Pup found with second tail sprouting from his head – in the news this week

A not-your-average 10-week-old rescue puppy has been found roaming the streets of Missouri . But what makes this little guy special, you ask? Well, he has a second tail growing out of his forehead!

Christened Narwhal – chosen since his extra tail looks like a tusk – has been given a clean bill of health with x-rays showing no bones in the ‘tail’, so it doesn’t actually wag – sadly.

As long as the extra tail doesn’t cause him any issues, the young pooch will keep his unusual feature to celebrate his ‘uniqueness’ – which we wholeheartedly support!
