Dog Who Responds to Harry Potter Spells Is the Most Enchanting Thing on the Internet Today

1 minute read

Harry Potter fans are well aware that dogs weren’t allowed as pets at Hogwarts — only owls, cats, rats and toads. But if J.K. Rowling had seen this magical pup, she may have changed her mind.

In an adorable video shared by actor and YouTuber Anna Brisbin on her YouTube channel Brizzy Voices, Brisbin demonstrates how she trained her long-haired mini miniature dachshund Remus to respond to Harry Potter spells.

As Brisbin waves a wand around, the 1-year-old Remus — who is dressed in standard Gryffindor getup — balances on his hind legs in response to her levitation charm of “Wingardium Leviosa,” plays dead after her “Avada Kedavra” killing curse command and even fetches to complete the task of “Accio ball.”

“Oh, you trained your dog in German?” Brisbin tweeted. “Coolcoolcool I trained my dog in Harry Potter spells.”
