The Cadejo is an phantom dog from the Central America folklore that appear at night to travellers and kill them. Some Guatemalan folklore also tells of a cadejo that guards drunks against anyone who tries to rob or hurt them. Most people say never to turn your back to the creature because otherwise you will go crazy. According to the stories, many have tried to kill the black cadejo but have failed and perished. Also it is said that if a cadejo is killed, it will smell terrible for several days, and then its body will disappear.
