I'd like my homonculus to look different.
I know the devs choose the dog as an easy-to-implement solution , but we have other constructs in game that could be scaled down to be a pet :
- Any Golem (Iron Golem comes to my mind)
- Warforged
- Titan

My guess is that the Dogs where picked because of there low height. With in increase o f players using pets you don't want to have the pets take up the entire screen so no one can see whats going on.

Even if the shrunk down a titan or iron golem to be the same height as players, they are pretty wide. Imagine having 3 or 4 of them blacking your view in a raid.

Why not just a tiny mephit-sized Titan? Don't crush our dreams!

I doubt homonculus is right word to use for our pets.

Actually I expect a DDO store cosmetic purchase at some point to change the look of the pets.
