Where is the dog in Baldur's Gate 3?
First things first, we need to locate the dog. You can find Scratch the dog at the back of the blighted village, he will just be hanging out around there, in the woods. Naturally, what you want to do is approach him and try to be as friendly as possible.
While you can definitely use a potion to befriend him faster, it is not needed. Just get him to sniff you so he can recognize you as a friend. Then, you can find out about his condition.
Basically, his owner is dead and we need to show him. If you have Animal handling, you can persuade him that way or via Perception check to read his collar or Intimidation to make him less threatening. There's several ways around this.
