The Cute Dog quest can be started at any point of the game by talking to the Tiny Girl. There are no requirements.
Description and walkthroughEdit
Once the quest has been received, it is possible to find the Puppy Cave to the north-east of Terinyo. Until the quest has been received, this cave cannot be seen or entered.
You need to descend to the bottom level of the cave where you will be able to find the Cute Dog. This is not as easy as it sounds, as you need to pass an Ant Nest and a Cavernous Level, both of which are very dangerous to low-leveled players. Giant Ants have very high PV. which means that low level players can find it hard or impossible to hit them.
If you get to the bottom level before four in-game days have passed (press Ctrl-E to see elapsed time), then the Cute Dog will be generated somewhere on the level. If more then four days have passed, it will be generated as a corpse, and is presumed to have died of starvation or at the hands of one of the monsters in the cave.
You must then battle your way to the surface with the Cute Dog (or its corpse), and return to Terinyo. At this point, the Cute Dog will stop following you and return to its beloved master, the Tiny Girl.
Whether you return the dog alive or dead, you will receive an alignment boost. Obviously, the boost is bigger if you return the dog alive.
If the dog is returned alive, then sometimes when you talk to the Tiny Girl she will give you a Piece of Candy.
