Stop Everything! "The Mountain" Has a Tiny Pet Pomeranian

Game of Thrones' favorite strongman has a softer—and fluffier—side.

Even the most casual Game of Thrones fan knows "The Mountain." Impossibly tall, infamously brutal, and now eerily silent, Gregor Clegane is responsible for some of the most violent scenes in the show. But Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who plays The Mountain in seasons four, five, and six, has a bit of a sensitive side. The professional strongman recently acquired a tiny Pomeranian puppy named Asterix! And they are so cute together.

Björnsson is so big! And Asterix is so small! Björnsson is so tattooed! And Asterix is so fluffy! We could watch this unlikely pair play all day, but we'll settle for watching their adorable Insta-videos. Just watch the tiny pom fight off a mighty lion.

How can you not fall in love with this little guy? Asterix was such a huge hit with Björnsson's followers, that he created an Instagram account for his new buddy. And, of course, it's perfect. With over 7,000 followers, asterix_astrikur is the perfect account for GoT and pom fans alike. Plus, fluffy!

Asterix and Björnsson are proof that not all dogs look like their owners!
