    I'd support this as a graphical concept, basically as a pet that looked super cool, but I suspect their interaction with the world in therform of 'powers' would be highly problematic and have a staggering list of unintended consequences.

    I think you should be able to hatch the dragon egg, and raise a dragon from the size of an ocelot to about the size of the wither. It would have five sizes: ocelot, wolf, cow, horse, wither.

    It would get stronger with every size it grows it would get stronger, dealing more damage and with more health.

    Perhaps it would be mainly visual (the powers like frost breath just being blue fire or something like that but have weakness's and restistence to stuff depending on where they hatch instead of being found. Maybe you could breed dragons to get eggs too? All right last thing in this very very disorganized comment perhaps they could be as tall as a horse and 4 blocks wide.

    yes but really hard to keep as pets. you would constantly have to feed it something special or put it in line so that it follows commands: like letting you ride it.

    Pet dragons are among the things I most want to see in Minecraft, so I upvoted.  Still, I would hope they are relatively small and not overly powerful, even if they are rideable as adults.  That way they won't be overpowered.

    Ooooh But they would be guarded BY THE MAMA DRAGON ! Epic boss fight alert!

    Yes, i have liked dragons ever since i was a little girl (yes, i am a girl) and have downloaded Addons and mods for dragons but they are sometimes hard to download so i think it would be easier to just have them in the game already.

    Each biome could have specific breeds of dragon that could be caught and tamed using various methods specific to the breed you are looking to obtain as a buddy/pet.

    For example; A blizzard dragon only found in Arctic tundra biomes that only spawns during a certain time of day or night and can only be tamed with fish, or maybe you need to arrange a certain type of block like say maybe Blue Ice in a pattern or structure that in turn allows you to summon/spawn it in order to fight/tame it.

    Or a dragon that can only be found during thunder storms?
    Some more common dragons could spawn like any other mob in their respective biomes, but other more uncommon breeds require the player to complete certain tasks specific to that breed.

    The Ender Dragon could be a Legendary you have a chance to obtain for completing The End, giving players a common goal to work towards.

    I'd rather have "Tameable Dragons" than "Pet Dragons". 
    Though, if you bred two Tamed Dragons together, you should be able to get a Baby Tamed Dragon from it.

    STILL, The Dragon Concept needs fleshing out more. What do they look like/how do they act/what do they drop/etc.

    Absolutely. I think Minecraft would be SO much more awesome if I could fly on a dragon that could breathe fire and again, that would just be AWESOME!

    I disagree with the elemental part. The dragon egg should just hatch into an ender dragon. I support the idea of pet dragons however this can potentially be overpowered. I have some ideas on how to balance this.
    Obviously the pet dragon would have to be made much weaker than the ender dragon and should probably be smaller, but they could also make the egg difficult to hatch to make the process of owning a dragon harder. Maybe the dragon will start out hostile when it first hatches and you must feed it something (maybe something found in the end city?) to tame it. The dragon should also be difficult to keep tamed. They could give the dragon a "happiness" scale that goes up by one every time you feed it. If its happiness is 0 the dragon will be hostile and not tamed, if its happiness is 1 the dragon will be passive towards the player, if its happiness is 2 the dragon can be enabled to follow the player like a wolf, if its happiness is 3 the dragon will attack mobs for the player like a wolf, and if its happiness is 4 it will let you ride it, if a saddle is equipped. Its happiness can be constantly diminishing over time, maybe go down one point every day? So, you must constantly feed it so that it remains tamed. If it reaches 0 then you will have to retame it. When flying on the dragon, it should have a stamina bar that determines how long you can stay in the air. When it runs out the dragon falls to the ground and you will be able to fly again once the stamina bar replenishes. Also I feel that the dragon shouldnt be particularly fast when walking on the land so that the purpose of a horse is not defeated.

    The ability to control a pet dragon's powers is nice.

    They can start off wild & neutral, but defensive. You could tame one & fly on it for 2x sprinting speed. A Chinese dragon for the mountains, a Serpent for the seas, an ice breathing blue dragon in snowy biomes, a fire breathing dragon near big pools of lava. They'll live in caves, but aggressive supersized ones will live in abandoned forts surrounded in treasure. They eat cows & horses & pandas & dolphins.

    DARKELFX has a point, but it can easily be fixed make the dragons neutral mobs, but make them protective of their nests, make them pack animals but the alpha is different from the others like the alpha can be bigger and have horns but the others are slightly smaller and do not have horns, make the chances of taming an alpha extremely hard, add a potion that makes you undetectable to dragons and add a different armour set that can be crafted from different dragon type skins

    Yea, it would be so cool to have something like "Dragon Mounts" mod in vanilla Minecraft! I've always dreamed of being able to grow my own dragon! Plus, the Dragon Egg would get some use, and it will give players much more motivation to fight the Ender Dragon. EVERYONE VOTE FOR THIS ONE!!!

    What if the Ravager have a tiny probability to drops a special saddle that only you can use on a dragon baby which you have to wait too many days (calendar days) to grow up?

    It would be awesome if you could hatch the ender dragon egg that you get from killing the ender dragon. Right now the egg is pretty much useless except for decoration, aka Grian's lamp...

    There should be five stages of a dragons life.

    1. Egg. An egg could give one status effect like a beacon, but not as strong.
    2. Hatchling. A hatchling would have to be fed cooked meat every day.  It would be as big as a baby wolf and it would attack any mob that came close.
    3. Young dragon. Young dragons would be a little bigger than a wolf. You could ride one and it could light one mob on fire at a time, once lit it will never go out. 
    4. Adult dragon. An adult dragon can breath lots of fire over a large chunk of land.  They are as big as the ender dragon and could be ridden.
    5. Ancient dragon. They sleep a lot, and when they sleep smoke comes out of there nose.  They have less health than an adult dragon but any mob or player they hit with there fire will die instantly, armor dosen't matter.

    Sorry for the long post, I am very passionate on the subject.

    I like the concept but it would be better if it doesn't have powers because it would be too op!

    With the nether update they should add a crimson and warped dragon boss you can find in the new forest. Once you defeat the boss dragon, you can take their eggs & hatch them to keep them as your pet. These would be extremely rare, warped dragon being even more rare. Maybe even add a soul sand valley one.

    This is great.

    The dragon mounts mod gives a great feel of what the minecraft world could be like with pet dragons.

    I think that if they add a dragon they should add a new illager type called the poacher that would hunt and capture dragons, making you have to find and rescue it, thus balancing them so they're not super overpowered. Depending on the type of dragon, either a baby dragon, that would stay at a pet size should be able to hold a small amount of items and make enderman not aggressive when you have it near, or the addition of a full size rideable dragon. If adding a full size dragon, there should be another balance so it does not make the elytra obsolete, like a stamina bar similar to the hunger or air bars that a player gets, and it only recharges when fed or resting, and to add to that, there should be a synthetic environment that the player has to create for the dragon to rest and heal (i.e. a bed of end stone or obsidian) the food source for the dragon should be chorus fruit seeing as in the game now there is no real use for the fruit other than for messing around. Breeding of dragons shouldn't be implemented, to balance the number of dragons there are, making it so you have to get a new egg each time you want another. There should also be a challenge or quest added to hatching the dragon, and I think with the new nether update, the nether would be the perfect place to do it, making you have to go to the end for the egg, the isles for the food, the nether to hatch it, and finally have it nest in the overworld, adding a lengthy adventure to acquire such a prized creature

    Getting a pet dragon should be an achievement
