Like Anubis, he was a god of death - but rather than passive judge, Wepwawet was an active war god, a hunter. He was always represented with white hounds rather than black like Anubis’s. He was known as the opener of ways and he who went before. He was also called ‘the fastest spear of the pharaoh’. Wepwawet was one of the god’s that was worshiped early in Egyptian mythology, only to eventually be absorbed into the newer god, Anubis’s mythology and disappeared.
