Dog (subspecies name Canis lupus familiaris) also known as hound is a subspecies of the grey wolf (Canis lupus), a member of the Canidae family of the mammilian order Carnivora. The term "domestic dog" is generally used for both domesticated and feral varieties.[1]

Dogs are used in both the wizarding and the Muggle world as pets or guardians. While most normal dogs are generally considered harmless, save those that have been trained or bred for aggressive behaviour, some dogs like the three-headed dog Fluffy are highly dangerous.

Dogs in the wizarding worldEdit

Fluffy

Fluffy the three-headed dog.

In the wizarding world, dogs are kept as pets or may sometimes serve as guardians of certain objects. For example, during the 1991–1992 school year at Hogwarts, the three-headed dog Fluffy guarded the Philosopher's Stone. Once the Stone had been destroyed, Fluffy was set free in the Forbidden Forest. Rubeus Hagrid, Hogwarts gamekeeper also had a boar hound named Fang. The name didn't suit him well as even Hagrid called him a coward.

In Beedle the Bard's fairy tale Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump, the Brigade of Witch-hunters is given a pack of wild hounds.[2] There are also magical subtypes of dogs, such as three-headed dogs, Gytrash and Grim. According to W.O.M.B.A.T., a dog acting suspiciously might be magically-trained. Also, Ron Weasley's Patronus takes the form of a Jack Russell Terrier, a breed of hunting dog common in Great Britain and Ireland.

The Crup is a type of wizard-bred dog that resembles a Jack Russell Terrier, but possesses a forked tail and is loyal only to wizards.[3]

Dogs in the Muggle worldEdit

In the Muggle world, dogs also are kept as companions, being very faithful and, with proper training, can guard valuable objects or people or act as service, rescue and police dogs. Harry Potter's Aunt Marge bred bulldogs and in 1993 when she visited the Dursley house, she brought one of her favourites who was old and rather ill-tempered, named Ripper. Often in the Muggle world, larger dogs are given fierce names to make them seem more ferocious.
