I just installed The Sims 2: Pets. I was playing one of my families when a Child rolled a Want to Obtain a Pet, so I had him befriend a stray dog. When I clicked on the dog, there was no adopt option, so I figured it was because of my Sim's age and had his mom (an Adult) make friends with the dog, too. Still, there's no option to adopt the dog. Help? --Sparrowsong 01:40, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

Children and under can't adopt. You have to get Teen and up to adopt. To adopt, make sure you have a good relationship with the dog and the option should appear when interacting with the dog. Hope this helps! Archie 01:44, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I tried to get his mom to adopt the dog, but I haven't had any luck. Does she have to be Best Friends instead of just Pet Friends with the dog? Sparrowsong 01:46, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

Just pet friends. According to my game. Archie 01:55, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

Do I have to raise the Lifetime Relationship or something? Sparrowsong 01:56, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

For me, the best would be 60+ relationship. You should email a_morris for better results. Archie 02:02, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

OMG, thanks! *Glomps Archie* Sparrowsong 02:07, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

(This is for the sims 3) First, enable the Testingcheatsenabled cheat (if you want to use cheats) and shift-click on the stray. An option will come up saying 'Add to Active Family/Household'. Press this and the Stray Pet will be added to the household. To name it, shift-click on it again and press 'Edit Sim in Create a Sim'. This will take you to create a sim. You can change the name of the stray here. After changing the name, click on the tick button at the bottom of the screen. You have adopted a stray! (P.S. if you have never used testingcheatsenabled before, I strongly advise you look on the sims wiki page for testingcheatsenabled. Also, some of the options. Have told may only be available after certain patches). Bakerychaz 06:46, June 9, 2012 (UTC)
