Find the Pseudo-Dog Tail is an optional side-mission featured in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha.

This tail will help me study the pseudo-dogs genetic structure and learn more about its psychic abilities and how to counter the effects.

  • The side missions in Lost Alpha are largely symbolic, reward the player far more frugally than in the base game, and detract from the game generally. Why would a player hunt down and recover a body part and off load it for a pittance?
  • This is the second such mission given by Sakharov and completion is required for progression to the other (poorly rewarding) missions.



  • There are plenty of Blind Dogs that spawn in the Yantar area, but no Pseudodogs.
  • Since there is a time limit it is obviously simpler to accept the mission after previously obtaining a Pseudodog tail.
  • Useful places to hunt the dogs down would be near the Bus stop or near the Crater Building.
