Dogs were common domestic animals in Middle-earth. The greatest of them all was Huan, the Hound of Valinor.

In Quenya, the word for "dog" is huo, and the Noldorin cognate of the same meaning is hû.[1]

Dogs are found throughout Middle-earth, espcially in the Shire. Lore-masters can also have a non-combat dog pet.
