Savage Earth: Cold Moon
Hemicyon the so-called “dog-bear,” literally “Half Dog” is an active hunter and a good runner, hunting on the plains in packs. Hemicyon is about 1.5 metres (5 ft) long, and 70 centimetres (28 in) tall, with somewhat tiger-like proportions and dog-like teeth. Unlike true bears, Hemicyon walked on its toes, giving it greater speed than other dogs or bears.
as a well developed pack animal, Dog-bears are popular among beast masters and hunters and they can be tamed if raised from infancy. As hyper predators they can be highly danerous when encountered int he wild and often grow used to standard means of warding them away such as torches, guard dogs and fences.
