The RoboPup (Japanese: 犬型ロボット Robot-type Dog) is a dog breed introduced in Nintendogs + Cats. It is the only breed that doesn't cost any money and requires a voucher instead.

Once the player obtains a RoboPup Voucher from the Recycle Shop, the player must take it to the Kennel. Once it is redeemed, the dogs will be present in many different color options.

The RoboPup will do everything any other dog will do, only that it's barking and walking sounds robotic. Despite that, it still eats normal dog food and drinks water and can likewise become dirty and infested with fleas. Like all the other breeds, this is remedied with shampoo and shower.

RoboPups seem very hard to train in comparison to most regular dogs. They come untrained and often, like regular dogs, stubborn and hard to train.

Coat ColorsEdit

The RoboPup is available in many different colors that can be found by pressing "Surprise me!". There are over 22 different color combinations based on a primary body color and a secondary color for the extremities (ear tips, feet, head stripe, tail base, shoulders, and hips).

  • Sometimes on walks, neighbors mention a mechanical noise at the back of the kennel. This noise is likely the RoboPup being made, or playing with other RoboPups.
