Its statistics, other than its AC, are the same in each form. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying isn't transformed.

Multiattack (Apostle Form Only). The apostle makes two attacks: one with its bite and one with its claws.
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 5 piercing damage in humanoid form, or 11 (2d6 + 4) piercing damage in apostle form.

A relatively common form of apostle, every hound apostle was once a normal human, but was turned when, in their darkest moment, they sacrificed the person closest to them to the God Hand, gaining power considered immense to humanity, but pitiful to other apostles.
