Peter Dinklage Makes Plea To GoT Fans

Game of Thrones wiki

Game of Thrones fans likely remember the recent death of the wolf that plays Ghost, Jon Snow's direwolf​, and the sadness that nearly matched that of Hodor's death.

Direwolves reappeared this season when Arya was surrounded by a pack of them in the woods on her way back to Winterfell, and recognized one of them as her childhood wolf, Nymeria.

Let's be honest - what fan has not watched the show and wanted a direwolf of their very own?

A recent spike in husky adoptions has been credited to the HBO series, as the dogs closely resemble the direwolves of the show; but with this rise in adoptions has come a huge increase in abandoned huskies, as owners are not prepared to raise the dogs once the novelty of owning a "direwolf" has worn off.

Peter Dinklage, actor of Tyrion Lannister, went public on the issue in an interview with PETA, in which he stated:

"Not only does this hurt all the deserving homeless dogs waiting for a chance at a good home in shelters, but shelters are also reporting that many of these huskies are being abandoned - as often happens when dogs are bought on impulse, without understanding their needs."

​Huskies are big animals who need proper care a commitment; they are not the type of breed to be content with curling up on the couch all day (even if you leave GoT running on the television for them).

"Please, please, if you're going to bring a dog into your family, make sure that you're prepared for such a tremendous responsibility and remember to always, always, adopt from a shelter."
