The sheep hound was very loyal, intelligent, and fierce. When equipped with a stout armored collar, it was a match for two or three wolves. The Dúnedain also used them for hunting and as guard dogs. Experiments in using them as war-dogs, though, had been failures. A smaller breed, the Huoton Cinta was often seen as a pet for women and children.
