What breed was he before he was a monster?
I think he may have been a German Shepherd but i'm not really sure.
I think i may have read somewhere that said what breed he was but
don't really remember.
ZackThePuppy
I always assumed he was a German shepherd. I think he had lion DNA or something injected into him to get his giant mane, lol.
GoldenPuma
I thought he a some hound. I thought it was mentioned in the anime.
I could be wrong.
Gingastar
I always thought he was a German shepherd ^^ Someone should have asked Yoshi when he was in Finland huh.gif (then again lots of other people where asking questions to, so it was probably hard to get picked to ask him a question)
GNG
I'm pretty sure he was a German Shepherd. His markings and colour are very similar to the other German Shepherds in GDW.
Jenny
Maybe a Leonberger? XD
Kasi
I've also always considered him a German Shepherd. The markings on his face were pretty exclusive to Yoshi's German Shepherd designs at the time.

Agree with Kasi

But interesting thought Jenny, the mane could be a Leonbergerish smile.gif

I do own one wink.gif
And the colors are like P4....
Hmm maybe a crossbreed/ mutt?

or.... its a MANGA! kaibutsu.gif ph34r.gif sweat.gif
wolfie
And I have had one also or well replacement dog ;D Pure breed


So I think still a German one or perhaps a mix^^

Hmm but I have this pic on Harley ( German/Leon)
Cant find photo on the pure breed oneT-T
Rusty
Maybe he's a Shepherd/Tibetan Mastiff mix with giantism xD
CoffieDog
(wasn't there already a topic on this?) o-o

I agree with the others, I always thought he was a german shepherd, maybe mixed.
The Lioness
I also believe that Kaibutsu was a breed of German Shepherd, with possibly just a furrier coat before it all happened, and they did lion injections to get his powerful body to grow and his mane grew bigger?

Here a deviant art member draws what they think Kaibutsu looked like before the injections.

huh.gif That looks more like a chow in the face and with the furry neck.
He could have been a Chow shepherd mix.
ember
I always thought he was a German Shepherd...a large German Shepherd.
Mastersdoggy
For some reason I always thought of like a Chow/GSD cross.
Kurojaki
I think he could've been either:

A King Shepherd (Most likely)

or a Shiloh Shepherd (Probably...)

Just keep in mind that he had a bit different markings in the manga.

I also think he was a German Shepherd or some mix of it.
RedTheAkita
I agree with Kurojaki, he looks like a King German Shepherd to me.
Capt. Snugglebottom
I always (much like several others) thought he was a Shepherd breed/Mix of some sort D:
caninesrock
I highly doubt he's a King Shepherd or Shiloh Shepherd as those are relatively new and unknown breeds. Yoshi isn't in the habitat of having characters that are rare breeds.

I'm going to go with that he's probably either a:

Long-haired German Shepherd:

Belgian Shepherd is very possible option. They have dark face markings, just like Kaibutsu in manga.

True,but the German Shepherds can have dark faces too though.
Troll Berserker
Yep, but even with darker face markings, Yoshi never draws GSD with markings shaped like Kaibutsu's.
Darkedr-san
I think that P4 is GSD mix.

May be with akita-inu... o.o
Havok
I'm going to have to go with GSD. Out of the breeds Yoshi prefers to use, it seems the most viable option.

Well,he made Lydia and she wasn't his usual german shepard markings.
ember
I always thought of him as a German Shepherd or German Shepherd mix.
Gingastar
I always thought he was a GSD or GSD mix wink.gif Someone should ask Yoshi when he goes to Finland.
Rottenwolfen
I think Kaibutsu is German Shepherd or Akita Shepherd
Azura
Wasn't there information about him somewhere that said he was an Akita?

Either way, I always thought he was a German Shepherd.
Arano
I'll post this here as well:

He is a nondescript mix of Japanese Dog. He's not meant to look like a breed:

QUOTE
和犬の雑種 < Kaibutsu's breed from the Weed book.
The kanji is for "Dog of Japan" (+mix). This is just what dogs in Japan were called before they were separated into breeds; the generic Japanese dog before classification (important note: although it's tempting to say it, 'original' dog is an incorrect term for this because it wasn't one breed that many stemmed from, it was a term for the group of dogs before they were separated into small [Shiba], medium [Shikoku], large [Akita] etc).

Using the generic term for these characters and also saying they're a mix is great come to think of it! Because with Tesshin especially you're meant to believe that he is an old breed due to the Koga clan. Kaibutsu... eh, maybe it was a simple escape route so they could pay attention to his design rather than "what breed he should look like." I guess making a character generic gives you more freedom in terms of design, because as long as they look like a Japanese dog, no-one can really argue can they haha.

Essentially it means you can base him on any breed you think he looks like, as long as he looks like/retains the features of a Japanese dog.
Azura
Oh okay. Thank you for clarifying that.

I read that yesterday, I think. When I think about it, Kaibutsu kind of looks like a Kai-ken, if you look at the face markings. Example:



Kaibutsu:

Would say that he maybe was a Shepherd breed , hes mouth is really much i think a Shepherds .

We already clarified what he was. From what I remember, he was just any Japanese dog. No exact breed.

@ GNG Yeah I never noticed that. Even though your post is old....
Kagetora
As many others already said, I think he is some german shepherd mixed with something else.
I actully felt sorry for Kaibutsu. I can understand his hatred though he may have overreacted a little by eating the humans

Well, he had gone insane, after all.


He looks like a Shepherd for me, too.

Yes, we already know what he is, but here's some pics of him from the time when he was more like an ordinary dog. It's easier to see his features now than when he's a giant with a mane (though, as you can see, the mane has already started to grow here).

Yeah I agree that he does.

They shouldn't have made him GSD like if he wasn't though.
