Adam Doochin asks the Rangers to find his dog.


  • Consult the Highpool map for the dog's location.
  • Use the chew toy on her to get her to follow.
  • Deliver her straight to Adam. Don't let the dog get eaten by cockroaches or Doochin will refuse to talk to the Rangers, meaning the quest can't be completed.

  • Using animal whisperer perk and then using it on another 3 animals makes quest completion impossible with either the perk or with the chew toy, this is done easily as it is often one of the first points in game that the players party use animal whisperer and the farm near by has many chickens
