Meet Scotch, the Brazilian border collie. Scotch loves to play altinha (also known as keepie-uppie) on the beach with his friends for hours at a time.
Much like hacky sack, the point of the game is to pass the soccer ball around the circle without touching the ground or using your hands—which is super-easy, if you’re a dog!

Scotch is pretty good at Frisbee too
Once in a while, Scotch gets to hang out with famous athletes and has been on TV with Brazil’s most beloved host, Xuxa.
