The Guardian Cub is a mini-pet version of the Winged Guardian.

This pet is available for digital download exclusively from the Blizzard Store. It may be purchased using any major credit card.

The pet item can be traded in-game as well as sold on the Auction House after a 24 hour cooldown period. However, the Guardian Cub is a single-use item, so players will need to purchase one cub for each character they wish to give the companion. Players may hold more than one Guardian Cub item in a single inventory.

love this little guy! Cuteness + power = total win! I named him Falkor after the flying dog-ish creature from Neverending Story because that's immediately what I thought of when I first saw his picture on the website. <3

Originally, I wasn't a fan of this pet, but he isn't too shabby in a battle!  And at least the Guardian Cub doesn't look as goofy as the Quilen Cub.

It is that time of year-- I named this utterly adorable little guy Moonraiser, after the winged lion King of the Isle of Misfit Toys (Rudolph, anyone?)!  : >  Kind of a big name for such tiny shoulders, but I think he can handle it!  So glad he turned out to be account wide.

I bought one today (12/12/12).  I can confirm that this is now an account-wide pet; I can see and use it on other characters than the one it was "bound" to.  I can also right-click it and "Put In Cage", though we'll see if I still can after 24 hours.

This little guy is on sale in the Blizzard store for $5, probably just for the week.

This is my favorite pet by far.  Roar then Reckless Strike.  Usually the fight is about about over.

I just adore this pet! I got him off the AH for around 3k and he's been flying around with his dad and I ever since! I just love his animations. I really wish more companion pets had them!

He does make a little sound when you click on him as well!

Tells me to visit dun morogh, so I go to dun morogh then it tells me to visit karazan. I have no idea where that is.

I LOVE this pet. His animations are adorable and varied! Also when you click on him several times (besides the adorable baby growls) he actually lets out a rather grown-up roar!

Grabbed it from the AH for 5k gold as well, on Doomhammer-EU horde side. Maybe I should've waited a bit longer, but I'd promised myself to go for it if it hit that price, and didn't float around at 10k+. If I was to buy the pet in the Blizzard store for 10 bucks, 5k would also be my pain threshold... hence this decision to buy!

I bought the pet to see if I could get a decent gold>dollar conversion rate on my server, and someone priced it down to around 14k, so I learned the pet. I love the pet itself, but I think it was an experiment by Blizzard to how we will react to buying gold, even indirectly.

I see Blizz is now condoning the exchange of real-world money for in-game gold... I love the pet, I just think making it tradeable is a bit hypocritical on their part - you can't sell gold directly, but do it via our store and it's all ok!

He also rears up on his hind legs and throws some punches in front of him very reminiscent of Scrappy Doo.

The sound it makes is a little "Rawr!" As if he was actually saying it!

The backflip mid air isn't just an idle animation, I have him doing it while we're flying around and it looks like he does a little loop! Such an adorable pet!

The firefly-attacking animation ends with a very kitten-like faceplant. I squee'd.

Still a little clumsy, this tiny winged lion is learning how to be the best mount it can be!
