Aren't the vast majority of OC's not canon in any way whatsoever already? With that being the case, then them having a non-canon pet fits them perfectly in my book. Equestria is a fantasy world, lottsa things could be there. Just say your OC's pet has not been properly discovered in the show yet.

Eh, well it makes your OC look less believable.

That's how I determine a good OC: Could it believably appear in MLP without a problem?

Having a creature that is copyrighted to another company and appears in a different universe as a pet is a bit of a problem. But my philosophy is always ultimately, "Just do what you want and have fun".

My character has a magic enchanted robot for a pet. It's very feasible and makes sense for the character. So much so that I was able to keep it for Equestrian Empire with a bit of minor change. They're very strict to show canon and they were fine with it for the most part.

 

While that's a pretty big stretch for a squirrel as far as looks go, you could probably get into Equestrian Empire with it too. I don't think your pet is non canon, just non canon looking. You might not wanna cross two species. It might be more believable then.

It's not a straight up original hybrid. It's a species from a Hayao Miyazaki movie.

They should be a thing.

 

There is also the idea of it being your familiar if your oc is a unicorn or alicorn. Luna created the Tanibus after alll. Others could probably create them too tho probably not as powerful. 

 

(I'd probably give my oc a "tamed" timberwolf XD)

Well if it is your OC and you like it/have fun doing so, than I see no problem with it.
