A pitch invader of the doggie variety was spotted during a Argentina Premier League match between Belgrano and Quilmes  last Saturday, when an adorable-looking black pooch wandered onto the field mid-game. 

But rather than getting man-handled by stewards, the dog was showered with plenty of attention - including a very comfy-looking belly rub - from both sets of players as play was temporarily brought to a standstill. 

It was eventually carried off the pitch in style, capturing the hearts of players and spectators alike. This was one popular pitch invader.
