Gelert logo

The Gelert ("gell-ert") is a loyal and brave canine-like Neopet. The current design was chosen from the Pick a Gelert competition, where The Neopets Team combined the winning picks - 2 and 5.

Gelert are 60cm (1.97ft) on average, making them one of the smaller Neopets.[1]

They are not limited edition, meaning you can create one whenever you like.

Site description: "Many Neopian Legends tell tales of a Gelert's selfless acts of courage. Once you befriend one, you can guarantee you have a faithful pal that will never let you down."[2]

Previous Versions

The angular Polypup had a chubby, sharp body. Instead of having a nose pad like its replacement, it simply had nostrils at the end of its rounded snout. After being renamed and redesigned on 19 July, 2000, Gelerts were given whip-like tails and ears. It was then redesigned on 29 November, 2001 to stand in the same perspective as the other Neopets.


Famous Gelerts


  • The name "Gelert" comes from a Welsh legend, where a dog of that name was the loyal companion of Prince Llywelyn.[3]
