Odin and Thor are Northern Inuit dogs, a crossbreed related to Siberian huskies and German shepherds. They played two Game of Thrones dire wolf characters as puppies. Meeting the dogs is a highlight for the thousands of tourists who visit the show’s filming locations in Ireland, including Castle Ward, pictured here, which portrays Winterfell in the show.
