Hound of Sauron

From Tolkien Gateway

The "Hound of Sauron" was the name given by Gandalf to one of the leaders of the Wargs that attacked the Fellowship in Hollin.

History

On 13 January T.A. 3019, after Gandalf confronted him, the wargs under him leapt upon the Fellowship with their leader. While the so called "Hound of Sauron" was killed, it is unclear who he was killed by as, during the attack, Aragorn stabbed “one huge leader”, while Boromir decapitated another leader, and “the heart of a great wolf-chieftain” was pierced by Legolas's last arrow, kindled by fire.[1]
