The statistics presented here describe fairly small dogs such as terriers. They also can be used for small wild canines such as coyotes, jackals, and African wild dogs.

A wild dog resembles a small wolf and is leery of humans.

Skills: Dogs receive a +8 racial bonus to Survival checks when tracking by scent.


Wild dogs fight as an organized pack. They favor small game, and attack humans and human habitations only in times of great hunger.
