  • Keen Hearing and Smell. The pit terrier has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on hearing or smell.


  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d8 + 2) piercing damage and the target must succeed at a Strength (Athletics) or Dexterity (Acrobatics) contest against the pit terrier’s attack roll or be grappled by the pit terrier. This low-slung dog has a compact, muscular body covered in short fur. Its legs are short and widespread, giving the dog a very low center of gravity. Its head is large and somewhat flat with a pronounced underbite and sharp-looking teeth jutting from the lower jaw.


Pit terriers have been bred as dogs of war. They are fiercely loyal to their masters and will fight to the death to keep their masters from harm. Despite their fierce reputations, in times of peace, pit terriers are as friendly as any other species of dog, making them ideal pets.
