These larger versions of the corgi live and work in halfling communities. Halflings typically train dire corgis for combat and as riding dogs, rather than as herding dogs, due to their size and relative ferocity. Elite halfling warriors take these creatures as mounts, and it is not uncommon to find a paladin with a dire corgi as a divine steed.
