  • Fred Goettel of North Carolina captured the moment he used his own shadow to trick the small Maltese 
  • He stands on a balcony overlooking his neighbor's dog and pretends to rub his tummy with his shadow 
  • The little woof sees the arm and leans back thinking he's about to be petted 

An adorable Maltese dog was tricked by a neighbor's shadow into thinking he was getting a tummy rub. 

Fred Goettel of Wilmington, North Carolina, captured the moment he found a new way to play with his neighbor's dog. 

In the footage, Goettel stands on a balcony watching the small Maltese soaking up the sun.

Much to the pup's delight, Goettel pretends to rub his stomach using his hand’s shadow in the sunlight.

Each time Goettel goes in for a belly rub, the dog lounges back to enjoy the attention. As soon as Goettell draws back, the dog pops back up for more.

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