WATCH: Adorable puppy hounds England during training

Updated: 

Jonny Bairstow took a shine to a puppy that interrupted England's training session in Pune on Saturday.

The dog, believed to belong to the groundsman at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, entered the pitch and drew the attention of Yorkshireman Bairstow.

Ahead of the first of three one-day internationals against India on Sunday, England must be growing familiar to the presence of man's four-legged friend during their time in the country.

On day one of the second Test in Visakhapatnman, a stray dog wandered onto the pitch, forcing an early tea.
