Juvenile Fern Hounds is a specialized plant-like terrestrial pets created by the Pale Tree that mimics a dog. It can be charmed to become a ranger animal companion and is one of the pets a sylvari can select at character creation.

They are born from the Pale Tree in the same way as a sylvari, but are not sapient like the sylvari. These animals are seen by sylvari in the same way dogs are seen by humans; they are cherished pets.
