Possessed of a surprising cunning, rosenwulves are large, rangy wolf-like beasts with impressive jaws; their pelts are a thick reddish-brown and laced with long lace-like thorns, and their eyes are a brilliant amber. Rosenwulves roam in small packs, and will stalk chosen prey relentlessly once they have the taste of blood.

Before closing to bite its prey, a rosenwulf attacks with long briar-like tendrils that erupt from its thorny hackles. These briars have a length of 10' and cause 2-8 hit points of damage; if both briars successfully hit a singe target that target is entangled in the thorny grasp and the rosenwulf may bite with a +4 to hit. The victim suffers a -2 to all rolls while entangled, and may escape with a successful Strength check or by cutting themselves free.

For some reason, this creature reminds me of the infected sled dog in John Carpenter's The Thing.

Very creepy - I dig it.
