Tame the Devil Dog was going to be a quest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It was located in Blackfoot Village.[1]


If you have a high Outdoorsman skill and the appropriate bribes of food, you can tame the Devil Dog and make him a companion.

Character type completion breakdown

  1. Science Boy - Could develop something chemical to initially improved his reaction to you, effectively giving you a temporary boost to Persuasion re: dealing with dogs (really it's Outdoorsman, but whatevah). He's also likely to have the best Outdoorsman chance.
  2. DiploBoy - With a high Persuasion could get a synergy bonus to Outdoorsman for help in taming the Devil Dog.
  3. Stealth Boy - Could sneak into the Devil Dog's lair and slip him something to calm him down and make him less likely to attack.
  4. Combat Boy - Can beat it up with unarmed attacks (so as to not kill him), showing him that he (CombatBoy) is the alpha in this relationship. It might take a couple of beatings, but it'll stick.

1 I've been told of a strange and powerful dog the Hangdogs call the "Devil Dog" that lives to the north. They fear it and think it's an angry spirit, since they haven't been able to tame it like they would a normal dog.
2 I managed to tame the Devil Dog, though it took some science to make everything go smoothly. Now he follows me around. I call him <DEVILDOG>.
3 I showed the Devil Dog who's boss, and now he follows me around. I call him <DEVILDOG>.
