Entry for a contest held by ~orbyss
for a rehash of her Drii creature concept. As usual I did not do what was asked. I'm subversive like that!
You can call him Shaggy and he'll run over to you knock you down and rub himself all over you.
You honestly don't expect to be licked, do you?
Show any semblance of fear and he'll tear out a chunk from you with a quickness.

Rustlemaw is a generic name for a number of closely related species of Driiaican predatory fauna. There are species which form packs and hunt socially. Others are solitary. They are characterized by an extremely mimetic integument (Remember the drii lineage's integument is a living one. So for your own sake don't pull on the fur) which can change color instanly.
The Drii have selectively bread a few of these species together to yield something one could call a "dog" in drii terms.
EDIT: I had a disagreement with ol' Shaggy here over his sorry noisy and poor-framed state. Good thing he's just layers of graphite on a flat cellulose sheet!
