Berry, the German Shepherd who played Padfoot in "Prisoner of Azkban," is up for adoption:

The ten-year-old mutt, who played the animal version of Gary Oldman's character Sirius Black and the godfather to Radcliffe's character Harry can no longer be looked after by his owner, Paul Thompson. Trained stuntman Mr Thompson, said he spends too much time away from home to give Berry the attention he deserves.

Wish I could adopt him, he looks the spitting image of the dog I had who actually died while they were filming “Prisoner of Azkaban” unfortunately I already have two adopted dogs and I can’t have anymore where I live. :-(

This story made me so sad! Especially the bio that Berry “wrote.” I hope someone can provide Berry and Porridge a forever home together.

It’s nice to know Leaky is also doing something for the animals. I’ll repost this on facebook and see what I can do.

I’m not big on dogs but I’d totally adopt him, not even because of the Potter connection, I’m moving out and I’d give him to my brother that’s always wanted a dog.

Its so sad when pets cant stay with the owners they love. I hope he gets a very kind, and loving home with a nice family. If I could, I would adopt him.
