*Please update to v1.20 asap, I found a bug introduced with previous update causing spawning issues.*
There are 8 optional questpacks available, each containing a different pet animal. You can mix and match whichever questpacks you want to install or install all 8 if you like, or just 1!

Specific spawn details
The adorable critters are FREE!!! and there's no huge quest as such to adopt them, you just need to find them and click on them. If you choose not to adopt - the animal is gone for good (can't restart the questpack, you'll have to reload to an earlier save).
Once adopted, your pet will start randomly showing up in dungeons, cities, villages, and hamlets for a couple of in-game hours to explore or help fight... or you can choose to tell them to come back later... or choose to dismiss them and tell them to go and wait indefinitely for you at another safe location in the region.
Each time they appear you can click on them for a pet related activity (message).
Look for them in Cities, not towns (no walls), farmsteads, or inns etc.
Make sure "Enemy infighting" is turned ON in the DFU Advanced>Enhancement screen or they won't be able to help fight.
Unfortunately the game classifies all Companions as "Enemies" so this will impact your ability to Rest in the short time they are with you.
Your pets likely won't attack specific quest enemies, depending on how the quest was written.
There's a chance all of your pets will turn up at the same time, but remember you can dismiss any of them and tell them to go and wait for you someplace else.
Having a lot of companion questpacks installed could impact performance on low spec machines (I'm running pretty much every mod and questpack I can download for Daggerfall and haven't had issues yet, but your mileage may vary).
Occasionally when resting/sleeping, due to the game fast forwarding time and not pausing the rest menu quick enough, when your pet visits you could get a doppelganger pet. Treat this as if your pet brought a friend along.
**If there are any major issues please let me know and I'll do my best to fix asap.**
(These are questpacks so should be compatible with any version of Daggerfall Unity)
1. Download the file (also available @ https://www.nexusmods.com/daggerfallunity/mods/117 )
2. Unzip the file inside StreamingAssets/Questpacks
3. If you're starting a new game, it should start working right away. If you're using it on a game you already started, you'll need to open up the console and type one of the above existing save codes (ONCE ONLY) to get it running. If this doesn't work, your version of DFU might only be able to start quests inside StreamingAssets/Quests from the console, so try moving the contents of the folder to StreamingAssets/Quests and try again.
Replace the previous folder (within StreamingAssets/Questpacks) and all files with the new one you downloaded and unzipped.
Make sure all files are overwritten.
