"Harry now carried a large cage that held a beautiful snowy owl, fast asleep with her head under her wing."
Hedwig was Harry Potter's pet Snowy Owl. She was an 11th birthday gift from Rubeus Hagrid to Harry.
In addition to the usual use owls are put to, delivering mail, Hedwig was also a close companion to Harry. She remained one of his closest friends right up to her death during the Battle of the Seven Potters at the height of the Second Wizarding War.
Harry was obviously delighted with his new pet and was very grateful to Hagrid as this was the first birthday present Harry had ever received, as the Dursleys had never celebrated his birthday. He very quickly grew attached to her.
Harry decided on the name Hedwig after seeing it in A History Of Magic. In the days before arriving for his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry avoided the Dursleys by staying in his room. Hedwig stayed with him during this time, his only friend at 4 Privet Drive.
Throughout her life, Hedwig fulfilled the traditional owl function of delivering mail for Harry, but was also a loyal and affectionate companion; her special way of showing affection was to gently nibble his ears or fingers. She also demonstrated that she was fully capable of understanding his wishes and would faithfully follow his orders, such as when he instructed her to find and peck Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger to prompt them to write to him during summer holidays.
This enchanting character from the world of Harry Potter is made from the finest alpaca and is limited to only 1,500 pieces.
Steiff's Hedwig is presented with a numbered certificate in a Steiff gift box with a cardboard outer sleeve.
