Nobody knows his original name, because this cute black dog was abandoned. But Ronaldog was such a friendly, affectionate and playful dog that he was adopted by the Simpkins family.

Ronaldog joined the Simpkins’ house when he was still a small puppy and since then he showed a special interest in footballs. He didn’t like other toys, he just liked balls that were far bigger than he was.

His skill with the ball started to increase. According to Peter Simpkins, “we had a lot of fun watching him try to control the ball when he was a puppy, but he soon improved his skills“.

Because of that, they decided to find a name more in line with his abilities. They chose Ronaldog, in honor of the famous soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo.
