Animal Companion (3.5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki

Animal Companion [General]
You are befriended by an animal companion.
Prerequisite: Handle Animal 1 rank.
Benefit: Your effective druid level is treated as 4 levels higher than your overall character level for the purposes of determining your animal companion stats and your ability to summon an animal companion. If you have no levels in druid, you gain these abilities as if you did except that you cannot summon an animal companion magically, you must actually travel into the wilderness and find one (this takes the same amount of time). You also cannot share spells with your animal companion unless they are from druid or ranger levels.
Special: This feat can be taken multiple times. Each time it is taken after the first, your effective druid level increases by 4. However, no matter how many times you take this feat, your current effective druid level can never exceed your actual HD.
