Fallout Shelter received a game changing update today: Pets.

In a tweet from the official Fallout Twitter account, it was announced that your dwellers can now have their very own animal companion.

This is a part of a larger update to the game, according to Bethesda, and will include the much loved hound Dogmeat. Also in the update are updates to the Dweller and Overseer classes, as well as the ability to evict lazy members, and the addition of a 'sell all' option in the inventory.

Dogmeat is a recurring character in the Fallout series, and a familiar face to fans.

Fallout Shelter is available on iOS and Android.
