Nether Hound is a Mob Infusion added by the Thaumic Horizons mod. It can be applied to Wolf. The resulting creature looks like a red Wolf with red eyes and will protect the player like a normal Wolf but will also attack with a beam of fiery projectiles like from Wand Focus: Fire. These projectiles will deal no damage but will set the enemy on fire. The creature itself is immune to fire and Lava. 2 of these creatures can be bred together, but the baby animal born will be a normal Wolf.

Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]

"Taming wolves took courage, but they eventually proved to be loyal companions. Now you can reward their faithfulness by improving their abilities in several ways.

The simplest of these transformations creates a capable underwater combatant which you have dubbed the seawolf. Equally comfortable breathing air or water, and as agile beneath the waves as on dry land, this dog is well-equipped to protect its master from whatever lurks in the depths.

Many legends speak of villagers cursed to transform into wolves under the full moon. Though you haven't discovered any evidence to substantiate these werewolf rumors, your experiments confirm that wolves possess a mystic connection to the lunar cycle.

Your second canine infusion amplifies this natural phenomenon, granting a tamed wolf the ability to draw vis from the moon at night. It has no ability to contain this energy for long, however, so you will need to stand nearby while holding the wand you wish to charge. This process also works with a worn amulet of vis storage.

Multiple lunar wolves in close proximity can charge your gear much more quickly.

Finally, by infusing a tamed wolf with infernal energies, you can produce the deadly nether hound. Not only does this guard dog possess a vicious bite and immunity to heat, but it is capable of exhaling a jet of primal fire upon its enemies.

It remains surprisingly friendly."
