I'm also quite surprised there isn't one...but I'm kinda hoping still that they decide to add one in later on :)

It's not all about the achievements and getting another pet as a reward, but it is a nice acknowledgement of when you reach that high number in your collection that wow you actually made it! Something to work towards as a goal.

100% agree with an achievement (providing the total can be achieved without the need to buy pets or items which have 'free' pets).

The achievement should have a reward which increases the total number of pets you can have by 500.

That's the problem with an achievement for 800 pets. A quick search gave me 63 out of 861 pets that are from promotions, the pet store, collector editions, BlizzCon, TCG, etc. While some of those pets can be caged and traded, a more realistic achievement might be 700 or 750 pets.

Personally I don't care about that little box in my character-sheet that adds 10 more points to my achievement score. It doesn't actually matter to me if it's something recognized by the Devs. It still is a tremendous (and somewhat expensive) achievement anyway.

Pets were never meant to be a real challenge to get though. Legion pets take more time invested than most of all of the older ones. The only ones I can think of on the top of my head that really took significant time or effort was the Stunted Direhorn, the Celestial Tournaments, and Trunks. Most everything else was luck or you just just straight buy for gold. Legion requires 2 classes 105 and one 100. PvP on both factions. The Family Familiar achievement is going to take some time. A very large portion of players isn't going to even get Celestial Calf. The randomness/time gate of Alchemy pets is pretty annoying.
