Get Your Paws on The Sims™ 2 Pets Expansion Pack!
Create the perfect pet for your Sims to train, play with, and love throughout a lifetime. Pick everything from their paws to their personality. Choose from dozens of popular dog and cat breeds like Schnauzer and Siamese. Or create a unique cat or dog by modifying their features and body type. Your Sims can teach their pets tricks, take them for a romp in the park to meet other furry friends, or buy them toys, beds, and much more. But pets have minds of their own-so expect the unexpected!
Your Sims Have Pets!
Add dogs, cats, birds, or guinea pigs to your Sims family. Whether it’s kids cuddling kittens, adults watching TV with a drowsy Calico, or elders spending a sunny day in the park with their faithful German Shepherd, your Sims will share a lifetime of special moments with their pets.
Choose from dozens of dog and cat breeds including Pug and Persian. Or create your own unique cat or dog by modifying its body type, face shape, fur color, markings, and more. Then pick a personality! Is your Boxer gifted or goofy, your Burmese hyper or lazy? You decide!
Pets Have Genetics
Cross different breeds to create designer pets or make new ones and register them to appear in Create-A-Family as a unique breed.
Sit, Spike, Sit
Your Sims can teach their pets tricks like shake, fetch, roll over, and more. Unruly pets might topple the trash or scratch the sofa, but Sims can change their pets’ ways with the right training.
Pets Have Jobs
Skilled pets can have careers of their own and earn a living as Movie Stars, Rescue pets, or members of an elite Security Pet Corps.

omg, i’m so squeeing over here! they mention German Shepherd above… that’s what i have! i can’t wait to see what people create after they get this EP. i’m getting goosebumps just thinking about it!
 here’s a vast amount of information from TSR over here. the information gathered was duing the “pre-alpha” stage of the game… so some items discussed may not make it (if they end up too buggy)… and i’m sure we’ll be on pins & needles when more information about the EP’s features starts to trickle the netwaves. i’ll be glued to Snooty Sims with the latest news.
