Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

It seems that ufologist Luis Santos indicated that in Porto Alegre, Brazil, in 1955, during the night, someone was awaked by her howling dog.

Opening the window to look, she was amazed to see a horrifying creature that frightened her, she described it as a biped black hairy creature, resembling a wolf, that looked right at her while grunting in a threatening manner.

The creature seemed to drag itself when it moved away in the undergrowth where it was lost from sight.

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Porto Alegre, Brazil, in 1955, at night, the witness was awakened by the sounds of her dog howling. Opening the window to look she was stunned to see a horrifying creature that frightened her. She described it as a bipedal black hairy creature, resembling a wolf. It was looking straight at her making a threatening growling sound. It seemed to drag itself as it walked away into the brush disappearing from sight.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Luis Santos, Fenomeno Brazil.

Points to consider:

I would only be astonished if this meager story of the sight of some threatening animal, by night, at an unknown distance, by a witness we know nothing about, were to be found really of high strangeness.
