Hellhounds are a mythical species appearing in The Menagerie trilogy.

Camp Underpaw's Guide to Mythical Creatures DescriptionEdit

Hellhounds are oversized black dogs with sulfurous breath and glowing red eyes. Try to avoid their slobber as it can do something bad if it comes in contact with broken skin.

Description Edit

Hellhounds are a creature that appears as a rhino-sized dog that has black fur and red, fiery eyes. Despite their menacing appearance and name, hellhounds can actually be quite friendly. Hellhounds act much like normal dogs, and have a omnivorous diet that uses more protein. Their slobber contains sulfur, and when it comes into contact with more exposed areas on a persons body, such as a cut or through the eyes, it can burn and cause pain.
