StarCluster 4 - Out of the Ruins - NeoDogs

So, NeoDogs. I was originally going to have only one kind of dog uplift in StarCluster 4 - Out of the Ruins, but... Dogs are so... Malleable. Protean. Klaxon convinced me to open that up. All NeoDogs are the same species, but they voluntarily create breeds - or most of them do. More on that later. Breeds emphasize one aspect of the dog so they become very different. We went for six breeds - Two big dogs - English Mastiffs and Irish Wolfhounds, two medium breeds - Malamutes and Border Collies, and two small breeds - Terriers and Corgis. Each one has a separate species sheet.

Now for the 'almost all' bit. Some NeoDogs refuse to breed this way. They have become a separate people. Still NeoDogs, but refusing to play the past of the faithful companion to New Humans, insisting on breeding naturally, going their own way. This seventh non-breed are called - in accordance with the Tolkien theme - Wargs. Wargs are mutts - tending to the median, the wolfish unspecialized dog look. Wargs are fiercely independent, and make no compromises.

Here's a Terrier NeoDog for your enjoyment!
