Cyberdogs, also called cyberhounds, are mechanically enhanced dogs found in the wasteland.

Background

Technologically advanced organizations such as the pre-War United States government, the Enclave and Big MT developed the creatures. Big MT created weapons like the K9000 cyberdog gun which used a dog’s brain as its central processor and could sniff out and lock onto targets.[1][2] Denver in particular had a large supply of cyber police dogs, and they still roam the streets.[3]

Characteristics

Cyberdogs are also called "K-9 units." They are not affected by pulse weapons. Their brains are subject to neural degeneration, but can be swapped out. If cyberdogs die, it is possible for them to be reconstructed or fixed, as seen in one of Roxie's endings.[4] Cyberdog models include Mk. II and III, differing in appearance. Unique models include K-9 and Gabe.[5] K-9 was created by the Dr. Schreber in the Enclave outpost of Navarro and based on the "Cyberhound Mk II personal security model."[6]

  2. Old World Blues endings, X-8 Research Center: "As the Courier ran through the X-8 facility multiple times, the computers analyzed the test subject's movements. Rather than performing a superficial observation, they realized the subject barely knew what Communism was - or even what a high school was. This confused them for a time, until the facility finally realized that its research had... succeeded. So it let its Cyberdogs out into the wastes to help protect small communities from physical aggression rather than communist propaganda."

    Antony: "The mechanical dog you have with you - where did you get it?"
    The Courier: "Rex? I picked him up in New Vegas."
    Antony: "Oh? Such things are common in Denver, but I didn't know that other cities had them as well."
