TOKYO - Scores of people around the world are fans of soccer and its players, but can soccer handle a new star?

Her name is Purin. She plays in Tokyo, and can handle the positions of goalie and kicker. She’s also a beagle.

She’s a swift runner with a strong nose for a midfielder that can maneuver the ball in any direction. When it comes to defending her goal, she quickly catches the ball. Don’t be surprised when she plays forward and shows off her score by walking on her front legs.

She’s also ready for her jersey with the nickname “Purin the Super Beagle."

Her Facebook profile and her YouTube page highlight her resume from personal interests of eating liver to her awards. Her Instagram  account shows that she's skilled at jump roping, swimming and skateboarding.
