'Britain's Got Talent' Dog

Schedule Too Ruff

to Do 'American Idol'

The dog who won "Britain's Got Talent" just rejected an offer to appear on the "American Idol" finale, TMZ has learned, because the talented canine is too busy being famous.

Sources tell TMZ ... Pudsey the dog and 17-year old owner Ashleigh were asked to appear live on the "Idol" stage -- it's unclear if they would perform -- but when producers called about the potential gig ... they were met with a big, fat NO.

The reason behind the rejection ... we're told Pudsey and Ashleigh have been getting offers round-the-clock since winning the UK's talent competition ... and the pair is literally too busy to squeeze in an "Idol" appearance.

Good news is ... we're told Pudsey will be making trips to NYC and L.A. soon for OTHER major TV appearances -- just not "Idol" -- and will meet with several producers as well.

Take that, Uggie.

Ashleigh was probably worried Steven would give the dog fleas.

Thank you poochie. Those two finalists have worked too hard to let the producers pimp their other ventures and detract from the singers. It's bad enough we get commercials nonstop, even within the show via their dumb Ford videos.

Let's keep our eyes on the ball, Idol, and stop with the stupid shena****ns.

that is some talented dog that it can rejected an offer to appear on the "American Idol" finale. I didn't know dogs can reject offers and can speak for themselves

She's had that dog since she was 11yrs old, and cares for him deeply. He's been pushed to do a lot the past week, and I'm sure she feels the stress of that long ass flight right now wouldn't be fare to him.
