The Northern Inuit Dog has been bred with the main focus of maintaining a friendly, calm and confident character. Even though these dogs have an uncanny resemblance to wolves, there is no wolf DNA in them, this breed gets along pretty well with kids and is playful and affectionate.

By the end of that episode I was so into the Direwolves creature and I wanted to really know if they were real or not or if they were just Computer Generated s so I got digging and guess what I found out?

When Cerseis men were searching for Nymeria to punish the direwolf for biting Joffrey, Arya secretly sent her away. Nymeria wasnt seen again until Game of Thrones season 7 when Arya ran into her while traveling back to Winterfell. The direwolf was revealed to be the leader of her own pack. Arya tried to get her old companion to follow her home, but she understood why the direwolf wanted to stay behind in the Riverlands.

The Direwolves known scientifically as “Canis dirus”, dire wolves were actually not that much larger than the modern day gray wolves, but they had a much larger skull and jaws, and a much stronger bite. They likely feasted on large mammals, like bison and it said that the Dire wolves prowled Earth around 300,000 years ago, but thanks to fossil records—and the legendary TV series Game of Thrones—their legend lives on.

Summer constantly stayed by Brans side after Winterfell was taken over. When Brans group made it north of the Wall, they traveled to the cave of the Three-Eyed Raven. While there, a horde of White Walkers and wights invade the cave. Summer tried to protect Bran by fighting off the Night Kings forces. The direwolf was killed in the season 6 attack, but she gave Bran enough time to escape.

    Dog Plays With Ghost! CAUGHT ON CCTV (Spooky Ghost Dog Captured)

    The dog breed featured in Game of Thrones, the Northern Inuit, is one of the seven dog breeds that look like wolves, gray wolves, or timber wolves (Canis lupus). My own “timber wolf” is a mixture of Siberian Husky, Alaskan Malamute, and German Shepherd, a combination that acts like a dog but looks like a gray wolf.

    If you are looking for a dog that resembles the extinct dire wolf, there is one particular breed that has it all—the American Alsatian. Before we go into the positive traits of the American Alsatian, lets learn more about the mysterious 10,000-year-old dire wolf.

    The dire wolf (Canis dirus) was the largest species of wolf to ever roam the planet. Up until 10,000 years ago, it wandered over North and South America, taking down the huge prey (megafauna) that roamed the world at that time.

    This species was definitely big enough to do the job, weighing between 50 and 80 kilos (about 110 to 175 pounds), and standing as tall as the contemporary gray wolf. Scientists who have worked with dire wolf skeletons have found that they were even stockier and heavier than the gray wolf.

    The dire wolf attacked the large prey that roamed America at the time and ate a diet of horse, bison, and giant sloth. As the prey died off (maybe because of humans wandering into North America and hunting the large animals), the species struggled to survive.

    Although it existed in America for about 100,000 years with the gray wolf, it eventually became extinct and is not genealogically related to our current dog breeds.
