Grand Theft Auto 5 will feature 15 different species of dog, a new preview posted by Jeux Actu has revealed.

What's not clear is if players will be able to buy one of these dogs in GTA 5, or if dog interaction in limited to the already publicised Chop.

What you might not know is that Chop is actually Franklin's friend Lamar's dog, who sometimes accompanies Franklin. Chop can also be used to distract enemies.

Jeux Actu also states that you'll be able to customise your dog with new accessories and it will be possible to lose your dog.

Yesterday it was revealed that GTA 5 will feature gangs voiced by real gang members.

GTA 5 will be released September 17 for Xbox 360 and PS3.

yea lol tired of seeing the word species; because "Dogs" are a Sub-Species. Chihuahuas, bulldogs, and golden labs, and shih-tsu's etc.... are Dogs.

Will they have Golden Retrievers? Rottweilers and Pittbulls are the stereotypical dogs to have in a game like this, but I would like to have damn Golden Retriever! :)

The game does not feature 15 species of dog, it features 15 breeds of dog... DOG is a species

Seriously if you're going to write an article, please make sure you give writers an okay name.

Define: species

a group of living organisms consisting of similar individuals capable of exchanging genes or interbreeding. The species is the principal natural taxonomic unit, ranking below a genus and denoted by a Latin binomial, e.g., Homo sapiens .

Actually if you took some time to look around you'd see that it's actually been confirmed on many sites that Chop is actually Lumar's dog. If you go to the gta 5 website and click news you can see that Rockstar has given hands on previews to IGN, JeuxActu and another German company I don't remember and they all say that Chop is actually Lumar's dog and he just accompanies Franklin.... Just so you know :)

Wow, good job reading.

"15 different species of ANIMALS"

Not dogs...

Even w/o speaking French, you can see it says "15 especes animales"

EDIT: not to mention, why would anyone think there are different species of dogs? The word is "breeds" and they have totally different meanings. Are you actually employed by VideoGamer or are random people who make accounts allowed to write articles?

I hope there are pitbulls.
I know that's stereotypically a dog for gang members, but I happen to like pitbulls.
