A few weeks ago i was roaming around dawnstar until a stray dog came up to me. I let it follow thinking it would be fun but after a while i lost it so i thought it just died so i carried on my adventure. Since i found out you can have a pet dog on skyrim with hearth fire i went to fort dawnguard to get Sceolang (the husky) but it said i couldent because i already had an animal with me. At first i thought it was because i had serana so i dismissed her and still i couldent get him as a follower. After a while i put 2 and put 2 together and found out it was because of that stray dog from ages ago i went back to dawnstar and look for it but no i couldent find it i also no longer have the save file. So is there anyway i can get animals as followers again?
