The beagle, from Chiba in Japan, managed to make a whopping 14 saves - beating her last personal best by three. Purin's success comes just in time for her to be featured in the 60th edition of the Guinness book of World Records. The talented pooch belongs Makoto Kumagai, who has owned Purin since she was born. The pair practice together at their home in Japan for 15 minutes a day.
