    I'm starting to notice that some pets are alot faster than others. is there a reason? Is it based on the owner or something else?

    Pets with more than 125 stamina will move faster than those without.

    I'm not sure at exactly which values the pets start moving faster... but my rune beetle (160 dex) can keep up with me even when running!

    I've heard rumors of 'pre-patch' Cus that move so fast it looks like they teleport to people.

    I've never seen one in action, and I wouldn't even know how to verify it was one if someone said they were selling one.

    i have some pets that do this, it seems they're on top of something faster than i can finish saying "all kill"
    not sure, but it also appears when they are guarding you they attack faster as well. maybe its the dayquil kickin in

    its the dex/sta.. only a few pets can exceed 125 dex and they must be above it prior to taming. such as rune beetle.

    cu's, which, i have not messed with in a while due to getting rid of my elf tamer, from memory their dex is above 125 but it gets truncated to 125 post tame, leaving them the same speed as other pets. too bad because a fast Cu, while lacking spells, would be nasty. they hit hard and are tough.

    They do have 125 dex... but mine has 150 something stamina. Mouth zipped. However, it is not fast. i just saw a gdragon in yew btw that was absolutly flying, and it had 138 dex, and was obviously blessed. so i dont think this is the case.

    You used to be able to curse tame pets that had their dex halved after taming, such as greater dragons or cu sidhe. The result would be stamina that was higher than 125 after taming. Those pets would be faster than normal pets of that species would be. I don't think you can do that anymore.

    bake kitsune also have dex up to 145. i tamed one with 144 dex and its fast. i can be running full speed for screens and it will keep up. it would be super nasty to sick that little puppy on a dismounted person, they wont get away.

    i havent done testing to determine if it is the dex or the sta score which causes the pets to run faster but i have noticed on pets with dex exceeding 125 that they always move faster. take that how you will.
