A four-legged quarterback? Aussie Shepherd intercepts American football

Two boys playing American football had the shock of their lives when their dog stole the ball and scored a touchdown.

The footage, filmed November 11 in California shows Maximus the Aussie Shepherd running onto the grass to steal the ball when he runs it back to the goal line.

“The dog immediately ran into the yard turned around and intercepted the ball from the boys,” said their mum.
