Police dog steals the show during football game, delights the internet
A video is going viral on the internet from Brazil “The Campeonato Pernambucano de Futebol” in which a police dog suddenly invades the pitch during an ongoing match between two local teams – Nautico and Retro.
The incident happened in the final game of the tournament when a German Shepherd, part of a K-9 team, got a little excited and decided to join the game. The match was played on Thursday and ended in a 1-0 victory for Retro.

In the video, the dog is seen running around the field around the players and they too enjoy his company. After a few laps around the field, the dog decides to scoop the ball up in his mouth and enjoy a few more laps before being lifted off the ground by two squad officers.
This video is tweeted by @geglobo on Twitter with the caption:
“Um cachorro da POLÍCIA invadiu o campo na final do Pernambucano! E o bichinho queria a bola… (A police dog invaded the field during the Pernambuco final! And the animal wanted the ball).
Social media users loved the spirit of the dog. “Having the time of your life” said one user on Twitter.
“Football is a simple game. Twenty-two men chase a ball for 90 minutes and in the end the German Shepherd always wins,” another tweeted.
Loyal, confident, courageous and stable, German Shepherds are often considered the best all-around workers in the canine world. It is a hardy dog breed with a noble personality and exceptional intelligence.
