'Game Of Thrones' Star Peter Dinklage Wants Fans To Stop Doing This One Thing
Fierce, loyal and fluffy AF, there's no doubt that direwolves are one of the coolest mythical creatures to come out of Game of Thrones.
...But IRL, they don't make such a good pet.
Since Game of Thrones premiered in 2011, animal shelters and rescues have apparently seen a rise in the number of abandoned husky dogs.
That's why actor Peter Dinklage AKA Tyrion has teamed up with PETA to urge fans not to buy huskies.
"Please, to all Game of Thrones' many wonderful fans, we understand that due to the direwolves' huge popularity, many folks are going out and buying huskies," Dinklage says.
"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 understand of their needs."

"Please, please, if you're going to bring a dog into your family, make sure that you're prepared for such tremendous responsibility and remember to always, ALWAYS, adopt from a shelter," he added.
Apparently, nearly six million dogs and cats are left at animal shelters each year and half of them are euthanised.
Adoption can help save lives!
