If there was ever such a thing as a welcome disturbance during a competitive soccer match, this stray dog is the very definition.
The dog, looking for love, ran onto the playing field during a Sunday match between rival teams Torpedo Kutaisi and Dila Gori in the country of Georgia, according to the Associated Press.
The dog appeared to make its way past fans and referees before walking across the pitch and interrupting the game.
But the players were visibly amused by the canine crashing their match.
In the video, a goalkeeper gets the dog to lie on its back and gives it a nice belly rub.
The players managed to wrangle the dog off the field after about three minutes of play time.
The footage is undeniably cute, but people couldn't ignore how the security guards fumbled their attempts to safely lure the pup off the pitch.
There is, apparently, a proper way to handle a rogue dog.
The dog just needed to abide by the proper dress code.
The game ultimately resulted in a tie, according to Time.
