Something that may be useful to some players, here are the companion promotion levels that I have found so far.
Bonnie Anne Lvl 8 and 31
Your starter companion Lvl 13 and 46
Rat beard Lvl 10 and 29
The companion from the Gunn's gold quest line Lvl15 and 37
The Gunn's gold clone companions from the crown shop 17 and ?
Your parents friend (from the presidio) Lvl 21 and 47
Old Scratch Lvl 24 and 34
Fin lvl 27
Nanu Nanu lvl 30
Monquisitor Lvl 30
Stormsinger Lvl 32
Bat winged Valvida brother Lvl 32
Sunfighter Lvl 32
Tricky Vinny Lvl 30
Iago Lvl 38
El Toro Lvl 40
Monquistador explorer Lvl 30

This list is far from complete, but it should give you some idea of when to expect your next companion promotion.

Do you know what level Fa Shen gets promoted on? The ninja pig companion.

From Level 15, Swashbuckler, Smart Daniel Chamberlain.

Sorry, at this point I don't, my primary is a Privateer and most of my information is based on his companions.

The ninja pig is one of the randomly-named companions, so no need to identify it that way. Talkin The Plank is definitely correct for the first promotion, mine got gold-colored armor and new epics at level 17. Shark companion from the Cutthroat Bundle is also 17, and both of them only require 1700 coins to promote, rather than any questing.

Yeah, I realized about the random name thing a few hours after I posted that when I started researching the subject. Oopsie!

-Dark Amber
Mormo for Witch Doctors
Emmet Otter (sorry no jug band) for Privateers
Sarah Steele for Swashbucklers
Louis Labisque for Musketeers
Barnabus for Buccaneers

The monquistador on the list is the crazy one I think
