Hell Hounds

Hell Hounds (Black Dogs, Devil Dogs, Phantom Black Dogs, Fairy Hounds) are supernatural or demonic canines in folklore and myth.

Despite the name, not every Hell Hound is considered evil. Some function as protectors and messengers of other supernatural beings.

The Hell Hounds that do belong to the dark side often appear in terrorizing forms, such as a black dog with incredible strength, glowing eyes, and paranormal abilities. In folklore, the devil often assumes the form of a black dog.

The more neutral members of the class like the fairy hounds generally appear as white dogs with red eyes and one red ear.

Appearance: A black dog with glowing eyes or a white dog with red eyes and one red ear. Some Hell Hounds even appear headless!

Lore: Hell Hounds often guard specific locations, like cemeteries for example, from trespassers. Another location one might meet a Hell Hound is at a deserted crossroads. Hell Hounds are also set loose on individuals who have occurred the wrath of other supernatural beings. Otherwise, a Hell Hound may be a demon or devil in animal disguise.

Powers: appear and disappear at will, super strength and speed, ability to increase in size at will and other assorted paranormal abilities.

What I saw was a 2 story dog bright red fur with a studded caller. My mother just started witch craft with a friend... But I'm not the only one with this story.... It come like a dream so we don't bring it up unless we a telling stories. I thought it was a dream till I met someone else with the same description.

Black dog with glowing orange eyes been seen in house by more than 10 different people over a period of 40 years. Very scrawny, powerful, scruffy black-haired dog with bearded lower chin and pointed alert ears. Has a snout almost like a wolf. Likes to show itself to children and watch them. Tries to sleep on the bed with adults and children (has weight). disappears into thin air. Very loud bang sometimes is heard just before it appears. House is opposite an 8th century graveyard and on a crossroads. Also seen in house is a victorian lady, a floating hand and a very angry man crouched on his haunches down against a wall - I, personally, felt this was the dog in another form. House was burned to the ground in early 18th century and then rebuilt so has been property on the site for a long time. Every who sees the dog is scared of it. It gives the air of being a bad, evil thing? Whatever it its, we do not understand it but know that it is being seen by others to this day.

That is the coolest story I've ever heard. I apologize, I have no recommendations on what it is or if one should be worried, but hands down frighteningly amazing.
