Crocotta

The Crocotta is a mythical dog-wolf creature from India. The Crocotta can simulate Human speech, and picks up the name of the person to the door and then tear him to shreds.

The Crocotta is as brave as a Lion, about the size of a donkey, with a stag's haunches, a Lion's neck, tail and breast, badger's head, cloven hoof, mouth opening right back to the ears, and ridges of bone in place of rows of teeth.
