Who does not love Game of Thrones movie series and its Dire wolves! While at the Winterfell Festival at Castle Ward in Northern Ireland, we came across the original or real Dire wolves from the GOT TV show. Dire wolf means fearsome dog – and they look like it!
The type of breed for these dire wolves are considered very rare and they have also been considered the closest thing to wolves which people could own without having a license for that – which was the main reason why this man decided to go for those two dire wolves who are now pretty much famous.
Yes, they are rare, but people are not getting the idea of how rare they are; the parents of these dire wolves happen to be from England, which make those two the first little breed to be ever born in Ireland – and that could tell the story of their rarity.
When it comes to TV shows and movies, the type which is usually asked for are these dire wolves and this mainly goes back for how intelligent they tend to be – which is exactly the reason how these two got famous by taking their roles and parts in Game of Thrones movie series.
The Story Behind The Dire Wolves:
The story started when this man got the dire wolves when they were still seven weeks old and then got a telephone call from the breeder three weeks later when they were ten weeks old, saying that some TV show wants to use his dogs in it – after three weeks from being taken, they came back with their high and full strength. Game of Thrones is all about swords and stuff like that and that helped in giving these dogs for the movie and also the reason why they gained all this strength when they were back – a good plan played well.
These two dogs are more famously known for Summer Bran’s Direwolf (the one with the long hair) and Grey Wind Robb Stark Direworf (the one with the short hair) – and they got attached to these names because that is the names they were given in Game of Thrones movie series and they got pretty much famous for that that they even got their personal Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts so that their fans could keep up with their updates, that’s of course in addition to all the other events which they took part in all over Europe.
In the series, Grey Wind was one of the six different dire wolf pups which were found by the children of House Stark and was then raised by Robb Stark. Grey Wind appeared in three seasons – one, two, and three – and unfortunately, he was killed at the Red Wedding.
Summer Direwolf was also one of those six different dire wolf pups which were found by the children of House Stark but this time it was raised by Bran Stark. Summer direwolf appeared in four different seasons – one, two, six, and seven – and he was killed in defence of Bran when wights and white walker attacked the cave of the Three-Eyed Raven.
These creatures are not only intelligent to be taken and used in such movies and TV shows, but they are also loyal. Whenever you spot a direwolf – which will probably never happen except if you are at a show or in a special event – make sure to look out for its pack and take care because they usually attack on sight.
The Dire Wolf is the ancestor of the modern wolf and is adapted to the dangerous environment of the ARK. The appearance of this animal might differ from one to another because its colour ranges anywhere from white to black with mixed greys and black and it always appears muscular and large.
Game of Thrones has been different by all means – a good movie series out there – but what makes us proud is that a lot of its scenes and locations where taken in Ireland and Northern Ireland, and most importantly, even the dire wolves which were used as role players in some of the seasons were also taken from Ireland.
