Don’t try to get a goal past this dog — she is the best keeper on four paws. 

Purin the pup is so skilled at blocking shots that she is now a world record holder. According to Guinness World Records, the beagle from Japan recently beat the record for “Most Balls Caught by a Dog with the Paws in One Minute.” Purin was able to save 14 shots in 60 seconds, single–handedly beating the previous record of 11 catches. The Most Valuable Pooch that the beagle bested? Herself! Purin set the record of 11 catches just a year ago. 

The canine catcher was able to improve thanks to daily 15-minute practice sessions with her owner, Makoto Kumagai. Kumagai is proud of his talented pet and loves the time he spends with Purin passing the ball in front of a net. 

Catching isn’t the only thing Purin’s paws can do. The pup also holds the record for “Fastest 10m Travelled on a Ball By a Dog.” Balancing on a large inflatable Swiss ball, Purin rolled across the finish line with a time of 11.90 seconds. Yup, we are not worthy.
