While I'm still very much in questioning stage with this, I've been questioning on my connection with and sense of self as a hellhound for a fair while. I'm never sure if it's closer to a kintype, a 'link, or just a little spiritual nuance and identity masking of how I experience the self. The demon aspect for me is pretty important alongside the canine-like instincts and such.
We've got different approaches of the hellish aspect I find, which is interesting. For you it sounds to me like it's more of a figurative hellishness, while for me it's a bit more literal in the fire and brimstone and Dante's Inferno, all that fun jazz.
