Description
The unique dog follower, Meeko, is now a bit more unique, as well as fearsome, now following you as a white wolf, under the name "Roxy"! Now redesigned for compatibility with other Meeko altering mods!

This replaces Meeko, a dog found in the Morthal Swamps. You can find Roxy where Meeko usually is, waiting by the road Sourth of her shack (the road that leads East from Dragon Bridge to Fort Snowhawk). When you approach her, she will run back to her shack and wait for you to recruit her. (Continuing a game where you've already recruited Meeko will mean you already have Roxy following you).

In addition to looking like a wolf, Roxy can run, walk, and fight like a wild animal (i.e. use wolf animations, rather than dog animations) through dialogue.

This is a purely aesthetic mod, made mainly for my own pleasure and based off my dog, standalone from the previous versions of "Roxy -- Wolf Dog Follower" and designed to be as compatible with other Meeko mods as possible...
However, mods that change Meeko into a Husky or Death Hound (from Dawnguard), aren't compatable without this patch: (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=190312686)

(make sure you unsubscribe from the non-combatibilty version when subscribing to this)

-----------------------------------------------
How is This Different Than the Regular Version?
-----------------------------------------------
NPC traits can be given to them through the data file about the NPC, or through quests that make the NPC aliases. The normal way of editing NPC is to just change their data files, but since this data is read in an "all or nothing" way, this way makes your mod incompatible with any others that do the same. However an NPC can have any number of quests giving them traits in perfect harmony, so I've used a quest with scripts to 'Roxify' Meeko.
This means that it should be compatible with any mods that edit Meeko's data, whether it be adding scripts, changing stats or making him essential!

----------------------
Things You Should Know
----------------------
-Roxy will be seen as a male by the game
(if you need her to be female use the console command 'sexchange')*

-Roxy's 'skin' is seen as clothing; it will show over other aesthetics mods, and will be unequipped if something is equipped over it
(Roxy's skin will be re-equiped on loading a save, or telling her to 'act wild', if it becomes un-equipped)

-Meeko's name will not be changed to 'Roxy' if you have ever recruited him (if you have Skyrim Script Extender, this won't matter)

-Dialogue added by mods or DLC might not appear if Roxy is in wild mode: tell her to act tame again to say them to her

-This is standalone and should not be used with the old version of "Roxy -- Wolf Dog Follower". Make sure you unsubscribe from it when subscribing to this version

------------
Requirements
------------
NONE!
However, SKSE is required to change Meeko's name to "Roxy" if he has already been recruited

@Gohan and Wolf-Lover: I don't intend to make any cheat mods, but I've made this so that this modshould be compatible with any other meeko mods, so if you subscribe to another mod that makes Meeko invincivle (eg. Invincible Dogs http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=76446362), you will have an invincible Roxy
