Meet River, the star of Fallout 4, aka Dogmeat.

River belongs to Joel Burgess, the lead level designer of Fallout 4, which goes a long way to explaining why Dogmeat can’t die.

If it were my pet I was basing a companion on, I’d make darn sure it was immortal too.

In the behind the scenes video, River is seen frolicking, snuffling, barking, wading in rivers, and just being generally adorable.

The gameplay that the footage is interspersed with shows how River has been transformed into Dogmeat for Fallout 4.

Fallout 4 is out on November 10 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
