Guard Hound is an enemy in Final Fantasy VII. It is a short-tailed, panther-like canine with a whip-like projection sticking from its back. It is encountered in Sector 1, in a set battle in Church in the Slums, and in the north section of the Train Graveyard. It is also a possible encounter in the opening round of the Battle Square before obtaining the Tiny Bronco. In the Battle Square, it has enhanced stats with double the normal HP and 25% higher Attack and Magic Attack.
Guard Hound always uses its two attacks on the party member who has the lowest current HP. It is not a strong enemy and should not be a problem.
