Shuck: A very old English cryptid, with sightings dating all the way back to the 1500s. He’s seen as an omen of death, wandering dark forests and empty roads, although occasionally he simply appears and walks near travellers only to disappear into the mists that follow him. Many red-eyed ghostly dogs have been seen in England for centuries, but Shuck is the only common and named one. Sometimes he’s portrayed with just one eye in the middle of his head or even totally headless.
