When we encounter a special needs dog, we often see dogs that are missing body parts. However, have you ever seen one who has an extra body part instead? It’s hard to believe, but there’s a puppy out there with an extra tail. It’s located on his head.
His name is Narwhal, and he’s a puppy that resembles a unicorn. It’s an apt description seeing how rare his condition is. According to the vet, there’s no real medical necessity for the extra tail to be removed.
Since the extra tail poses no danger to Narwhal’s life, Rochelle, the rescuer, wants to keep the extra tail intact. According to Rochelle, she handles a lot of special needs dogs. That’s why she believes that it’s in their best interest to keep what makes the dogs unique.
For Narwhal, it’s his other tail. That’s something he will carry with him when he grows up. It’s something to be proud of, his own unique symbol. You don’t see a dog like Narwhal every day.
The unicorn puppy is in excellent health condition. The vets couldn’t figure out the presence of the extra tail. Narwhal was really fortunate that it’s not a risk. If the puppy were able to wag his other tail, it would probably be a different story.
There’s a lot of positive reactions online about Narwhal. Some suggest imagining how cute it would be if the tail would grow or even move. Others jokingly say it looks more like a windshield wiper. There are also people pointing out that other parts of Narwhal’s body, particularly the ears, are also very cute.
We can all agree that this is one rare puppy. The extra tail indeed makes Narwhal looks like a magical unicorn. A small, fluffy, adorable unicorn. To find more about this dog, watch the video below.
