A loving dog that made headlines in Bolivia for interfering with a soccer match is adopted by the player who helped him.
Football games typically feature just athletes performing stunts with the ball and cooperating as a team to win, but a dog that interfered with play caught everyone’s attention.
The Strongest and Nacional de Potos played a soccer match at the Hernando Siles stadium in La Paz, Bolivia, when a stranger stole the show. When a stray dog entered the playing area, he made quite a stir since he was holding a substitute’s stolen shoe in his mouth.
The “Cachito” dog clearly wanted to show the soccer players the sporting gem, but they made an effort to stay focused on the match.

The dog was quickly forgotten, though, since the game was abandoned as a result of its meandering over the field while dodging players and officials. The dog decided to lie down on the playing field and start eagerly chomping on the shoe since he was so happy with all the attention he had received.
Game commentators had to mention how adorable the pup was, and he became the game’s star within minutes.
