On November 9, in Missouri (USA), the abandoned little dog Narwhal was found frozen by the Mac’s Mission animal rescue station. However, what made the rescuers even stranger was that Narwhal had two tails, one of which was in the center of his forehead.

The vets took x-rays for Narwhal to check and found that this particular tail was not connected to anything in the body. It didn’t function like a real tail, nor did it cause pain or discomfort for Narwhal.
Therefore, doctors have no reason to remove it, and the tail on the narwhal’s forehead is still held up as a peculiarity of the dog.
“Narwhal doesn’t mind the unicorn-shaped tail, the dog is also agile and plays like a normal dog.”
At the same time, caregivers at the Mission’s Mac Rescue Station also said the frost damage to the narwhal is now recovering quickly.
“The narwhal appears to be in perfect health and it is not the same as taking a worm killer dog,” the animal rescue organization announced on Facebook.

Ultimately, in order for Narwhal to always have a family of her own, Ms. Steffen decided to take the dog to her house.
“At first I had no intention of adopting a dog… But I didn’t want Narwhal to be treated any differently from a normal dog, just because of his difference. So now I have decided to train him to be a therapeutic dog to help patients.
