Skyrim is chock full of quests for eager adventurers, and there are so many things to do in the game players usually don't catch them all on their first playthrough.
But animal lovers were disappointed to find Skyrim sorely lacking in quests to find canine companionship, because players can't directly adopt a stray dog in game.
worst part of Skyrim was when I found that dog whose owner died in a cabin, and then I of course had to adopt the dog bc i'm not a monster— Patrick Lenton (@PatrickLenton) April 5, 2016
The lack of dog adoption options made most gamers shrug their shoulders and Fus Ro Dah on, but dedicated dog lover Patrick Lenton wasn't going to let the game squash his dream of adopting a virtual dog.
@PatrickLenton and i have to fight like 300% harder to save my dog from being eaten by a dragon and i've honestly never been so anxious— Patrick Lenton (@PatrickLenton) April 5, 2016
Patrick took on the glitchy quest to figure out how to adopt a dog in Skyrim, a quest that drove him to the brink of madness.
@PatrickLenton so i go to an orphanage, to discover they are being mistreated by an evil woman, so I kill her— Patrick Lenton (@PatrickLenton) April 5, 2016
