Well, that's not its name ... but ...

The term "Deer dog" has not been confirmed by official sources.

A deer dog is a chimerical mammal that is kept as a pet in the desert climate of the Misty Palms Oasis. One of these dogs was leisurely sitting on the porch of a house when Mako and Bolin ran past in an attempt to lose Macao and Lily.[1]


The deer dog is a quadruped animal with brown fur going down its back and sides, cream-white fur covering its underbelly, and a lighter shade of brown coloring its tail and muzzle. It has a set of antlers adorning its head.


The body of the deer dog mostly resembles an Appenzeller Sennenhund or a crossbreed of a Rottweiler and a German shepherd, all of which are breeds of domesticated dog. Its antlers resemble those of a type of deer, most notably the white-tailed deer.
