Cooshee, also known as elven dogs, are large dogs only found in the forests and meadows frequented by elves. They are most commonly encountered in the company of elves and rarely on their own. They are quite large, typically weighing between 170 and 200 lbs, with some occasionally reaching up to 300 lbs. Their coat is green with brown spots, and their paws are large with heavy claws. Cooshee usually avoid other dog species.
Loyal Guards & Companions
Elves typically use cooshee as guard animals and hunting companions. This extraordinarily long-lived breed is completely loyal to its elven masters, immediately following any command and unafraid to put itself in danger to defend its master. Cooshee only bark to warn their masters of danger, and their bark can be heard up to a mile away.
