Harry sped on, staring around, and soon the dwellings became more numerous; there were gardens of weed around some of them, and he even saw a pet grindylow tied to a stake outside one door.

I was just wondering whether other human-like creatures, like Centaurs keep pets like some of the Merpeople do.

  • Can you clarify this as to a specific secondary world? You seem to be focusing on the Wizarding World, and of course your tag of choice is HP. But please make sure your actual question is clear! – elemtilas Oct 18 '18 at 21:34

    Harry assumes that the merpeople building is a home and the Gryndylow is a pet, but it might have been a secured area with a guard animal, like the Gringotts vault and dragon. – Gaultheria Oct 18 '18 at 21:56

    @elemtilas i disagree... i think you should be able to use common sense and just see the tag to realise that it's Harry Potter related, A.K.A i think the tag is enough – Niffler Oct 19 '18 at 14:54
  • @elemtilas also, the question is completely clear! from my point of view. – Niffler Oct 19 '18 at 15:31
  • we all know that hagrid keeps pets, but do other human like creatures like centaurs keep pets?? – Ginge Oct 20 '18 at 2:49

Hagrid is a half-human (half-giant) and we see him with various pets throughout the series, including (among others) a dog, a dragon, and a hippogriff.

    While technically true I don't think OP was counting Hagrid as a "human-like being" – user13267 Oct 19 '18 at 6:17
  • @user13267 When I posted my answer that’s not what the question said. It said “half human”, hence my answer begins by stating that Hagrid was half human and half giant. – Alex Oct 19 '18 at 6:20
  • I.e. the question was edited after my answer had already been posted. – Alex Oct 19 '18 at 6:34
