What If Lord Of The Rings Was All Dogs? This Twitter Thread Has An Answer

Have you ever thought about what Lord of the Rings would look like if every single actor suddenly grew fluffy ears and a tail and were way more interested in playing fetch than bringing the Ring to Mordor? Well, this Twitter account sure has. The user known as Lady K picked out dogs that look the most like the characters from one of the most popular fantasy movies ever. Lady K shared how she came up with this idea: “I think someone said an Afghan hound looked like Saruman, and it prompted the rest.” There are 18 epic characters and 18 adorable fluffers that look just like them.

What do you think of these mashups? Do you agree or would you pick some other breeds for these characters? Tell us in the comments and don’t forget to upvote your favorite duo!

Lady K is obviously a fan of LOTR and has come up with the original idea to give the characters doggy counterparts. If you scroll through Lady K’s social media, you can see that she is very passionate about today’s issues, like inequality and Black Lives Matter. On her Twitter, she writes a little more about herself: “Feminist. Artist. Writer. Agnostic. Mother of neurodivergent daughters. Owner of Small Dog & Boy Dog. Here to rage against the dying of the light.”
