A dog

Dogs are semi-carnivorous mammals that were selectively bred by humans on Earth from their wolf ancestors, and were later transported to the Koprulu Sector by terrans in the 23rd century.

Dogs are common enough in the Sector for "standard" watchdogs to exist.[1] A zerg queen created a strain of infested dogs known as roverlisks during the Battle of Bhekar Ro, from the watchdog Old Blue. However, all the roverlisks were ultimately absorbed by an energy creature.[2]

A species of creatures named the shale dog were rumored to be mutated dogs from the nuclear bombardment of Korhal.[3]
