CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (WTNH) — An animal rescue in Missouri found an abandoned puppy with a very unique ‘appendage’: a tail growing out of his forehead.
On November 8th, Mac the Pittbull, a non-profit animal rescue, found a puppy along with an older dog abandoned in the freezing cold.
In a Facebook post, MTP wrote that the puppy had a foot injury and a mysterious “TAIL GROWING OUT OF HIS FOREHEAD.”
The organization named the puppy “Narwhal the Little Magical Furry Unicorn” and posted updates about the puppy on Facebook over the next week, following the mystery of the second tail.
MTP reported that the tail does not wag and does not seem to bother the very special little ‘unicorn.’
After a visit to the vet Wednesday, MTP wrote that the tail is not, in fact, connected to anything.
In their update, MTP wrote that the vet said there is no real reason for the ‘unicorn tail’ to be removed and that the puppy is completely healthy, “other than some usual puppy worms he got meds for.”
Right now he is pretty much the most unique amazing example of what we do here and we are so thankful to have the chance to be part of his journey. Thank you everyone for helping us help them!– Mac the Pittbull on Facebook
The “COOLEST PUPPY EVER” is not yet available for adoption. The organization says they want him to grow a bit more and make sure the tail doesn’t pose a problem as he gets bigger.
