Cerberus

The three-headed hellhound is quite a popular personage, although he is most often remembered for being dognapped by Hercules in his final labour. The dog was no Fluffy – he only ate the living flesh, thus allowing only the dead spirits to pass through into the Underworld. While he might have had heads and body of a dog, his claws were that of a lion and his mane was made of snakes. He is the offspring of two others monsters on this list. Overall – not recommended as a pet.
