The only thing cuter than a tiny puppy at a rescue home is one with an entire extra tail growing out of his face. Sorry, I don’t make the rules.
A 10-week-old puppy with an extra face tail was abandoned in Missori. He was taken by in animal rescue organisation Mac’s Mission, and is currently THRIVING being the centre of attention worldwide.
His rescuers named him Narwhal, after the species of whale with a single tusk. Just to make my self extra clear here, as well as having a tail where they usually go (the back), Narwhal also has a tiny little tail growing out of his forehead.
FACE TAIL. Or, as it also kinda looks like, face dick.
The important question: no, sadly the tail does not wag. However, it doesn’t get in the way, either, so there’s no medical reason for it to be removed.
“The unicorn face tail does not bother Narwhal and he never slows down just like any normal puppy,” Mac’s Mission founder Rochelle Steffen said on Facebook.
“He seems completely healthy other than some usual puppy worms he got meds for.”
In another post, she added: “We think he appreciates not being outside in this terrible freezing snow mess.”
“The extra tail is not connected to anything and has no real use other than making him the COOLEST PUPPY EVER!” his foster parents said on Facebook.
You’ve never needed to see anything as badly in your life as a video of Narwhal playing with his toys. Well good news because there’s TWO OF THEM.
Accordingly to the Mac’s Mission website, it specialises in “homeless ‘janky’ dogs who would die without us. The injured, abused, and birth defects, that is our mission.”
Narwhal has obviously gone viral, because why wouldn’t he. Photos and videos of this precious boy have received tens of thousands of likes, comments, shares, etc.
Steffen said “being viral helps ALL our special needs dogs here at the Mission”, as the place runs “100%” on donations.
Sadly you cannot fly to Missouri and adopt Narwhal right this second. His foster parents are making sure he’s completely healthy before finding him a forever home – and ensuring the tail doesn’t experience a sudden growth spurt.
“He is not available for adoption immediately as we want him to grow a bit more and truly make sure the tail doesn’t become a bother or problem,” Steffen said.
“Right now he is pretty much the most unique amazing example of what we do here and we are so thankful to have the chance to be part of his journey.”
Will I rest until Narwhal finds forever loving parents? Not even a little bit.
