From Dragon Quest Wiki

Red furred fiends formed with two heads that leap and bite at adventurers with surprising speed and strength, snapping with their strong jaws so quickly that they strike several times in a single turn.

The Cerberuff and it's pallet swaps are based on the two-headed dog Orthrus of greek myth. The hound was the guard dog for the cattle pins of the giant Greyon, and was one of the offspring of Echidna and Typhon. It was slain by Hercules as part of the process of completing his Tenth Labor.
