The 'Gold Forever' star's canine companion beats the likes of Zayn Malik's dog in the social media awards.

The Wanted's dog Benson has been named as the winner of the Shorty Award 2013 for the best non-human in social media.

The annual awards honour those achievements made in social media and Benson beat off competition from the likes of Zayn Malik's dog Boris.

"Benson the dog here would like us to thank you all for his Short best non human award," said the band as they helped the canine with his acceptance speech.

"As you can tell he's over come with emotion. Thank you very much from Benson."

The awards were held at the Times Center in New York this week and also honoured Justin Bieber as having the best celebrity use of Twitter.

The group have spent much of 2013 across the pond as they film for their new E! reality TV series.
