Peter Dinklage Wants to Save the Direwolves and Needs ‘GoT’ Fans’ Help
Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage, aka Tyrion Lannister, knows huskies look a lot like direwolves, but he really wants fans to stop adopting them.
Why would Dinklage ever want to keep us from adopting puppies? According to PETA, Thronies are buying huskies, naming them after their favorite GoT characters and then leaving them at shelters or abandoning them once they realize how much care and commitment the dogs require.
Dinklage partnered with the animal advocacy group to release a call-to-action statement asking fans to be more thoughtful in their pet purchases. Khaleesi's right-hand man reasoned, “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.”
There’s only one thing to do: Pull a Leslie Knope and adopt ALL of the animals from every local shelter.
