A Red Dead Redemption 2 fan has taken to Reddit to request a very specific feature for the game.
Taking to the r/Reddeadredemption2 subreddit, a user by the name of CarpeDiem1783 shared the following image along with the title: “Please Rockstar, please! I will literally buy everyone who looks at this post a damn beer if you do this!”
The image reads: “We should be able to buy a wide variety of dogs with their own unique skills such as hunting for animals or bounty hunting either in online or story mode.”
Unfortunately for OP CarpeDiem1783, the post has nearly 6,000 upvotes at the time of writing, meaning if Rockstar actually adds this feature there’s going to be a LOT of beers to pay for. Lol.
“I don’t even care if the dogs are cosmetic only, I just want Arthur to have a dog,” commented one user.
Another added: “[Arthur] goes on about his old dog all the time! He needs a new good boah.”
“To be honest I really thought this was going to happen at some point during the story,” commented another RDR2 fan. “I was kind of sad when Arthur didn’t pick up a random socialized but stray dog on his travels that somehow always finds his way back to him.”
Although dogs are present in Red Dead Redemption 2, you’re limited to petting them (or killing them, if you’re just a terrible person who wants to go to Hell).
Unfortunately, Rockstar has yet to comment on the possibility of having a dog companion on your adventures. It’s probably pretty unlikely to be added into the main storyline of RDR2, but implementing it into Red Dead Online might be doable…
Would you like to have a pet dog in Red Dead Redemption 2?
