From a practical point of view, Meeko is not the most useful follower in the game. He has an annoying habit of blocking the player quiet a lot by standing in doorways (but then all the followers do that sometimes) so you have walk or run into him to make him move. He’s also not much good in a fight, apart from as a decoy. Worst of all, he tends to activate traps, which can get him or both of you killed.
NOTE: If dismissed, Meeko will return to Meeko’s Shack, even if the character has purchased a house somewhere.
