For a game known for its dungeons and its dragons, it sure is filled with some astoundingly good dogs. Here are five of the best.
Dogs, or doggos as they’re more commonly known, have log held a reputation as humanity’s best friend, and this seems to be true whether they’re actual dogs, robot dogs (at least until they kill us all), or any of the various dogs you’ll find in the roleplaying game, Dungeons & Dragons.
It’s this latter variety of dog that we’re interested in today, because we’re here to talk about five of the best dogs in Dungeons & Dragons.
And before you ask, yes you can pet all of these dogs in Dungeons & Dragons.
Of the many dogs you’ll find in Dungeons & Dragons, only a stalwart few are trained to work in tandem with a rider to traverse long distances at speed, carrying important messages, or on occasion charging into battle (though who would make a sweet face like that one charge into violence? Only a horrific monster, that’s who).
These are dogs who can teleport, which makes them especially good at playing fetch. Friendly, intelligent, and supernaturally pre-disposed to being good, blink dogs might have a mean sounding snarl, but every last one of them is a big ol’ softie.
Gray Renders are giant monsters who will seek out a bond with a more intelligent creature that they can rely on and snuggle up to. Once a Gray Render “adopts” you, the bond is for life. For better
or worse. Every Gray Render has its own unique quirks:
But that just means your Gray Render has a lot of personality.
Bonus: Hell Hounds
You might be wondering, surely these fire-breathing devil dogs that are literal infernal fiends from the various layers of hell aren’t going to make this list? Well you’d be wrong. All dogs are good dogs.

Every last one of ’em. Even werewolves, hound archons, and Shield Guardians.
