Dogs are domesticated canines. Fairly small dogs can weigh between 20 to 50 pounds in weight. Dogs generally hunt in packs, chasing and exhausting prey until they can drag it down. They can jump fairly well, and survive well when tracking by scent.{{Cite|MGWS|9}}
 
 
In ''[[World of Warcraft]]'', a number of creatures share the appearance and/or role of dogs. In particular, the [[hunter]]s of many races can tame wolves and associated beasts for use as [[pet]]s or tracking hounds. Darkhounds are in fact [[demon]]ic dogs, and are used as guard dogs by the [[Dark Iron dwarves]] in [[Blackrock Depths]].

A wolf and a darkhound.

Canines are carnivorous predators that usually hunt in packs, but if found alone, usually have other canines nearby. They vary in size from a several pounds to several hundred pounds, and most wild canines aggressively attack nearby threats. Most canines can swim, but rarely do, and are not strong swimmers.
