Responding purely to spells made famous by the Harry Potter books, this little pup is quite possibly the cutest Harry Potter fan we've ever seen.
Named after Remus Lupin (Hogwart’s best ever Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher), this miniature Dachshund was destined to love all things magic but thanks to his Harry Potter-mad owner Anna Brisbin, he's the cutest fan around.
Little Remus has his very own Harry Potter-inspired wardrobe which includes a Hogwarts tie, a black cape and even a wand. Even more impressively, he knows all of the spells!
A spell-bound pooch
With the command ‘Stupefy’ little Remus lies down still.
‘Wingardium Leviosa’ means the little pooch lifts his legs into the air as if he's floating.
‘Avada Kedavra’ (the killing curse) causes little Remus to spin around before lying on the floor belly upwards and playing dead!
Remus’ owner Anna has been training Remus since he was two months old, and her partner is a dog trainer which no doubt helps. She says of Remus’ training
“The easiest and quickest command for him to learn was ‘Stupefy’ for down,” she said. “Next was ‘Wingardium Leviosa’ for jump/stand. We're still working hard at ‘Confundus’ to spin in donuts, and some commands, like ‘Aguamenti’ [the water spell] for pee, were just jokes I knew were about to happen."
A magical following
You'll be unsurprised to learn that little Remus has amassed quite the Instagram following and currently has 64,000 followers who tune in to see his latest tricks and Harry Potter inspired wardrobe choices.
We're absolute fans of Remus so excuse us if we're busy teaching the Wamiz dogs magic spells for the next couple of days!
