  • I was just wondering if you could have 3 pets - a dog to stay at home, and the two pets brought home by the two children.

    • I've had two adopted girls for a long time but only one has ever bought home a pet but it does happen at random so i don't know its limited to only one or just the second hasn't triggered in all that time.

      I have asked in another thread if anyone actually knows of both kids bring home a pet each but there was never a reply.

    • Kinda. The person who answered only had one adopted child though.

    • I think it's becoming more and more evident it's 2 animals per household... but I'm just wondering if you can get 2 dogs or 2 "caught by children" animals - or one of each.. :/

    • I don't think anyones really knows its to hard to really test it, as i say with my two girls Sofie bought home Cotton very soon after adopting them but in all the time it took me to 100% Hearthfire and Dawguard and some messing around Lucia hasn't bought anything home.

      I do think you can only have one pet dog though but thats easy to test just go get Meeko and then hire Vigilance.

    • I think you can have 1 pet dog regardless of the amount of children you have. But each child you have can then have 1 of their own unique pets e.g. fox, skeever, mudcrab etc... So if you have 2 children, you can have a max of 3 animals in your house; 1 dog and 2 unique pets. I'm not sure though if the dog will follow them if you move house; I know the unique pets do.

      Your children can have two pets at a time.

    • Yeah from what I've been hearing from other places, you can have 1 dog for each of your kids, as well as each of those kids then bringing 1 more random pet with them. Neither of mine will bring any pet home though, getting very frustrating!!

    • My experience mirrors most of the above.

      Sophie brought home Cotton within a few days of adopting the child. Lucia has never brought home a pet, although she immediately asked to keep Meeko as soon as I arrived with him. I'll test more, since I haven't lost any animals followers to death.

    • If for example I have Vigilance following me, will my girls get 2 more for at home or is Vigilance included in the pets?

      Following you isn't the same as being a pet- they're officially a pet when your kids ask for the follower to stay with them and you say yes. If it's not a pet though, the dog won't permanently stay at your house when you ask them to wait. Each of your 2 children can adopt one follower dog from you, plus each one can bring 1 wild pet to the house in addition to their dog via random chance. Essentially, if you're lucky, you can have 2 dogs in the house plus 2 other wild animals like a fox or mud crab.

    • Do you know if your kids can find pets by themselves if you live in a city? Also, children never found pets in Heljarchen Hall ...

      It's completely random, as far as I know they should be able to find animals anywhere you choose to live, however it's possible that different locations have different chances of "giving" you different animals. E.g. House by the lake might have a better chance of finding a fox compared to a city home that might have a higher chance of finding a skeever.

    • I don't know about anyone else but I managed to get two dogs. One being Meeko and the other being the dog at the Markarth Stables. Also, Alvor, the blacksmith in Riverwood, and his wife died so I adopted Dorthe, she brought in a rabbit. Does that count as three pets?

    • I think so. I never had a better number.

    • My daughter, sissel brought home a snow fox, which I was really happy about. Is is still possible for my son, Gralnach to bring home a pet? Preferably a skeever? My goal is to have a total of 3 pets, a snow fox, a skeever (mud crab is fine too, tho), and a dog, bran. Can anyone confirm if this is possible? And if so, is there anyway to speed up the process or increase the chances of my son bringing home a skeever?

    • I think that if you stop by your family home more often, you'll have a better chance of triggering the encounter. Stop by after every quest and unload some junk on your spouse, then check on the kids to see if they brought anything home. If they don't have the pet you want, reload a save from just before you get close to your home.
