The dog who only responds to Harry Potter spells

While most dogs respond to generic commands, this magical doggo proves that even animals can be wizards.

Training your pet to sit and roll can be a lengthy process, but one dog owner has just taken her commands to the next level. While some owners can pride themselves on getting their dogs to go fetch, a Doxie owner in America has trained her dog to only respond to Harry Potter spells.

Yep, Remus (named after Professor Remus Lupin, RIP)  may not know what 'stay' means, but he sure does know that 'Serpensortia' means to freeze - literally, freezing his actions with his tongue still hanging out. 

While Remus impresses us with magical skills, the cutest thing is that he wears a Gryffindor uniform the entire time - complete with the tie and vest.

And Remus isn't just following voice commands - as his owner instructs her pooch by using her very own Hogwarts wand, sometimes on her Harry Potter-themed bed linen while wearing her Deathly Hallows slippers. 

Safe to say, this human and dog duo are dedicated witches and wizards!

Remus knows how to dramatically drop dead for 'Avada Kedavra' and to run to his owner for 'Revelio'.

Do you think you and your pooch could ever get this magical?
