Peter Dinklage and PETA ask people not to buy huskies just because they resemble Game of Thrones direwolves.
“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,” Dinklage said Tuesday in a statement released by PETA.
Direwolves play a big role in the Game of Thrones show, representing the house of Stark. Huskies are awesome dogs who require a lot of care, grooming, exercise. And even though Dinklage is not discouraging people to buy the dogs but asks them to just be sure they are prepared for taking care of the dog.
“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,” he said.
