2Dogmeat (Fallout 4)

Dogmeat is one of the best dogs in video games because he’s just such a good boy. This pawesome pet appears throughout the entire Fallout series but was most recently featured as the very first companion you get in Fallout 4. After having your son ruthlessly stolen from you while you’re frozen inside a vault, you need a pick-me-up – and a puppy companion is the next best thing to a child anyway… right?

Dogmeat is extra great because he fights enemies for you. And while he might die pretty quickly you just shoot him full of drugs and he’s back up on his feet again. Not to mention you can dress him up. No dog has looked cooler than Dogmeat with goggles and a sweet bandana.
