All dogs are special. Brimming with unbridled love, affection and an energy that channels through every pore of their existence.
The champions that they are, it is only natural that some of them have their names in the annals of Guinness Book of World records!

3. Purin, the dog who caught most balls by paw in 1 Minute.
And if you had any doubts as to why dogs deserve to play the FIFA world cup, look no further than this doggo. Purin can catch little soccer balls like a pro. His world record stands at 14 Balls caught in a single minute!
