A Game of Thrones

Shaggydog and Summer in the TV series

Shaggydog is found in the snow with his brothers and sisters by Robb Stark and Jon Snow.[2] They are taken back to the castle where Shaggydog is chosen by Rickon. After Bran's fall, Shaggydog would often join Summer and Grey Wind in howling beneath Bran's window.[3] During Tyrion Lannister's return to Winterfell, Rickon arrived with the direwolves, Summer, Grey Wind and Shaggydog in tow. When they caught the scent of Tyrion, all three direwolves moved in to corner him and Tyrion was only saved when the Starks called off their wolves.[1] Once Rickon discovers that Robb may be going off to war, he becomes angry and Shaggydog begins to take after his master, biting Gage and Mikken. Farlen chained Shaggydog up so he would bite no one else and Rickon became even more upset.[4] Just before news of Lord Eddard's death arrived, Maester Luwin, Bran and Osha descended to the crypts. There Shaggydog attacked Maester Luwin, but was stopped from doing more damage by the intervention of Summer. Afterwards they all went up to the maester's tower to wait for the news of Lord Eddard's death.[5]
