Cynocephali

Any equivalent of Cynocephali in the buddhist tradition?

:geek:
...in China a Buddhist missionary, Hui-Sheng, wrote about dog-headed men on an Island to the east of Fusang.
The Greek historian Ctesias, from the fifth century, wrote that on the Indian mountains he saw men with heads of dogs and they did not talk but barked; they had larger teeth than dogs, and claws like animals. They were known to live on raw meat, fruit, and to hunt with bows and arrows.

They traded with the local Indians and sent tributes to the King of India. They lived in caves, wore tanned skins, and all had a tail like a dog’s, only longer.
Homage to you, blissful, virtuous and peaceful,
Enjoy the domain of the tranquil nirvana.
Fully possessing the om and the soha,
You overcome even the greatest of evils.
