Shadow pup-pets! Confused dog thinks his neighbour’s shadow is stroking him

Hilarious footage of a dog reacting to his neighbour petting his tummy from the balcony above.

The clip filmed June 25 in Wilmington, North Carolina shows the moment the Maltese pup lays down as soon as Fred Goettel’s shadow appears on his stomach as if he’s being petted.

“I noticed two dogs from an above balcony, the only way I could pet it was to use my shadow and he reacted to it!” Fred told Newsflare.
