The Ultimate Harry Potter Memorabilia: Black Dog Up for Adoption

main image

In preparation for Halloween, many start breaking out the fake spider webs for decoration and scour RedBox to find a spell-bounding movie. One movie that has enchanted movie buffs every year for the last 10 years around is Harry Potter. The box office hit grabbed audiences everywhere. From 2 to 102, people of all ages tend to enjoy the witchy plot and the captivating special effects.

Aside from just watching the movie, one can now take their love a little further. While adoption is something that i welcome any time of year, one particular adoptable dog is perfect for Harry Potter lovers.

In Harry Potter: The Prisoner of Azakban, the image of Padfoot (the animagos of Sirius Black) is unforgettable. With his snarling teeth and rugged coat, Padfoot (whose real name is Berry) looked like a scary beast on the big screen, but without all the Hollywood effects, he is just a cute cuddly black German Shepherd.

At 10 years old, Berry has been the loyal pet of Paul Thompson, Hollywood stuntman and animal trainer. Luckily for Harry Potter movie fans, the lovable celebrity dog is up for adoption.

Hardship came towards Paul Thompson and he was forced to give up Berry and another German Shepherd named Porridge to England’s German Shepherd Rescue. Porridge is 13 years old and grew up with Berry. The pair have been best friends their whole lives and must be adopted together.  Both are currently residing in a temporary foster home, but will need permanent homes soon.

Many requests have been made to adopt the dogs. However, many of those requests have come from the U.S. The rescue would like to keep the pups in their native home in the U.K.

Of course with such a high celebrity status, it's thought that the pups won’t have any trouble getting adopted. But if you’re in the U.K. or know someone that resides there, it might just be your lucky day to nab up a famous best friend.

Those interested can go to the rescue’s website and fill out an adoption application.
