Dog Becomes Famous on Instagram for His 'Hidden-Talent' of Balancing Objects on Head
The owner was surprised to see that instead of fidgeting and allowing the toy to drop, the pup stood still ensuring that the toy did not fall from his head.
Dogs, considered to be faithful friends of man, have been ruling the social media for quite some time now. Remember, a video of golden retriever holding up his toy in the air like a baby and then tossing it around as it plays? Now, another adorable five-year old dachshund has started ruling the internet for balancing a slew of random objects on his head. The "hidden talent" of the dog has left the owner amazed.
Turns out, the owner Paul Lavery (30), had initially placed a toy on his pet’s head as a joke. However, he was surprised to see that instead of fidgeting and allowing the toy to drop, the pup stood as still as a statue, ensuring that the toy did not fall from his head.
Not just toys, the pup can balance a range of objects on his head be it a glass full of water, a slice of pizza, plant pots, fruits, donuts and many more.
The pup has an Instagram page with the name harlso_the_balancing_hound, which has over 1.13 lakh followers.
"We got him five years ago and we just fell in love with him at first sight and brought him home. For us, we didn't know he knew any tricks, we tried teaching him to sit, lie down, roll over and he wasn't interested," Lavery told Fox13news.com. Lavery claimed, "When he was about two years old I sat a chicken toy on his head and he just sat there looking at it really still."
