Dogz 4 is a virtual pet game based on the Petz 3 engine with added features such as travel play scenes, voice recognition with IBM Via Voice, and the ability to adopt pigs and bunnies. Players can also create and edit their own play scenes with the editor. You can choose from many different breeds of canine friends in the adoption center. Your Dogz need a lot of care and attention. If they are neglected, the program will warn you that your Dogz have run away! If you optionally install Catz 4, you will have the option to play with both Dogz and Catz in a combined version, allowing you to have one dog and one cat, and vice versa.
