Life Cycle & Reproduction
Diet & Trophics
Lopers seem to have sensitive mouths and will not fetch things like a dog, but if raised with the same diet as the vegetarian portion of a person's diet, it can aid by protecting a person from eating harmful plants.
History & Background
As they can easily be domesticated and housebroken, they make for popular pets in new colonies, but they need space. Found to be loyal pets and herders on the plains, the animals were soon domesticated and introduced as pets on many worlds around the subsector.
In some regions, Vargr use Caledonian Lopers as humans use dogs -- for companionship and as guards. There are also quite a few amateur and professional racing circuits.
Finally, there is also an "underground cuisine" circle that considers the meat a delicacy as it is very lean.
