There are very talented dogs that can catch a Frisbees, ride a skateboard or even balance on ropes. The average pet loves to play catch, tug of war, and chase after his or her human, but have you ever met a dog that can play soccer?

Meet Purin, a Beagle who lives in Japan and not only is he a soccer aficionado, he is also an excellent soccer player. This talented canine can maneuver a soccer ball and block opponents from scoring.

If you into the current Soccer World Cup and love dogs, watch one of Purin’s videos where he displays his soccer moves.

We already have the puppy bowl and if we can rally up talented soccer dog players, maybe by the next Soccer World Cup we can have a Puppy Soccer Cup.
