Baby Sirius Black needs a home! Berry, the German Shepherd dog who played the pup version of the animagus Sirius Black, is up for adoption. Hurry now to save Padfoot!

Famous for his role in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Berry is up for adoption because his owner, stuntman and trainer Paul Thompson, could no longer afford him. (Along with his other dog, Porridge — and yes the dogs must be adopted as a pair.)


According to Berry's profile on German Shepherd Rescue:

My Dad contacted German Shepherd Dog Rescue because he realized he didn't have the time to look after us properly anymore. His work takes him away from home an awful lot and whilst his friends and family tried to help look after us, we weren't getting the walks or brushes we were used to.


If you meet the criteria for adoption (which is a long list when adopting a slightly older UK dog like Berry (live in the UK, no children under 7, no apartments, can't be left for more then four hours on their own, etc.) then head to the German Shepherd Rescue and adopt Padfoot now!
