A beagle named Purin has officially achieved the new record for most balls caught by a dog with the front paws in one minute. The pooch surpassed her own previous record from last year!

The furry goalie achieved the new record after saving 14 mini soccer balls while standing on her back legs and gracefully catching them one at a time.

“The most balls caught by a dog with the paws in one minute is 14 and was achieved by 9-year-old Purin and her owner Makoto Kumagai in Sakura, Chiba, Japan, on March 22, 2015,” Guinness confirmed to ABC News. “The beagle from Tokyo can also skateboard, walk on two legs, rope skipping and has many other impressive skills.”

Kumagai, who’s owned Purin since she was just a puppy, told Guiness that she is a calm, happy pup who’s always eager to play.

Kumagai added that the two practice together for 15 minutes daily.

Purin was named the first record holder in this category after she caught 11 balls in one minute on October 13, 2014, according to Guinness.
