Ghoul Hound Hero (3pp)

This broken, misshapen creature was once human. Now it resembles little more than a diseased, undead animal.

Charging Trip (Ex)

A ghoul hound that hits with its bite after making a charge attack on all fours can attempt to trip its opponent (+4 bonus). This trip does not provoke attacks of opportunity.

Diseased Pustules (Ex)

When a ghoul hound takes damage from a piercing or slashing weapon, some of its boils rupture, squirting the attacker with puslike fluids. The noxious secretions act as stinking cloud, except they only target that creature. The effect lasts 1d4 rounds.

Feed (Su)

Every time a ghoul hound makes a successful bite attack, it feeds on its opponent's flesh and gains 5 temporary hit points. The festrog cannot have more than 5 temporary hit points gained by this ability at one time.

Four-Footed Run (Ex)

A ghoul hound can run on all fours at speed of 40 feet if it doesn't hold or carry anything in its hands. When running on all fours, it is treated as if it had the Run feat.
