Game of Throne’s ‘The Mountain’ may be a giant on TV, but he prefers a tiny dog IRL


If you watch Game of Thrones, you know Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, aka The Mountain. Björnsson isn’t just an actor, he’s a professional strongman, two-time winner of strongest man in Europe and, most importantly, dad to his dog Asterix.

You’d think a man that macho would be more likely to own a pet wolf, or maybe a bear. But no, Asterix is a 5-month-old, itty-bitty Pomeranian puppy who just happens to be the cutest, fluffiest thing you’ve ever laid eyes on.
