Life with canine friends is pure unadulterated joy. Alex Rodriguez understands that well, although he doesn’t boast any pets of his own. Although his official residence is in Miami, he lives the lifestyle of a traveler. One of his daughters is now away at college, while the younger one just entered high school. It’s perhaps not the best environment for a dog but that doesn’t mean the family is not fond of them.

Interestingly, the former New York Yankees player once bought a puppy with his ex-fiancee Jennifer Lopez. Fortunately, it wasn’t for the two of them as a couple, because they broke off their engagement in 2021. But the gift of the adorable goldendoodle pup was for J-Lo’s son, Max, when he was 12 years old. Although A-Rod might not get to meet the Lopezes anymore, his love for dogs is well and alive.

Since his daughter just joined Michigan as a freshman, it’s understandable that he misses her presence around the house. So as any parent will do, the retired Yankees player paid a visit to Natasha Rodriguez at school. And the two ended up attending Michigan’s Wolverines game against the UNLV Rebels. A-Rod posted an adorable clip to his Instagram of Victor the Frisbee Dog on the field ahead of the match-up.

It shows the four-legged creature making a run for the frisbee and catching it out of the air to loud applause from the filled stadium. Someone records the moment on camera, which then turns to Alex Rodriguez applauding loudly with a grin on his face. The father-daughter duo even clicked a sweet picture with the dog later on, which the ex-shortstop posted on Instagram.
