FC Zürich chairman Ancillo Canepa had to come down from the stand to collect his dog from the pitch during the Swiss Super League match against Sion.
The two sides played out a 1-1 draw at the Stadion Letzigrund on Saturday, with arguably it’s outstanding moment coming late in the first half when the pooch entered the field of play.

It trotted around merrily for a while, making the referee and even the commentator laugh, before the club’s real top dog came along to lead it away.
Sitting 3rd in Switzerland’s top flight, FCZ will have been disappointed not to find a win against the team ranked second from bottom.
