This adorable pug from Belfast who can't run is going viral

Meet Loca.

MEET LOCA, AN adorable little pug from Belfast.

In 2012, her owners uploaded this song written from Loca’s point of view about how she “can’t fecking run”. Sample lyric?

Well hello my name is Loca,
And I’m a special pug,
I live in Belfast, Ireland,
And me favourite thing’s a hug

Over two years later, the video is going viral again after it was shared over on Reddit. Take a gander at it yourself and just try not to get it stuck in your head.

As for why Loca can’t run? According to her owners, she suffers from a mild brain disorder.

It is operable but risky and as the vet says she is unaware anything is  wrong with her and will live a long and healthy life, we decided not to risk losing her.

It seems people can’t get enough of Loca. Over on Facebook, the pug has amassed nearly 46,000 likes (!) and has over 1,500 followers on Twitter.

She even has her very own calendar. Move over, Beyoncé.
