Wolf-dogs, also called hybrids, are the smallest canine subspecies in the lands of Kells. This rambunctous, loyal bunch are the result of domesticated dogs being released back into the wild in the absence of human kind. Many of them retain traits similar to domesticated breeds but, it is important to note, they still have a large percentage of wolf in their blood compared to domesticated dogs of the human day.
Hybrids are the only subspecies of wolf that does not adhere to the practice of dye or tattoos, although they are often still found wearing items. They retain some of the only lore remembered about human kind and even go so far as to choose more human-like names for themselves, although much of what they retain about the two-leggers is convoluted and more akin to myth by now.
