The shale dog is a species that has been introduced to Korhal's ecosystem.[1]

Shale dogs were allegedly normal dogs mutated by the Destruction of Korhal, with mutated digestive systems surviving the fallout by eating whatever they could find. They are protected by iron rich fibrous plates, which coat the skin. They have a lapping tongue and yellow fangs.[2]
