I am a buccaneer and I got a dog pirate Lucky Jack Russell from the Presidio quest. Other buccaneers I've talked to said they got a crab named Jethro. Was it a mistake that I got the dog instead?

Which Presidio companion you get is based on how you chose that your parents died when you were building your pirate.
If you chose Mutiny you get Dead Mike-Undead Pirate
If you chose Shipwrecked you get Jack Russell-Dog Pirate
If you chose Armada you get Gaspard de Vole-Guinea Pig Guard
If you chose Storm you get Milo Greytail-Rat Brigand
If you chose Squid you get Birgus Latro-Crab Thug

So you must have chosen that your parents died in a shipwreck.

It isnt a mistake. At the beginning of the game when you chose how your parents died and some of your background the game from this decides what companions you will get. Some companions go to everybody, others are decided by your class, but some like your presidio companion are decided by your back story. This is how even if you have two pirates of the same class you can have different companions.

Nope, it wasn't a mistake. You get your Presidio companion based on how you chose you were orphaned.
I'm guessing you picked Shipwrecked, and your friends with the crab picked Sky Squid.
Both are great companions!

Ok thank you so much for explaining! Everyone I asked said it was decided by class not by how your parents died thanks!
