A new model has been datamined:

Yeeeeeesss.
I hope this is the same Corgi that appears in the Greench's cave during Winter's Veil. That thing is adorable.
*enters warp speed in chair* WHOOOOOOOOAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

I will get this pet no matter how hard it is to get. and he will forever be on my team no matter what his skill set might be. (my guess is he might have the same skills as Perky Pug.)
WHERE IS MY BEAGLE?
I don't want to be a Debbie Downer, but I don't think this pet (if it is a pet anyway) will make Patch 5.4.

It's unlikely any pets will be added after this latest PTR build - we're too close to launch for Blizzard to push PTR content that isn't already developed (they have to localize the pet description into a ton of languages).

We may be looking at Patch 6.0 Corgis.
Don't care when we get them, we're getting Corgis. Eventually. I am a happy Mighella.

I am not sure we're all that close. There's plenty of stuff being added with each build, and there are features that haven't even been tested yet. At this point, I would expect they'll still add whatever they feel like (or don't feel like).

Nothing being added now needs localization. A new model without a pet entry needs localization - that's my concern.
Well, what I was saying was, if the patch were imminent yes that would be a problem. Since I'd be surprised if we saw the patch before the second half of August though, I can't see how they wouldn't have sufficient time to do that -- and that's assuming they haven't all ready started or gotten some of that process done which we have not seen for anything they might be wanting to add.
We need a Jack Russell model.

I'll pull out the "it's my birthday on Friday" card if I have to.

The list that MMO-Champion has posted of new items has 4 or 5 things referencing Greatfather, which I'm guessing means Greatfather Winter. I could see this being this years gift or something that could be in the daily bag.

Those are from the new TCG that's re-releasing old TCG loot cards. :)

I dunno if the corgi will be in the patch either but the important thing is that it's in the pipeline.

:') all my hard work...

What tells you that it's 'close' to launch?

Most people don't understand how far out Blizzard works.

All Patch 5.4 content is almost definitely done for their artists, sound designers, etc by now. They're working on the next big thing already. The only people still working on 5.4 are coders fixing bugs or doing last minute implementation of already created assets (this is where the Corgi may still end up making its way into the game if it is a pet) and devs working on class balance.

1 to 1.5 months out is 'last minute' for Blizzard when it comes to patching. IF it makes 5.4 as a Battle Pet it will be because localization was already done and they just were a bit slow on adding in all the completed pieces and tying them together.

However, there is another possibility too - there are "Perky Pug Costumes" datamined at the same time. I wonder if one of them turns your Perky Pug into a Corgi.
