Do you like dogs? Let me rephrase that: do you like dogs with human faces on them?

Well, then look no further.

A jinmenken, which roughly translates to "the human-faced dog", is a talking creature that has a human face instead of the typical face of a canine. They have been known to be able to speak and communicate with people. Some believe that they are the results of some sort of botched science experiment, while others think that they are the spirits of a unfortunate event.
