It’s not often we hear about coaches taking charge off the field, but that’s exactly what happened with former Dallas Cowboys and Oklahoma Sooners Head Coach Barry Switzer this week.
Switzer was walking into a store when he noticed a puppy on a leash in the back of a van in the summer heat.
Switzer said he waited until the owners came out and he bought the full-blood German rottweiler on the spot. He then took the dog straight to the vet.
“I told the doc that I wanted rabies shots, checks for worms, everything,” Switzer said. “They even clipped the toenails, so it was a pedicure for her. She went to the spa.”
Switzer said he can’t keep the dog since he already has several of his own, but he said he plans on hand-picking the family she’ll go to.
