- The mutt was originally a terrier! In
the first petz game, PF.Magic Dogz, you could adopt Scrappy, a plump
little red pup looking somewhat like a staffordshire bullterrier!
- Our loved great dane was originally
another breed as well - a dark red setter!
- The chinchilla persian was originally
going to be a ragdoll, which you can see when you edit the breed
file... You can find "Chinchilla persian posing mysteriously as
"Rd"" and even [Breed name]..Ragdoll!
- In fact, you can find several weird
and sometimes funny things in the breed files! For example, in the
bulldogz file, in the clothing area, you can find "our own
little drag-queen"! Possibly because the bulldogz often wear
- Besides Catz and Dogz, PF.Magic has
also released Babyz and Oddballz (fantasy animals). Only oner
version has been released of these games, so we haven't seen
Oddballz 2 or the likes yet...
- The pig had originally been promised
as a download add-on for Dogz 3, but wasn't introduced until Petz 4.
- Nobody has successfully hexed a
breed's personality. The first person to hex a breed was
Annie of CDAC (Catz And Dogz Adoption Center, which later became
EPCPS). She created a chinese crested for Dogz 2. After her,
countless of breedz have been edited from all dogz and catz games!
- The dalmatian, sheepdog, poodle,
labrador, dachshund, russian blue, alley catz, chinchilla persian,
maine coon and tabby were originally add-ons for Petz II, that you
could download from petz.com. It wasn't until Petz 3 that they were
part of the original breedz.
- Before Petz 4 was released, a pig was
somehow uploaded to the automatic Adoption Center at petz.com. There
were many heated discussions about whether this was a hexed pet that
someone had managed to upload (hexed petz could not be uploaded to
the AC) or if someone on PF.Magic had accidently uploaded it! Still
today, no one seems to know for sure!
