Meet Harslo, the incredible Irish hound with his own unique balancing act

A DACHSHUND from Belfast has gained thousands of followers online thanks to his amazing head-balancing skills.

Harley, better known by his stage name Harslo the Incredible Balancing Hound, lives in Belfast with his owners Paul and Jennifer.

The two-year-old gained attention after displaying his incredible knack for balancing random objects on his head.

Vodka shots, crisps, toilet roll, basketballs or pizza slices – you name it, Harslo has balanced it upon his incredible skull.

Harslo has become so popular that followers from across the globe regularly send him objects to add to his collection of feats.

"He just has the flattest head," Harslo's owner Paul told Belfast Live. "He can't do any normal tricks, sit or anything. Balancing things on his head is the only thing he can do.

"He loves balancing, some people message saying that he looks sad but that's just his face! It's how they look! He loves it.

"It all started with a toy chicken and Harley was a natural. It's all a bit of fun but it's hard to keep on top of all the social media accounts - especially since Twitter has gone crazy.

"It's just totally taken off, when Jen first set up the Instagram I laughed at her and asked 'who is going to be interested in this?"

How wrong he was!

There's probably nothing Harslo can't balance on his tiny head:
