If you’re a soccer fan, at some point, you must have felt like running into the field and just live your dream of being a player – even for a short time. Even when you’re at home, there are outbursts of emotions that just make you want to storm in and kick the ball yourself. But, no matter how much frustration we are feeling as spectators, there’s nothing we can do. Soccer is a game best left to the professionals. Learn how soccer stray dog is adopted below.
Cachito Runs on Field
It’s best not to mess with an ongoing soccer game, lest you want to be escorted out by the marshals or get banned from the stadium. Unless you are a dog. This stray dog, later named Cachito, decided he’s had enough of the sidelines and sprinted straight into the field. The adorable pup ran around joyfully around the field while holding a stolen football cleat in his mouth.
Cachito stole the show during the game between Nacional Potosi and The Strongest, two teams in Bolivia. The dog happily explored the Hernando Siles Stadium in La Paz and had the best times of his life for an entire three minutes. Instead of annoyance, Cachito was met with cheers and a lot of belly rubs from the players. He was then carried off by Raul Castro, a player from the home team.
Cachito is Escorted Away
The cuteness of Cachito, of course, has caught the hearts of the people watching on the stands as well as at home. And the best thing? He was considered a good luck charm because the home team won the game. Not long after, the video of this adorable pup running around with a shoe on his mouth has gone viral.
It was said that Cachito was a stray who loves hanging out near the stadium. But after the soccer incident, there was news that the poor pup has gotten into an accident and he was rescued by a shelter. While recovering, Raul Castro (the player who picked Cachito off the field) heard about what happened and decided to adopt the pup. He did so as soon as he returned from an away game. And that’s how this soccer stray dog is adopted below.
