War dogs are strong canines bred and trained for battle. They are fast, have decent HP for their level, and high EV. They're almost always found in packs, and encountering one may indicate the presence of the unique monster Grum nearby. Otherwise, they occasionally appear in the Dungeon and the Lair.
Tips & Tricks
Don't let them get close unless you're decently armoured or can prevent them from swarming you. You probably can't get away, so if you're low-level, use any and all tricks at your disposal (wands, potions, etc.) to take them down before they surround you and put the hurt on you.
