SPECIES INTRODUCTION

Bush hounds are a forest-dwelling canine species that have been blessed with a touch of magic. They typically have some form of natural woodland growth around their necks and hind legs, the type and density of which can vary. This growth is often shimmery, and emits a soft glow that is more easily seen at night. Because of this they are often referred to as 'forest spirits', and for many years it was believed that they resided over and protected the territory in which they lived. While this has never been scientifically proven, a forest that Bush Hounds reside within will always seem to thrive. People do not openly approach these creatures, who in return don't bother them. There have been reports of lost campers being approached by a soft light and, upon following it, will find their way back to the main path.

These creatures can be found in almost any kind of habitat, apart from deserts and beaches, although they can reside in coastal forests near the ocean. They do not live in open areas like fields, and if you do see one in an open space, it may be looking for a new home. Deforestation has forced many Bush Hounds to search for new territory, causing many people to rally together and conduct protests in their defence. Some areas have been placed under government protection to provide a safe home for these canines, as many believe they play a crucial part in a forests eco system. Action was once taken to re-home at-risk Bush Hounds but, due to the stress of moving and being placed in unfamiliar territory, their foliage began to wilt and they became unwell. This plan was soon scrapped, and the remaining animals were taken back.

Often a Bush Hound's coat and foliage will indicate where it is from. Grey and/or white fur means that they are from a snowy biome, and their berries will often be blue or purple in colour. Just as a brown coat with green leaves means that they could be from an oak or pine forest, and quite often their berries will be quite bright. The kind of leaf can help to identify the country they originated from, as can the type of mushroom. However, this is not always the case, and odd colors may pop up now and again. Because of their connection with magic, it is also completely normal for a Bush Hound to produce 'abnormal' fur colors. In saying this, natural coat colors are still more common.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Bush hounds are quite a relaxed closed species. Thanks to the lovely Bean_Cake, this species has come with many premade variations, which should make it easier for people to customize their own customs and MYO's.

Because of this, I believe that purchasing customs and MYO'S should also be more casual. There will be two types: standard and complex. A standard ticket means you may customize your Bush Hound with only the premade lines available. A complex ticket will allow you (or an artist) to add custom line edits, which would come under either minor or major. At this point in time each line edit will have a price depending on which category it comes under. However, this is still a work in progress, so I'd love public opinion.

REGARDING LORE

Let it be known that, while being a relaxed species, there are a few guidelines in regards to lore that I'd like to be kept. The main thing is that Bush Wolves are wild animals, and I'd like them to be kept that way. They are a feral species, and do not often have interaction with humans. They can live in groups or as loners, that would be owners choice, but they do not do things that would be more commonly thought of as 'human' activities. This includes things such as attending a school, having a job, living in a house, etc.

Also, in regards to their colouring, I would prefer them to be more 'natural' than not. No bright pinks, neon yellows, etc. However, this only applies to coat colour; their leaves and berries can be any colour. Softer unnatural colours (blueish, pinkish, etc) are allowed.
