Lionel Messi took to Instagram on Tuesday to reveal a new member of his family—a pet dog!

The adorable mutt was a gift from his partner, Antonella Roccuzzo.

The Barcelona star has yet to reveal a name, but Ivan Ruffitic, Sergio Woofsquets and Marc Barktra will all be acceptable. 

If he is intending on calling it Rosie and giving it a bank account, he should know that someone else already tried that trick.
