

Thanks for this...i loooove Dogmeat! Can't wait to get him in game.
I don't have a 'Saved Sims' folder though. I've just done a clean install though, so is it cause i've not actually saved any sims yet do you think?

I know this is stupid, but for the life of me I can't find him in the game. How do I find him and get him into my home?

Now all we need is a vault suit and that apocalypse set, maybe some sci-fi metal textures for basement building, and we're good to go. Wonder how hard it would be to build a vault .......

Edit: I mean, with the proper signage, textures, railings, lockers, vault guard outfits and everything.
