Hafþór Björnsson is one of the most intimidating humans on the planet. He's 6'9", close to 400 pounds of all muscle, plays the most terrifying character on Game of Thrones, can chuck a keg like it's a baseball, carry about 1,000 around, eats about three pounds of meat a day, and also has a tiny, adorable Pomeranian named Asterix who sometimes works out with the strongman.

Yes, the very large man has a very little dog, and we're assuming you'd never want to question why he didn't want something like a bigger German Shepard or a Rottweiler or something, because you simply don't ask questions like that to a guy who could probably pick you up and bend your body into a few interesting shapes.

While Asterix has shown up on Björnsson's Instagram account a few times, the dog who loves to "play, cuddle & take naps," also has an account that we're guessing will be followed by tens of thousands of people who want to see how this buddy comedy in the making plays out.
