Skeletal hounds (including hell hounds and fel wolves) are tamable by hunters as part of the hound family. They are classed as undead beasts; only undead hunters can tame them by default while hunters of other races must first learn the skill from a Inv offhand pvp330 d 02 [Simple Tome of Bone-Binding].
