A puppy with a tail growing from the middle of its forehead has become a superstar after its video goes viral on the internet. It was abandoned and left in the ‘freezing cold’.
Rescue organisation Mac’s Mission found the pup, which also had a foot injury.
The dog has been named ‘Narwhal the Little Magical Furry Unicorn’. And it has quickly established a huge fan base after videos were uploaded on Facebook.
The Missouri-based centre ‘specialises in special’ and looks to help dogs who have been abused, injured or have birth defects who would die without their help.
The puppy was taken to the vets, after being reassured by staff it wasn’t going to be scary, to try and find out why the tail is there if it was connected, and most importantly if it can wag.
After the appointment, the centre wrote: “The extra tail is not connected to anything and has no real use other than making him the COOLEST PUPPY EVER!
“One of our followers said ‘it appears they assembled the puppy wrong.”
“This is a true experience of having ‘extra parts’ during assembly.
Dr. Heuring said there is no real reason at this time for the unicorn tail to be removed. The unicorn face tail does not bother Narwhal and he never slows down just like any normal puppy.
