Hands down one of if not the best hunting dog in ark. Cheap to armor, pack bonus, heals when harvesting corpses, and most importantly they are treated as man sized for Dino colishion so even raptors don’t get stuck on them. High lvl pack can down deathworms and alpha Rex BUT require a anchor or the Rex will spin and do massive trample damage.
Usage in game:
1) tame aid- can preserve prime meat allowing you to tame carnivores with ease.
2) pack hound- I’d personally only recommend for packs of five and upward, but their ability to heal like Argents means they gain strength with every victory.
3) Pet- Their just cute.
They give a good amount of xp when killed for how weak they are ride on your pets to get them xp also if they start running away that means you can easly kill them on the other hand if they start running towards you that means you may be to weak to defeat them.
