The Missouri-based dog rescue centre found the pup on the 9th of November, and immediately named him the rather long-winded “Narwhal the Little Magical Furry Unicorn”.
They called the little dog this as he appears to have some sort of misplaced tail growing out of his forehead and he, I suppose from a distance you could be tricked into thinking it was a horn.
The rescue centre are now looking for people to adopt Narwhal, who also has a foot injury, apparently. Poor little guy.
In a Facebook post they wrote:
“NEW RESCUE!!! This puppy was just found along with another older dog.
“This puppy has a TAIL COMING OUT OF HIS FOREHEAD and a foot injury of some sort.
“We are thankful this baby and his buddy are safe from the freezing cold. We definitely specialize in special.”
People in the comments fell in love with Narwhal, and the rescue centre cleared up whether or not the tail will be removed, saying:
“Most likely unless there are medical reasons for not removing it. We will rely on our vet to guide us on what is best moving forward.”
One person shared how they thought the dog came to be, saying:
“It was going to be a twin. You know how cells develop from the ass first? so when the cells split, this dog continued developing from the butt all the way to the nose, the other cell was like ‘f this s**t, I ain’t ready’ and stopped developing. so the ass part just stayed there while the other cell developed. so basically this dog has its siblings butt on its forehead.“
Well I’m a fan of the lil’ guy.
