I'm not sure how that fits with Tonks and the werewolf, though. Maybe her guardian is just a wolf - the fierce side of Lupin without the darkness? Not sure about that one. I don't think a dark creature could really be a Patronus.
But that was a label society put on them - and on Vampires - and which Umbridge wanted on Centaurs too. That doesn't mean any of these magical creatures were actually 'dark creatures', imo.
