In 1925, Tolkien’s consistently written The Lay of Leithian had a story about Lúthien and Beren, while Huan was pictured as belonging to Celegorm. Huan at that time was described as a mighty animal that had abilities above other dogs.
Huan’s specialty as Celegrom’s pet was unable to create complete trust in him. At the time Lúthien is depicted in a slump. Huan sensed this and began to try to protect him from Curufin’s attacks. Curufin is an Elf who has one of the three gifts in speaking to invite Lúthien to save Beren.
