the Junkyard Dog has 2 salvage points, it cannot be
fast and extremely mean, the
Junkyard Dog is a large automated Salvage
Corvette that prowls the Karos Graveyard. It can dart in to
your formation, grab a frigate and escape through a slipgate
before the defenders can put a dent in it.
The Dog is as fast as an attack bomber, and better armored
than a cruiser. It can grab any of your ships -- even a
cruiser or carrier.
It uses the graveyard slipgates to move around, and will
usually take its prey to a specific "lair." The
dog will only steal a few ships and then will become
dormant; you can then re-capture the ships (except for the
one the Dog is clamped on to).
If you fire on the Dog while it is clamed onto a ship in its
lair, it will eventually release and grab another ship. This
is useful only if you hope it will grab a less-expensive
ships than the one it currently has.
The only way to defeat the Junkyard Dog (other than
destroying all the slipgates and chasing him for hours) is
to catch him in a gravity well. Though almost as large as a
frigate, the Dog is still technically a corvette, and
therefore helpless in a gravwell. Once this is accomplished,
he is relatively easy to dispatch.
