This article is about an older version of DF.

Pets are creatures that have been adopted as such by dwarves or other creatures. Pets serve as companions (and sometimes protectors) for their owners. Animals can be tamed and trained at a kennel.

Tame animals can be made available for adoption in the Animals page in the 'z' status menu. Pets provide their owners with happy thoughts, but they cause negative ones if they die, made worse if the pet isn't given a proper burial.

As long as a creature is somebody's pet, they cannot be butchered.
