Padfoot from 'Harry Potter' Up for Adoption
The famous black dog from “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” is up for adoption and in need of a loving home.
If you’re a huge “Harry Potter” fan you know this German Shepherd by Padfoot, his real name is Berry. He “played” the animagus, the animal form of Harry’s godfather Sirius Black, who at first scared the young wizard, but ended up becoming a true man’s best friend.
Well now, Berry’s owner stuntman Paul Thompson can no longer take care of him and has reached out through an adoption agency to find him a new home.
Britain’s “Sunday Express” reported that Thompson feels he is away from home too much, because of work, and can no longer look after the 10-year-old pup and his other dog, Porridge, a 13-year-old German Shepherd-Labrador mix.
In order to get both dogs ready for their next home, the dogs are being taken care of by German Shepherd Dog Rescue.
A fun “first-person” essay was posted on the adoption website as if written in Berry’s own words describing himself and his life alongside Porridge and their owner.
“I love people and my best friend is Porridge who is 13 human years and who I live with. Porridge has also been in some films. Both of us are a bit wobbly in our older years but we still love life.”
He goes on to say, “I am a German Shepherd and my Dad got me as a puppy. He did lots of exciting things like being a stunt man and animal training for films. That’s probably how I got my part. I love people and my best friend is Porridge who is 13 human years and who I live with. Porridge has also been in some films. Both of us are a bit wobbly in our older years but we still love life.”
