This dog is the ultimate Harry Potter fan and it’s the most adorable thing ever!
Named after the Defence Against The Dark Arts teacher, Remus the miniature Dachshund may just be the first ever dog wizard. His owner, YouTuber Anna Brisbin, began training Remus when he was just two months old to respond to spells such as ‘Stupefy’ (lay down) and ‘Wingardium Leviousa’ (stand on his hind legs.)
For example, if you spout out the spell known for killing people, ‘Avada Kedavra’, Remus will spin around and drop “dead” to the floor showing his belly while staring at you with magical puppy-dog-eyes. You’re gonna lose your chill when you see him respond to ‘Serpensortia’, the spell which Rumus sticks his tongue out and winks.
Brisbin tells Huffington Post that training Remus over the years has been a lot of “trial and error,” but a one-on-one training course and a group puppy therapy class helped out a bit. And to top it off, her Dad is a dog trainer back in her hometown of South Carolina, so she has an idea or two on how to teach her charming pup new spells.
And to make matters cuter, the long-haired mini Dachshund even has his own wizard-inspired wardrobe! Check out some of Remus’ out-of-this-world tricks in the video down below…
