Stray Dog Interrupt Soccer Match, Gets Adopted By The Player Who Carried Him Off The Field

This is the moment an adorable stray dog decided to take the fate of its home football team into its own paws during a game in Bolivia.

On last Xmas eve, the adorable pooch stole the show for three minutes and had some great moments of glory.

The mischievous dog joyfully wandered around with a stolen football boot in its mouth and ran around in circles before the game came to a halt.

The stray pup also received some well-deserved belly rubs from players on the field before being carried off the pitch by a player from the home team, Raúl Castro.

Later, the doggo named Cachito not only won the hearts of fans, but it also seems, was a good luck charm for the home team as they won the match 3-0.

The story doesn’t end there though, and it seems, the dog got more than it bargained for (unless that was its plan all along).

After hearing the bad news, Raúl Castro, the player who escorted Cachito out of the stadium, decided to adopt the pup!

‘I got in contact with the shelter and told them that I will adopt him,’ Castro said. ‘He will be named Cachito, the name people gave him.’
