Sports teams often have a mascot, but none perhaps as cute and unexpected as a Basset Hound who made her way onto a high school football practice session. She refused to leave!

The kids were practicing and running through drills, when this adorable pooch appeared.

KRTV News cameraman Thomas Wylie told The Dodo, “It’s a very small town so I assume she made it home or back to her owners alright. But she was as cute and friendly as can be. Just wanted to play with the players and be a part of practice.”

It was discovered that the dog’s owners live near the field, and the pooch just wanted to be a part of the football fun. Most hysterical is that the dog had some fancy moves of her own and even went in for the snap. With a face like hers, who could resist?

One of the players picked the doggo up for a true ‘handoff,’ all in good fun. Watch this mighty dog in action below.
