This pet is directly attached to your authenticator, not your account, which means if you remove authenticator, Core Hound no longer will be available in game. It will became grey on your battle pets list and you won't be able to summon him even just as companion, until you re-activate the authenticator (mobile or keyring) or buy a new one. It will count for your captured pets though, despite the fact it is greyed and all his current stats and level will be preserved until you can reactivate him.

This guy is an Elemental, so he has strong defense vs Mechanical abilities, and he also has Burn which is a powerful attack against mechanicals. Might be useful vs mechanicals hmm?

I love this pet. Everytime I make a char I always couldn't wait to go to the mail box and go get him. Now with MoP out I don't have to go to the mail box anymore but I always try to summon him when someone else has him. I also love all of the emotions that he does it makes the pet more fun and interactive :D Happy Collecting :D

With the introduction of pet genders to this site, I have found out that my core hound pup is female. Will now be changing her name to whatever variation of "Flaming B*tch" the game will allow :)

I like the incentive for getting an authenticator. If you think about it, we really cared about getting the pet for our collection and now all our Blizzard games are more protected from hackers.
It really is a great pet too. I use him a lot!

I think its awesome that they decided to add this little one as a "reward" for getting the Authenticator.

Honestly, if you're only going to have one pet in your collection, it should be this one.

To me this pet is a bit double-edged for me. While he is a great-looking pet, has good animations, and gave me the final push I needed to purchase an authenticator, he is also overly-noisy. He makes his ghostly, barking noise every few seconds, and this can become a bit annoying if you are not currently basking in the glory of this cool pet. In closing, if you don't have an authenticator, get one. It provides great security which helps make up for the battle.net name being based on your email.

To all the GM's and Officers out there, as a GM myself, I have started to enforce some new rules regarding promotions and permissions in our guild and its bank. I have found it extremely useful to ask members of my guild to prove the security of their accounts by summoning their Core Hound Pup. For some insight into how to apply this to your guild, please read the "Promotions" section on our site. Guild Policies

Has to be one of my favorite pets. He looks great and does alot of animation instead of just sitting there.

I'd like to correct a previous post and say that, yes, the Pup DOES interact with the fetch ball. I love playing fetch with my pup.

You get this pet when you get an authenticator. It comes in the mail from Breanni. The core hound pup is very cute, and makes a good guard dog, he likes to stand on back legs, dig and fight over a bone, and i havent seen him do it but ive been told he rolls over.

Since you only get this little guy if you have an Authenticator tied to your account, some guilds are using him as a security feature on the guild bank: people don't get access until they show their Corehound Pup pet.

The Core Hound is most likely modelled after Cerberus - the mythical beast who guards the gates of hell.

Since we now receive a Core Hound pet along with having an Authenticator, you could say that it's the one guarding your account from potential threats. :)

Although they've moved away from achievement pets for every 25 pets learned, it's nice to see Blizzard using pets as a carrot for things they want players to do. This pup is much better than Mr. Chilly (sorry, Chilly), who's pretty boring. This guy is as interesting as any pet in the game, and a definitely five-star one.

I'm not a BM hunter, but anyone with a core hound pet needs to have this one out full time.

Found in the Firelands and the Molten Core, core hounds can trace their lineage back to the alpha male, Magmadar.
