Faithful Hounds are unusually tough, ethereal large Dogs that have been trained to protect a location or their summoner. This spell only summons Faithful Hounds that have been trained to obey commands in the caster's native language. They can understand the usual types of commands that dogs are often taught, with a few small changes.

When told to stay, they'll guard the immediate area and attack anything larger than a house cat that isn't obviously their summoner or one of their summoner's allies. In other words, they'll attack any creature they haven't seen hanging around with their summoner.

When told to follow, they'll follow their summoner as quietly as possible. They make very little noise to begin with (they do not breathe) and are quite good at staying silent when needed. If their summoner is injured in any way, they'll immediately attack the source of injury or otherwise attempt rescue unless their summoner tells them to stop. Faithful hounds have been known to drag an unconscious summoner across long distances to get them medical treatment.

When told to guard, they'll follow and defend their summoner with their life, treating anyone that isn't a known friend of the summoner as a potential enemy, growling when they come near and attacking if they make any sudden moves.

They're also able to follow such commands as sit, down, etc., but the result of an invisible, intangible dog sitting down is often of limited utility. However, fetch can be quite entertaining.
