The deerhound only appeared once; whengets up in a tree after her , a pack of deerhounds showed up, searching for food. The deerhound eventually found her when she accidentally knocked a pine cone to the ground, the creatures barking up the tree to get her. However, eventually, they were scared off by a large .
As the name implies, they possess both physical traits of the deer and the dog. They obtain the body structure and hooves from the deer, while retaining the head and patterns from a husky-like dog.
