Last year, a disturbing video appeared online showing an Argentinian soccer player named Jose Jimenez treating a dog very badly after it had wandered onto the field. (See that story here.) For his disgusting display, Jimenez was kicked out of the game and, eventually, off the team.
As an example that all professional soccer players aren’t such jerks, check out the video above, which was shot this weekend, also in Argentina. In this case, a player named Jonathan Zacaria shows compassion for the confused dog, after another of his Quilmes teammates pats and rubs the tummy of the sweet animal. Thanks for showing us how it’s done, gentlemen!
