You were hoping your trufwolf would grow out of its more annoying habits, but alas, your adult wolf doesn't even bother pretending anymore that it's not the one running off with your left shoe and either chewing it up or hiding it. Its shedding has also gotten much, much worse as it grew larger - there are awkward brown stains all over everything you own these days. It still begs you for scritches, though, and will bring you the things it's hidden in exchange for sweets, so you can never seem to stay mad at it for very long.
It's unclear how dire trufwolves came to be - they hatch from eggs that are indistinguishable from chocolate truffles, and look and smell as if they are made from chocolate despite feeling soft and fluffy just like other wolves. These traits lead to speculation that dire trufwolves are created rather than a naturally occurring species, but no account of their creation has ever been found, and magi can't explain why anyone would create such a purposefully obnoxious species. Dire trufwolves delight in stealing and hiding their companion's items, especially when that item is one of a pair. They also shed everywhere, the fur turning into long, sticky, melty chocolate strands all over everything - but strangely, hair that is brushed off or clipped merely feels and acts like regular wolf fur, foiling any attempts to make use of this trait. Still, they're so cuddly and sweet in both disposition (aside from the tendency to steal and hide things) and smell that magi often find having one as a companion worth the hassle.
