This dog makes a better FIFA goalie than most.

Who said dogs don’t love soccer?

This is Purin, a nine-year-old beagle from Japan who has the unholiest obsession with becoming a legitimate football goalie someday. Maybe at the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup. For canines.

Saved!

Purin is so much in love with the sport, she has convinced her human to train with her everyday, tossing dog-sized soccer balls which she prevents from hitting the goal net by catching them in her furry paws.

The pretty pup with her fluffy ears is so good at what she does, she has actually made the Guinness World Record for stopping 14 balls in their tracks inside of a minute!

Watch Purin go!

Her human, Makoto Kumagai, who lives with Purin in Sakura, Chiba in Japan revealed his amazing canine companion is a multi-talented athlete who can skateboard, skip rope, walk on her hind legs, and balance on a giant rolling ball without falling off!

Incredible balancing Purin

According to Kumagai, who describes Purin as a calm and happy beagle who is competitive and always eager to play, the dog has been with him since she was a pup, and one of their bonding moments consists of spending 15 minutes a day practicing her goalie skills.

Prior to making the Guinness’ Book, where you will soon find her featured in the 2016 edition of the tome, Purin actually made two other records with her goalie skills. Last year, she caught 11 balls within the space of a minute!

Like the little lady she is, Purin doesn’t use any other part of her body to save the balls from the net, she only uses her paws. Standing on her hind legs, eyes sharp at attention, the floppy-eared pup can snag more balls than an actual FIFA World Cup goalie in a single game!

Stretching up to meet the ball.

It seems like the African wildlife can never really escape from the dangers of poaching.

Despite the valiant efforts of wildlife conservation groups against poaching, animals such as Cecil the Lion and these poor elephants pay the price.

Last month, three wild elephants were attacked by illegal hunters and got poisoned in the process. Although wounded, they were able to escape alive. The elephants traveled across the African landscape to seek help from one safe haven they know: the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Although the elephants were not housed by the center, one of them had been mated with two orphan elephants raised there.

Guilty Dog Desperately Begs for Forgiveness in the Cutest Way

This dog has the most desperate yet sweetest attempt to acquire forgiveness from its owner!

If there is one animal that feels like it is part of the human race, we have to answer dogs. Aside from solely getting the title "man's best friend," dogs are also human-like in terms of emotions and ability to care and understand. We've seen so many cute dog reactions all over the Internet but we think we found one of the most touching dog-owner videos ever.

A Facebook user named Anthony Federica Granai posted a video featuring a lovely Labrador named Ettore in his account. The dog seems to be at fault and although we are not quite sure what the dog's real mishap was, we think it was grave enough for it to look oh so guilty but adorably pitiful.

In the video, the dog refused to take "no" for an answer so when his owner persisted to resist, it started doing all sorts of clingy stuff in the hopes of being forgiven. The dog looked desperate but cute nonetheless.

A golden retriever named Tillie was caught guarding the basset hound Phoebe for an entire week at a cistern where Phoebe fell. Everyone in town is hailing the dog a hero and calling the two "best friends."

The canine pair was reported to have strayed from their home at Vashon Island in Washington State.

Their owner B.J. Duft told ABC News that the two dogs escaped out the front door that was left open on September 7. It was easy to miss the escape because there was a party in the house that time, and people are going in and out the door.
