To brighten the lives of these shelter dogs, they were given their very own magic show.
No one wants to be alone for the holidays, including all the animals living in shelters. They wanted to spread some good cheer to the dogs waiting for their forever homes, so they came up with a very special plan.
Magician John Stessel took his magic act to the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter. They didn’t know how the dogs would respond to his magic tricks and were in for a surprise over some of the dogs’ reactions.
It turns out that not all the dogs thought the disappearing treat trick was very funny. Their responses ranged from mildly amused, to annoyed, to baffled. And who can blame them? They were expecting a treat, after all.
All these pups wanted was their treat, which suddenly disappeared right before their eyes!
Ruckus is the first pup up, watching and waiting for his treat, but when Stessel opens his hand, the treat is gone. Ruckus looks shocked over this turn of events and decides he better run far away.
Next up is Prince. How will he handle the trick? He sniffs both of Stessel’s hands, and the floor, and looks everywhere. Prince isn’t ready to give up hope and keeps waiting for that treat to magically reappear.
Adorable puppy Luna is next and the look on her sweet face, while she waits for her treat, is priceless. But when Stessel opens his palms and the treat is gone, she decides to take matters into her paws and snitches the tassels of his hat.
Cali is a more serious and superstitious pup. She is not about to let any of this magic stuff get too close and quickly moves away when she realizes the treat has vanished. She gives one more hopeful glance back but when she sees the treats are gone, barks her offense and takes off. She doesn’t find it funny.
Hilarious Teragon on the other hand decides that if he puts on a show of his own, maybe the treatment will show up. So, he spins and rolls over to see if he can conjure up the goodies but no such luck.
There are many more pups than these and every one of them is adorable. But, perhaps none of them were as disappointed as a Chihuahua named Bebe who seemed so hurt over not getting her reward for playing touch that she just walks away.
We hope you enjoyed this cute video. And, don’t worry. Ultimately, all the pups get plenty of treats and pets, even Bebe. As always, please feel free to share with your friends.
