Hello, InsanePsychoRabbit here again with another dog breed. This time I give you Angelo, Rinoa's pet dog from Final Fantasy VIII.

So I just got FF8 the other day and discovered that one of the player characters, Rinoa, has a gorgeous pet dog (Angelo) whom she can summon as her limit break. I absolutely fell in love with the dog and decided to create him as a pet for your Sims.

Angelo strongly resembles an Australian Shepherd, and for this reason is based on the Maxis Australian Shepherd. I used one of the basic coat patterns as a starting point, though most of the coat color is my work. I know the coat isn't perfect, but the intent is to make it look similar.

These are my source images:

  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install.

If it's FF...I'm in! You did a sweet version of Angelo, and he looks great in play.( he's the official SEED mascot here ) Well done and thank you.

BTW, Is it possible to make a big cat out of a dog? I can never seem to find a good rendition RedXIII from FF7. Be cool to see you work your magic with that one...: )
