Version 0.21: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.

Canines are common scavengers and hunters found all throughout Crawl. While they are among the weaker monsters you'll find, they are all faster than the average character and usually run in packs. They can mostly be found in the Dungeon and the Lair (especially in the hound-themed Lair ending), though a couple varieties can be found in more exotic locations. Many of them can be summoned with the spell Call Canine Familiar.

Canine Types

h Jackal.png Jackal - Low-level scavengers that inhabit the early Dungeon. Individually weak, but a pack can bring down a newbie adventurer if they catch him out in the open.

h Hound.png Hound - Swift, solitary dogs found in the earlier portions of the Dungeon. Quite delicious.

h Wolf.png Wolf - Fast creatures found in wild places, as well as in the company of Grum.

h Warg.png Warg - Huge, bestial wolves who live in the Orcish Mines with their orcish masters. Resistant to poison.

h Hell hound.png Hell hound - Demonic, fire-breathing dogs found mostly in and around the Hells. Occasionally appear elsewhere, such as with Azrael.

h Raiju.png Raiju - Abyssal wolves that can transform themselves into bolts of lightning and lunge through prey.

h Doom hound.png Doom hound - Grim hunting hounds of Tartarus, their howls call down deathly hunters on trespassers.

Retired Canines
