Shadow mastiffs was a massive shadow dog.[2]


Shadow mastiffs were all black, making it very easy for them to blend in with shadows.[3]


The sound of a pack of shadow mastiffs baying caused all but the bravest individuals to tremble.[3]


Shadow mastiff whelps could be sold for 200–500 gp. However, they had to be kept in constant darkness, as bright light could kill them.[3]


It was believed that shadow mastiffs resulted from dogs that were killed by undead shadows and then transported to the Demiplane of Shadow to be with others of their kind.[3]
