    A spherical dog in Japan has become an internet sensation.

    “Her personality is mature and slow paced,” Nanae told SWNS, as per the New York Post. “I don’t know why she’s so popular, she always gets looked at on the street and I get asked all the time what breed she is.”

    Nanae uploads short clips of her fluffy, brown dog playing with toys and posing at home.
