See Stal (5e Creature).

A stalhound is the animated skeleton of a wolf or other large canine, with glowing orbs in place of its eyes that are capable of seeing in darkness. These monsters are known to arise from the dirt at night, haunting prairies or wide open fields, with even more vicious intent than they bore while alive. These hounds usually hunt in packs of at least two, but rarely more than a dozen. Stalhounds usually only attack living creatures, and thus are occasionally kept or trained by stalfos for various purposes.

Like many stal-creatures, stalhounds do not seem to realize they do not still live. They hunt down caravans, travelers, and other prey in an unsatiable hunger; even though their skeletal forms have no need to eat. Unlike many undead, they are not inherently evil, as much like living wolves they lack the mental facilities for alignment.
