Must watch: Heroic ballboy saves three puppies in Bolivian football match
Some players took exception to the dogs' intrusion with the ballboy stepping in to save the day
Thursday 08 May 2014
A ballboy at a Bolivian top-light football match is being hailed a hero after he saved a trio of puppies who ran onto the pitch.
During the match between The Strongest and Universitario, the three dogs charged onto the field and interrupted proceedings, much to the annoyance of some of the players.
One little black puppy can then be seen being picked up and dropped repeatedly by one of the players who took exception to the intrusion.
When the player, who looks to get a little bite for his troubles, started acting increasingly more aggressive, the ballboy stepped in to ensure no harm came to dog.
Watch his heroics in the video below…
