They were muzzled lymers, […] scent trackers with fringed dewlaps and busy, intrusive noses.
Jame's narration, To Ride a Rathorn,
"Chapter XIII: Blood and Ivory", I

The lymer is a breed of scent-tracking dog bred and used by the Kencyrath.[1][2] They are frequently kept muzzled when used. Different lymers are described as white[3] and black,[1] so there is color variation among the breed.

  2. Bound in Blood, "Lexicon" — "lymers: hounds, scent trackers"
  3. To Ride a Rathorn, "Chapter XXI: Loyalty or Honor", VI — "The white lymer crouched to one side, its tracking done, patiently waiting for its reward of fresh entrails."
