Why did the anime differ so much from the manga? So many little things were modified. Low budget?

I assume that it has a lot to do with time constraints of anime episodes (episodes which are only around 30 minutes long) + how many episodes there were in GDW. With only 26 episodes both scenes and characters would have to be cut from the manga for the more important scenes/characters and to have the story flow in a way that would get it wrapped up within 26 episodes, while also telling the story smoothly.

A small question, is it ever said that Mari is a saluki?

No, her breed isn't mentioned at all.

I know most of the Hybrid Bear arc hasn’t been translated yet, but one thing that I’m seriously curious about.

In GDW Vol. 57, when the hybrid bear suddenly takes a nap, why are Weed and other dogs sleeping with it?!

Joe says that because they're all tired, they should take a rest too. Because their goal is just to chase Hybrid to the cliff and into the river, not kill it with their fangs, because it's proven to be impossible. As Kyoshiro is suggesting that Weed should use the Battouga, Weed says that he isn't sure he could kill it with one blow, and Jerome says that Battouga with halved power is more dangerous to Weed than it would be to the enemy. And after that we get to learn more of the bear hound superiority by the narrator: "their most remarkable ability is to control their bodies alertness", and so Weed and Joe are able to fall asleep instantly, while others just lay restless.

Thank you for the answer, methpring! Appreciate it! :tfw_bella2:

But still...even to rest themselves...sleeping/resting near a vicious bear for a little bit is really scary and creepy. :tfw_sirius1:
