|Keeper's Hunting Dog|
These beasts are dogs heavily corrupted by the eldritch magic of the Chalice Dungeons: their heads are attached to an almost reptilian neck, and also sport two ram-like horns, beady red eyes, and a long prensile tongue. They are extremely large, larger than any other canine enemy.
They frequently lunge themselves at players and are capable of breathing fire.
These are without doubt, the most dangerous canine enemies in-game and should be approached with the utmost care.
By far the most dangerous type of dogs in-game, they will attack in a group of two, and even worse, they often do so in company of the Keeper that owns them, or with other enemies in the same area.
As such, players should make these enemies a high priority target, their extreme damage output is too dangerous to take any chances with them. If the need arises, making an escape to an already cleared section of the Chalice Dungeon may be the best course of action as these are enemies that will aggro on the player for very long, while most others are not, allowing you to more easily deal with this threat.
Using stronger weapons that can stagger and/or grant hyper-armor is advised, as these dogs are relentless.
- Very rarely in the Loran chalice dungeons, they will be lead around by a Silverbeast instead of the normal Keeper of the Old Lords.
- There are three more kinds of dog enemies in game:
- Their warped body and long tongues make them reminiscent of the Hounds of Tindalos invented by the writer Frank Belknap Long and mentioned by H. P. Lovecraft in the story The Whisperer in Darkness.
