U can on wild world if you place a golden shovel next 2 a 4 leaf clover for a day, though. it'll be under your bed. hope this helped!
Answer from: I Like Helping
Okay.You've got to be serious. Animal Crossing: New Leaf isn't about getting pet animals. It's about being mayor and helping the town. Getting a dog just doesn't fit the theme. Probably the closest things to a dog is a Balloon Dog or a villager that's a dog or Isabelle or the Police Station dogs. I'm sorry if I was insulting you in any way, and I hoped I helped.

There is definitely no dog in Animal Crossing New Leaf. I have over 150 hours in the game and countless hours looking up things online and there is no dogs besides Isabelle and her brother who works with Nook, Digby. And those aren't pets they're characters in the game. It would be kinda cool if you could have the option to have one in your home. Mini games for bells and it doesn't die if you don't feed it. :P I'm quite content with the game as it is though I'd hafta say. The changes from City Folk to New Leaf make me happy. :) *Can I just mention how radtacular it is that you can hand Blathers more than one item?!? :P*

To get a dog on ACNL u have to get a cheat cartrige and get the cheat code for a dog on it.
Answer from: sory if im rude
Sorry I agree with I Like Helping. It isn't about getting pets and all that. The closest you can get to a true pet is this: catch a bug or fish or buy a birdcage from Nookling Junction or ReTail. Then display the fish/bug in your home, and it will be in a cage.
If this sounds rude, then I sincerely apoligize: I should know, you can't walk through any of the rooms and NOT see one unless you're blind, which, if you're playing the game, you almost CAN'T be blind 'cause ya have to see to play.
Answer from: You can!!
You can get a pet dog you buy the dog house item and then when you place it in your house then you can see little red eyes and then it comes out
Answer from: Nikki
You can't get a dog, nor cat sadly although some of the characters can be dogs such as Isabelle and biskit + you can get a BALLOON dog which is an item for your house/tent. Only 1 person agreed that you can... I saw one of the characters with hamster cage
