Fluff: The frogdog is a reptilian quadruped that has a body shape and posture similar to that of a stout bulldog. Its face, however, resembles that of its first syllable's namesake, with a wide mouth, deep-set eyes, and a long, dangerous tongue (more on that below). Unlike frogs, however, their mouths are lined with a set of razor-sharp teeth.

The frogdogs are sometimes domesticated and bred as companion animals by kobolds. They may be some sort of evolutionary offshoot from the icy-breathed white dragon, as they possess a pair of cold-generating glands deep in the back of their large necks. These also help modulate their body temperatures, allowing them to live and thrive near extreme heat.

Some frogdogs (10%) derive pleasure from the stimulation of lightning and electricity, much the same way a cat or dog will enjoy being stroked.
