Turns out, the dog was a random visitor dropping in on the team's practice. But despite displaying what might best be described as "the antithesis of athleticism," sure enough, she made the cut.
"The head coach told me she just showed up at the start of practice and no one knew where she came from. They were referring to her as their 'mascot,'" Thomas Wylie, who was there filming for KRTV News, told The Dodo. "It’s a very small town so I assume she made it home or back to her owners alright. But she was as cute and friendly as can be. Just wanted to play with the players and be a part of practice."
This pup's performance on the field that day may leave something to be desired from a sports perspective — but she's a star in our book.
