If he can somehow find the King of Fire Giants they are likely to have 1-2 Red Dragons and 1d8 Hellhounds with them. Perhaps doing a favor for them will grant you a couple hours of time with one of their pets. That is of course if he isnt killed by the giants.
This is all avoided by the use of a Wish spell.
