‘Harry Potter’ dog needs a new home


( Harry Potter Wiki - Berry as Padfoot. Trust me, he’s much cuter in real life.)
One of the “Harry Potter” stars is homeless.

Before you start worrying about Ron Weasley, know that it’s not one of the human actors who needs a new residence. It’s Berry, the 10-year-old German shepherd who played Padfoot — Sirius Black in animal form — in the movie adaptation of “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” film. Gary Oldman played Berry’s human counterpart.

Berry’s owner, Paul Thompson of North London, gave up Berry and his best canine friend, Porridge, for adoption because he was away from home too often, the Express reports.

“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,” he said.

The two pooches are currently at Britain’s German Shepherd Dog Rescue waiting to be adopted. You can see pictures of them here.

About 100 people, presumably Potter-loving Muggles, have offered to adopt the dogs, ABC News reports. The dogs will most likely stay in the U.K. because of health problems.
