Peter Dinklage AKA Tyrion Lannister in HBO’s series Game of Thrones works with PETA to help prevent unnecessary husky adoption. He kindly asked in a statement for fans to stop adopting huskies just because they look like the direwolves on GOT and then giving them up because they get too big.

His full statement read,

“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.”

PETA says in their statement,

“Adoring viewers are buying the dogs from pet stores and breeders (often naming them after their favorite characters), then—after realizing how much work and commitment are required to care for them—dumping them at shelters already bursting at the seams with homeless dogs.”
