A Durzog (ESO)

Durzogs, sometimes called sludgepuppies,[1] are carnivorous animals not dissimilar to giant reptilian dogs. They have scaly skin, six eyes, spines and large teeth designed for tearing. Some wild durzogs can spread Rotbone.[2] They are often domesticated by the various goblin tribes for hunting, although their own intelligence can rival that of their handlers.[1][3] They have a heightened sense of smell, which causes them to seek harpy viscera.[4]

When durzogs migrate, the seeds of durzog lichen get stuck between their toes and germinate in areas that they once inhabited.[4] Goblins will occasionally use durzog hide in leather armor,[5] and frozen durzog liver is used in Orcish cuisine.[4] They are intelligent creatures and formidable foes, though they are not very durable in battle.[1] Durzogs have a reputation for being ornery and vicious.[6] With this in mind, goblins have been known to train war durzogs.[7][8]

Snow Durzogs are pale-skinned, feathered durzog species that are know to dwell in cold climates, such as in Wrothgar.[9] Emberthroat Durzogs ares bred for their wicked intelligence by the Netch Gouger goblins of Vvardenfell, quite possibly outwitting them, and only those with nimbler minds keep their loyalty as pets.[10] Durzog ivory has a few practical uses[11], and durzog hide has seen use in fashion products.[12] Durzog meat is valued for its alchemical properties. Durzogs can make loyal pets if a handler establishes firm boundaries with them.[13]
