While Nessie is an Easter egg with some history behind, as it was also featured in Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall and Titanfall 2; the black dog Easter egg has a different story. Which is heartbreaking.
Following a Kotaku report about the plush toys in Apex Legends, Jason McCord, lead level designer at Respawn Entertainment clarified on Twitter several aspects about the black dog players keep finding.
“Our dog of 10 years passed away suddenly from health issues while I was working hard on Kings Canyon. As any animal lover knows, this was a crushing blow to my morale and made many days hard to come to work.”
The second tweet reveals the name of the little dog we keep seeing in Apex Legends.
“Shadie was our best friend, and so I wanted her to live on in this little corner of the map. It legit makes me feel better to visit this area sometimes. Thanks for reading!”
If you played Apex Legends, maybe you already came across this shrine. Notice the black dog on a pillow and the two photographs.

Where to Find Apex Legends Shadie’s Easter Egg
Just like Nessie, Shadie can be found in different locations. The shrine above, for example, is found while playing the King’s Canyon map. Look for it inside a large building in the market area.
But Shadie also appears in a hidden location; which requires some extended exploration. If you want to find this Apex Legends Easter egg, make sure you follow the video below.
