List of canines
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.
h Jackal- Low-level pack-hunters 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- Swift, solitary dogs found in the earlier portions of the Dungeon. Quite delicious.
