Purin gained fame back in September 2015 when footage of her achieving the record for the most balls caught by a dog with the paws in one minute (14 times, by the way) went viral. Here she is doing just that.

Guinness World Records editor-in-chief, Craig Glenday, said: "Purin is a superstar in her own right now having achieved double-record holder status with her latest exploits.
