Rescue Puppy Named Narwhal Has An Extra Tail On His Head


This rescue puppy named Narwhal is getting the love of many people around the world as he has a surprising physical feature that makes him extra special.

Narwhal has an extra tail on his head, but he is ‘perfectly healthy.’ He is like a cute little unicorn.

The tail hangs down to his snout and looks just like normal tail, except for its unusual position.

When Mac’s Mission, an animal rescue centre, found Narwhal, he was wandering the cold streets of Jackson, Missouri with his “brother.”

They immediately saw his extra tail and decided to name him Narwhal. A narwhal is a type of whale that has a large unicorn-like tusk.

To make sure that his tail was not dangerous and would not cause him any harm, his saviors took him to the vet.

The vet that took care of the puppy had not seen this phenomenon either! The tail does not wag, it is not really connected to anything. It does not have an actual functionality and does not necessarily have to bother him either.

Dr. Brian Heuring was the vet who examined Narwhal. He said, “I’ve been a veterinarian for 16 years, and I’ve never seen anything like this. It certainly looks just like a tail, but we did X-rays, and it’s all just skin.”

Narwhal is likely a Dachshund-terrier mix and probably has some golden retriever in him.

This adorable puppy will not be listed for adoption until he is grown a bit more and his carers can be sure that the tail will not cause him problems.

So, now, his normal routine is being a sweet puppy who is receiving so much love.
