Last week, tennis fans attending the Brazil Open tournament in Sao Paulo got a rare treat when they saw an unusual ‘ball boy’ picking up balls that went out of bounds. A dog!
The pup was one of four trained stray dogs that were found abandoned in Sao Paulo, Brazil’s biggest city. The unusual initiative was made to promote the adoption of abandoned street animals, reported The Huffington Post.
The dogs, Mel, Frida, Costela, and Isabelle, were there to raise awareness of animal adoption in Brazil.
During the exhibition match between two internationally ranked players, the rescue dogs dutifully waited alongside the tennis court. The pups’ job: to play ball boy and collect stray tennis balls.
As soon as a ball hit the net or bounced off the court, they leaped into action as the fans cheered them.
Watch these adorable pups in action below.
