A hell hound is a hound from Hades (The Greek god of the underworld). It is from many cultural backgrounds, but its most remembered from Greek mythology. A hell hound is a dog of Hell, found in mythology, Folklore and its also seen in fiction. Hell hounds typically have features such as black fur color, glowing red eyes, super strength and/or speed, ghostly or phantom characteristics, and sometimes even the ability to talk. Hell hounds are often associated with the element of fire and may have fire-based abilities and appearances, Hell hounds appear out of nowhere suddenly and have been known to vanish in a blink of an eye. They are often assigned to guard the entrances to the world of the dead, such as graveyards and Indian burial grounds, or undertake other duties related to the afterlife or the supernatural, such as hunting down lost souls or guarding a supernatural treasure. There is a legend, it tells that if one happened to see the hellhound three times, he or she will die an abrupt and unseen death.
The most famous hell hound is Cerberus, who guards the entrance to the under world. He has three heads, a tail or mane (depends on version of myth) of snake(s), and is tall enough to make men feel like ants. Cerberus also has a brother, Orthrus, who has two heads. And what else? They were said to bring the souls of the dead or dying to Hades. It is said that hell hounds have the ability to shadow travel, the ability to travel through shadows. Hell hounds are considered evil because they work for Hades/Devil.

hi i have seen something that i'm pretty sure is a hellhound of some sort and have no idea if it is a bad thing or not. while i was 7months pregnant with my son, i was going to the bathroom and i turned my head to see a large dog that stood about 4 and a half feet at the shoulders. he was solid black, had huge teeth, was foaming at the mouth, red eyes, black hair that was about 4 inches long and looked like it was matted with grease. he looked like a mix between a wolf and a german shephard. it came up to me, stared me in the eyes for over a minute then turned around walked out of the bathroom and disappeared. i saw the same dog when i was 4 months pregnant with my daughter only this time it seemed to smile at me (if they can smile) then it turned and left again. now anytime i am in a dark room i see him and anytime i am driving my car at night i see him it takes a lot of concentration to not swerve and crash. when i am driving he is running down the road towards me and then runs up onto the hood of my car all the while staring me in the eyes then disappears. my (now 2 year old) son sees him too. when i see the dog jj starts screaming like someone is killing him and falls on the floor shaking in fear. after the dog leaves jj climbs in my lap and will repeatedly say "bad doggy, bad doggy" so i know i'm not crazy if my son who is 2 can see the thing too.so my questions are, is this thing trying to kill me or what is going on? what is this thing, and is it capable of causing harm to my son? how do i make this thing go away? i really need help so any info at all would be appreciated. thnx
