Hairy Potter

We saw Sirius Black as a dog, Hermione and McGonagall as cats, but what about the rest of the Harry Potter gang as cute canines? Here is an idea of what the films could look like if we changed up the actors. Maybe they could even use dog bones as wands. 

Harry Potter: If only a certain dog breed wore glasses and had a lightning scar, making a match would be much easier for this main character who is both smart and brave, but sometimes utterly ridiculous. I mean, where would he be without Hermione? That’s why I think Harry is like a doberman pinscher – I mean, can’t you just see this as the chosen one who saves the world, but still wants to play around? Just imagine the chicken as Buckbeak.(Makeagif)

Hermione Granger: Hermione is incredibly intelligent, brave and loyal to her friends. She loves to be studious, and has some major curly hair. I would say she is a labradoodle, with the smarts of a poodle and the adventurous nature of a lab. Plus, they’re super cute and everyone loves them, just as everyone loves Hermione.

Ron Weasley: He’s red-haired, adorable, and always defends his family and friends. I don’t think Ron can be anything but a golden retriever. 

Draco Malfoy: Draco has a lot of bark and no bite. Although he was quite mean while growing up at Hogwarts, there were reasons for the bitterness, and a softer side underneath. I would say Draco is a German shephard; they sometimes look a little intense, but are awesome, sweet dogs. 

Neville Longbottom: The almost Chosen One is a bit goofy, but courageous and a true Gryffindor at heart. I can just see him as a beagle.

Rubeus Hagrid: Can’t you see him as a giant, sweet Newfoundland?

Albus Dumbledore: With his wisdom and great white beard, this great wizard is like the big, protective great pyrenees that fearlessly defends family and flock. They’re also sweet dogs, and giant teddy bears.
