Although most of us are fascinated by hairy animals (cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters, etc…), some of them cause us more fascination than others. Of course, everything they do is immensely adorable: asking for pets by showing their bellies, running like crazy, exploring the house, or simply wagging their tails. But some are special and have been blessed with 2 tails. That’s what today’s story is about, a unicorn puppy with an extra tail on his forehead. Imagine if he were to chase it!

This preciousness is called Narwhal, the little hairy unicorn
He was found wandering in the cold along with an older dog near Mac’s Mission, an animal rescue center in Jackson, Missouri. At the time they saw that it was no ordinary puppy, as it had an extra tail… coming out of its forehead!
He was born with a tail growing out of his forehead
The extra tail reminded their rescuers of the horn of a unicorn… or a narwhal, so they called him Narwhal.
And if you are wondering, no, unfortunately he can’t wag it
Since Mac’s Mission staff posted photos of Narwhal on their Facebook page, people keep asking if he can move that tail. And while it would be adorable, his caregivers explain that the tail is flaccid and they have never seen him move it.

In addition, when he was taken to the vet, they discovered that this extra tail is not really connected to anything and has no real use for the puppy. Dr. Heuring jokingly added: “It looks like the dog has been misassembled. Always follow the instructions!”

There is no reason to remove this unicorn horn from Narwhal, as it does not seem to bother him at all. It’s like any other normal puppy. When he grows a little older, he will be put up for adoption, provided his caretakers make sure the tail doesn’t start to bother him or become a problem.
The tail doesn’t bother the adorable puppy in any way
Seeing that the Internet fell in love with him instantly, he will surely find a home in the blink of an eye.
Apart from its peculiar extra tail, Narwhal seems to be completely healthy
