Dog Sets World Record For Most Balls Caught With Paws


If you’re looking for a new player for your Newcomb team, consider recruiting this pup. Purin the 9-year-old beagle can catch tiny soccer balls with her paws with better dexterity than most children. The athletic canine broke the record for most balls caught by a dog with paws by grabbing hold of 14 miniature soccer balls in 60 seconds—that’s three more than her record of 11 from last year.

Purin lives with her owner Makoto Kumagai in Japan. They practice for 15 minutes a day to perfect her ball-handling skills.
