You know that D&D used to have dire moose?Or modern day moose, those things are massive
There are more factors to domestication. Is it practical to domesticate an animal? Can you keep and feed it? Is it useful?I wonder if D&D humanoids have domesticated and bred dire wolves into canine variants. Nothing combines "chic" with "effective home defense" quite like a properly-groomed dire poodle.
Feeding a dire wolf can become a problem for many people.
