Dogs are animals which can be either aggressive or passive depending on their owner or the actions of the Hero. They can often be found with bandits and marauders. They will howl if they find a dead body. They are not the biggest threat to a traveler as they have no resistances, yet they also have no weaknesses. They also don't drop any kind of significant loot. Normally, they bark if any intruders enter the house they are living in, and in the case of Luna and Daisy, they will attack anyone that has a weapon drawn.
