A Dryad is a tree nymph, a female spirit of a tree, in Greek mythology. In Greek drys signifies "oak". Thus, dryads are specifically the nymphs of oak trees, though the term has come to be used for all tree nymphs in general. They were normally very shy, except around the goddess Artemis, who was known to be a friend to most nymphs.

West Highland White Terrier - It is a hardy breed, and can be stubborn leading to issues with training. A Westie may need to have its training refreshed on occasion during its lifetime. Having a typical terrier prey drive, it tends to be highly interested in toys especially chasing balls. It does retain the instincts of an earth-dog, including inquisitive and investigative traits, as well as natural instincts to bark and dig holes.

Fennec fox (Vulpes zerda). Possibly the cutest animal on Earth, but I wouldn't want one for a pet. An undomesticated, nocturnal, desert animal with finnicky eating habits probably wouldn't make a good household pet, regardless of how cute it is.
