One of Farmer Maggot’s dogs

A large wolf-like dog, one of three kept by Farmer Maggot on his farm at Bamfurlong in the Marish. Like Maggot's other dogs, Fang and Wolf, Grip was ferocious by nature, but also completely obedient to his master. Grip was with Maggot when they encountered one of the Ringwraiths searching for 'Baggins', and at that time his obedience and ferocity failed: he yelped in terror and ran from the Nazgûl.
