Everyone’s favourite performing pooch, the super-talented Purin from Japan, has smashed the Guinness World Records title for the Fastest 10 m travelled on a ball by a dog in a time of just 11.9 seconds – making her a double world record holder on National Puppy Day!Purin first shot to fame in September 2015 for her goalkeeping skills, when footage of her achieving the record for the Most balls caught by a dog with the paws in one minute (14) went viral.
Her smash hit return marks the release of Guinness World Records 2016 – Blockbusters!, the record-breaking guide to the biggest names in pop culture which is out now in the UK, Ireland and Australia.
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. Blockbusters! is full of superstars and their records – but from the world of pop culture. Justin Bieber is the youngest artist ever to achieve five #1 albums… but can he run 10m on a Swiss ball?”
