Thanks for all the input on my last ?. Now I have two more. First what do you think about using animal growth spell on my 3e young green dragon cohort? Next ? Is because he is an intelligent animal can he wear or use magic items? Rings? Neckless?
Animal Growth will not, and should not, work on a dragon of any kind.  I almost wonder if you read your thread about having a young greed dragon as a cohort for an 11th-level character.

Yes, a dragon can use magic items with rings and necklaces both being definite yeses.  When creating a monster it is important that you determine its treasure, even if random, before the encounter so that it can use anything beneficial such as a magic ring.
 
So what is the reason for animal growth not to work on a dragon?
I did read it but it go so far on topic it was hard to keep up

Quite simply, a dragon is not an animal.

That works thank you
Animal Growth only works on creatures with the 'animal' type.  Dragons have the type 'dragon'.
For example I could say a some Barbarian is an animal but that doesn't mean he is of the animal type.  Similarly there are some creatures that have a "type" that may not always be obvious; if you ever see someone use Enlarge Person on a half-dragon they are violating the rules as Enlarge Person only works on a humanoid TYPE creature and not a dragon type creature even if the dragon has a humanoid shape.

@Zenalf, I suspect you did not read the thread about your young green dragon cohort is because it went on to say that it is too powerful to have.  I acknowledged that DotF listed it as a 9th-level cohort but that was early in 3.0's run before people understood things better; in 3.5 that same dragon counts as a 16th-level character.
I do understand that but as I am playing 3.0 and more importantly my dm has agreed to it I'm surly not giving him up

You're probably hoping he stays away from here as well until you can use the dragon to blow up the game assuming that it isn't already a game of rocket tag.

I do, however, have one last lesson on this subject. That last one? The only build in this post that can one-shot average opponents[by dealing twice as much damage as they have HP? I would argue that it is not optimized. Why isn't it optimized? Because it's overkill. Overkill is NOT optimizing. This means that there are portions of this build dedicated to damage which can safely be removed and thrown elsewhere. For example, you probably don't need both Leap Attack AND Headlong Rush at the same time. You could pick up Extra Rage feats for stamina, feats to support AoO effects, feats that work towards potential prestige classes, and so on. However, you could also shift our ability scores around somewhat. I mean, if you're getting results like that with 16 starting Strength, maybe you can lower it to 14, and free up four points to spend somewhere else - perhaps back into Charisma, giving you some oomph for Intimidating Rage or Imperious Command if you want. You can continue to tune this until it deals "enough" damage - and that "enough" does not need to be "100%". It could easily be, say, 80% (leaving the rest to the team), if your DM is the sort who would ban one-hit killers.
