Friend of Dog is a supportive perk that allows a survivor to quickly amass a group of dogs for recruitment. Friends of dogs are versed in 'Dog Psychology' which allows them to befriend feral dogs in pet shops and junkyards, gain extra resources from trader dogs, and easily recruit Panda, which is apparently a type of dog. Lastly, friends of dogs will not suffer any penalties from the event True Despair.

A group of survivors can learn the Friend of Dog perk from a Rare Book Trader for 15 food.
