Peter Dinklage has teamed up with PETA to do some good!

So now one of the show’s stars, Peter Dinklage, is teaming up with PETA to encourage “Game of Thrones” fans not to go out and get the fluffy dogs on a whim.
He said: “Shelters are reporting that huskies are being abandoned, as often happens when dogs are bought on impulse. … If you’re going to bring a dog into your family, make sure you’re prepared for such a tremendous responsibility.”
The American Kennel Club says huskies are very energetic and need lots of exercise. Their thick coats also require frequent brushing, and some pet owners just aren’t up to the task.
This is an unfortunate trend in entertainment — people fall in love with on-screen animals and want to adopt their own. But they aren’t always able or willing to care for those animals.
