Minecraft Wolves: Man’s Best Friend [Video]

Minecraft recently received the exciting addition of beds which allow players to sleep at night in order to pass the time until morning. Logically, the next course of action for the game is the addition of pets–specifically wolves. These animals can be found in the wild and then tamed with a collar. Upon being tamed, your faithful pack of dogs will follow you around and attack both hostile and passive creatures on command.

The following video showcases a currently unfinished version of the wolves. These creatures will be added to the game upon the upcoming release of beta version 1.4.

    better than dogs in a way :O

    but then again I was going to make a cabin on a mountain so I can sit on the porch with my dog and a shotgun.

    Looks like its time to expand the front porch to let my dog sleep with me in minecraft. Then we can go hunt some creepers.

    Truly an awesome update from Notch, I might just stick with 1 dog to make it more like fallout :p
