Dog From Harry Potter Movies Found at Shelter, Needs a New HomePublished September 26, 2011
A dog that once graced the silver screen in the form of "Padfoot" (the dog form of Gary Oldman's character Sirius Black) from the Harry Potter movies is now in need of a new home after being found at an English dog rescue this past weekend.
According to a Fox News report, Berry, the German Shepherd in question, was given up by his former owner, stuntman Paul Thompson, after he could no longer care for the dog. Thompson went on to say that he could no longer care for Berry and another canine companion, Porridge properly due to constraints from his job.
"I found myself spending a lot of time away from home," Thompson said in the Fox report. "The dogs needed more attention than I could give. It was a difficult decision to make but one I had to accept was best for the dogs."
Along with Thompson, both Berry and Porridge starred in TV and movie roles.
The English rescue center was working quickly to try to find new placement for the dogs, but has not been able to find the pups a new home so far.
