Curbdogs have roots in the Chinese werewolf. Initially bred as protection for the emperor, Curbdogs are known for their extreme intelligence, lustrous coat, and fierce loyalty, but can be vicious when provoked. Curbdogs have very distinctive vocalizations, yet while precise translations of curbdog dialect remain unknown, to the emperor, it is generally described by those that hear it as scruffy, noisy, melodic guitar pop.
