Abandoned 'Unicorn' Puppy Found With Tail Growing From His Head
Despite the unusual growth on his head and an injury to his foot, the pup was in good health and has been nicknamed 'Narwhal the Little Magical Furry Unicorn' by staff at the Missouri-based centre.
Sharing a snap of the dog, Mac's Mission 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 specialise in special."
The post quickly went viral with many people in disbelief over the pooch's extra tail and others asking the all important questions, such as 'does it wag?'
In a follow-up post the centre explained: "The million dollar question about Narwhal's extra tail on his face. Is it connected and does it wag? 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. Always follow the directions people!' 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 (and we all wish it wagged).
"Pretty sure the staff at Cape Small also gushed all over this little nugget! The unicorn face tail does not bother Narwhal and he never slows down just like any normal puppy. He seems completely healthy other than some usual puppy worms he got meds for."
The centre went on to thank everyone for their interest in the little fella's well-being and explained that he isn't being put up for adoption just yet, until they are certain the tail won't cause any problems further down the line.
