This Talented Dog Responds To ‘Harry Potter’-Themed Commands

A Harry Potter-obsessed dog owner has taught her clever pooch to respond to spells from J.K. Rowling's magical universe.

Actor and YouTuber Anna Brisbin, from Los Angeles, uploaded a video of her longhaired mini daschund, called Remus, responding to the Harry Potter-themed commands - and the internet has completely fallen in love.

The cute little pup plays dead, fetches and pees in response to certain spells.

Remus, who shares his name with Defence Against The Dark Arts teacher Professor Lupin, is even seen sporting an adorable little Hogwarts jumper and tie in the social media clip.

The video has been viewed more than 850,000 times on Twitter and it's attracted heaps of praise from impressed Potter fans.


"OMG!!!! He's so cute... & smart!!! Very impressive," another commenter said.

Remus is already something of a social media star, with more than 27,000 followers on Instagram, so it's no surprise he's stolen the internet's heart with this latest quirky video.

"hi i'm remus and i love belly rubs and hate full moons," the pup's cute bio reads.

Remus' owner Anna also runs the popular YouTube channel Brizzy Voices, which has more than 1 million subscribers. The channel, founded in 2012, focuses on "voice overs, nerdiness, and cosplay hair and makeup."

This comes just days after Harry Potter fans were completely grossed out by a resurfaced detail about the bathroom of habits of witches and wizards in Hogwarts.

According to wizarding world website Pottermore, the magical school didn't always have muggle-style plumbing, meaning pupils just went to the toilet on the floor and Wingardium Leviosa'd it away.

The tweet read: "Hogwarts didn't always have bathrooms. Before adopting Muggle plumbing methods in the eighteenth century, witches and wizards simply relieved themselves wherever they stood, and vanished the evidence."

Personally we're much more interested in Harry Potter pooches than Harry Potter plumbing - so we'd like to see even more cute magical animals please, Internet.
