Gametitle-VB.pngThe following is based on Van Buren and is not canon.

The Devil Dog is a special dog found around Hangdog Village and a possible companion of the Prisoner in 2253.


Devil Dog is a mutant dog worshiped by the Blackfoot. The Hangdogs want to either tame or kill him, although they would rather see him killed. If one has a high Outdoorsman skill and tasty food, they can tame him. He is also sick with a rabies-like disease, making him aggressive and hostile. If he is cured before he is tamed, he will wander away from the Blackfoot territory. He may also be encountered later in the game.

Effects of player's actions

If one tames him first before curing him, he gets sicker and sicker until he dies. The Hangdogs want to use him for breeding to have his bloodline in the Hangdogs' dogs. He has an evil spirit that brings bad luck to the tribe, which is why they call him the "Devil Dog" and would prefer him killed.


Devil Dog's real name is Dances With Wolves, this becomes known if the dog is spawned with console commands.


Devil Dog was planned for inclusion in the canceled game Van Buren.
