Belfast pooch Harslo is now in great company as he joins Will Smith, Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey as a nominee at the prestigious New York ceremony.

Performing pooch Harlso looks set to hit the big time after being nominated for a Webby award.

The clever canine Harslo became an internet sensation for his unique trick of balancing bizarre items on his head.

And now he’s in great company as he joins Will Smith, Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey as a nominee at the prestigious New York ceremony.

Harlso, a five-year-old Dachshund from Belfast, became an accidental celebrity when owners Paul Lavery and Jennifer Scott discovered his ability to balance a toy chicken.

Since then, he has shown off his skills with everything from pints to ­pineapples and Toblerones, and he’s always suitably dressed for the ­occasion with ­custom bow ties made by Jennifer.

'He's Quite Stubborn By Nature'

The couple hopes to travel to New York for next month’s event, but only if they can figure out a way to travel in comfort with Harlso.

Paul explained: “We’d never put Harlso in the cargo of a plane, which makes it a problem for flying back to the UK and Ireland.
