Sometimes. If you chose the human noble you get him from the get-go.

Started my second playthrough last night. An elvin mage. I think I might call my next dog: Neuticles.

Yeah, yeah.. human beings get no respect in fantasy RPGs. I played a human noble rogue, and I enjoyed the heck out of it. It was FUN.

I did play human mage, but, in my head anyway, canon had been set to my human female Cousland. I played human male mage in DA2 and had a complete blast, however. More fun than the rogue female that time around.

The dog is really affective at killing Flemeth. Most of her tail swipes and such miss him

@the people saying "noble":
Well, yeah, I guess, if you really _wanted_ to go that route, though why you would, I don't know...

Actually, I've never played the human noble route. So far, just City Elf and (human) Mage. But it still stands that five out of six Heroes of Ferelden don't get a dog until after they pick up a royal bastard.

Not if you're a human noble!

edit: I should really read to the end of a thread before I post...

Not if you play a Cousland human. You will have the dog in your first combat in Highever, and he accompanies you and Duncan to Ostagar, where you meet Alistair.

Edit: I believe my dog's name was Angus for my first playthrough. Subsequent games I picked random things like Stay, Cat, Fluffy, Bogus, etc.

I was more referring to the fact that once you have more than 3 other characters, he is pretty much useless.

besides which, that actually depends on the class. you get the dog before you get alistair if you play as a human noble.

...but you get Alistair before you get the dog.

he's useful at the beginning of the game as a tank, but once you have alistair and/or sten, the dog is fairly useless.

"My character's name was Olaf, and he was a beserker." not Guts?

anyway, on one playthrough i named my dog Togg. after the Wolf God of War and Winter from steven erikson's Malazan series. on another i named the dog cerberus.

Kuro~tan. My characters name was Caid.

Well there's one thing he can do that's massively useful. I don't remember what it's called in game, but the ability to knock down and pin an enemy while attacking--it's really useful for getting powerful humanoids out of the fray for a good period of time while doing pretty decent damage, as well. Though shapeshifters and rangers get the ability as well, depending on the shape they take/the animal companion they summon.

The dog's a pretty good secondary tank, as well.
