One of the new Regional variants in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a Hisuian variant of the fan-favorite Arcanine. Hisuian Arcanine is different from regular Arcanine primarily in its typing. Hisuian Arcanine is a Fire and Rock-type rather than a sole Fire-type like its original form. Hisuian Arcanine will evolve Hisuian Growlithe (using a Fire Stone).
