The Mountain From 'Game Of Thrones' Has Adopted A Really Tiny Puppy

The Mountain From 'Game Of Thrones' Has Adopted A Really Tiny Puppy

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, or The Mountain from Game of Thrones as he's most commonly known (because it's much easier to pronounce for those can't speak Icelandic) has adopted a dog.

This isn't interesting, many people have dogs. So why should we care that a professional strong man and part-time actor has a dog, everyone has a dog.

Well, mainly because it's about the same size as his fist and it looks like a naked little ewok.

He uploaded pictures to Instagram of him holding the tiny Pomeranian puppy. This man literally plays tug of war with tractors so I'm surprised he hasn't accidentally ripped the poor dog's head off.



He's called Asterix and he seems to be very happy with his owner, I imagine he's blissfully unaware what the man did to poor Prince Oberyn.

The dog even has his own Instagram account, because are you really a famous dog if you don't have an Instagram account?
