Abandoned 'Unicorn' Puppy Found With Tail Growing Out Of His Head Goes Viral
A one-of-a-kind puppy who has been dubbed a 'magical unicorn' because of a tail growing on his head has now had hundreds of offers of adoption.
Missouri-based rescue charity Mac's Mission found the pup, Narwhal, out in the freezing cold last week abandoned, so it begs the question: did his owners abandon him because of his unusual birth defect? If so, they are heartless - look at how cute his face is!
The poor dog was also struggling with a foot injury, but the rescuers were most surprised by the growth protruding from between his eyes.
Currently there is "no medical need" to remove the tail either, as it is causing him no pain.
The organisation that found the little dog shared the picture on Facebook, explaining they'd called him Narwhal the Little Magical Furry Unicorn because of his unique appearance and since, he has gone viral.
And in an attempt to discover why Narwhal was born with the second tail, Mac's Mission took him to the vet, where an X-Ray took a closer look.
The organisation said on Facebook that the photo showed the tail isn't connected to anything so "has no real use other than making him the COOLEST PUPPY EVER!".
And they have gone on to share plenty of adorable pictures of the pooch and videos of him playing enthusiastically like any other young dog would - nothing will hold Narwhal back!
For now though, he will be staying with the charity, just in case that tail ends up causing him any problems, but eventually he will be looking for a forever home and he will come complete with his magical 'unicorn' forehead. He might not be 'perfect' but who is? This little dog is special!

We know what you're thinking, does this secondary tail wag? Sadly it does not, so you will have to check his regular one to see if he's happy to see you when you get home.
Now, the adorable pup is so famous, he's already getting hundreds of offers of adoption.
One said: "I would come from WI to adopt him if he is still available. Would love to fill out an adoption form."
And the bonus is, Mac's Mission has been made famous because of it. Now, everybody in the world knows what this organisation does - caring for animals predominantly with special needs, with a motto of "we specialize in special".
The staff even shared a response from Narwhal himself to Facebook:
"It's me Narwhal!! I don't understand what viral is but my foster mama said my story being viral helps ALL our special needs dogs here at the Mission. You are welcome.
"I am super excited for being the poster child for 'special is awesome'. Sleep tight, k thanks, Narwhally."
He's proving to people everywhere, you don't need to look like everyone else and that different really is great.
