GoT is one of my top shows of all times. Maybe not how it ended, but the first five seasons where lit. When I saw the dire wolves each Stark Child and John Snow had, made me almost run out and adopt another dog. Luckily, my bank account had other ideas and put a stop to it. Still, according to the American Kennel Club, Games of Thrones has had a huge impact on the Siberian Husky adoption–and unfortunately–abandonment. According to the article, shelters are seeing a 20% uptick in abandon huskies from owners unsure of the difficulty in caring for these breeds. So before you adopt, make sure you know the tempered nature of these dogs, but also the challenges in caring for their active lifestyles.
