Abandoned ‘Unicorn’ Puppy with Tail Growing from Head Goes Viral After Being Rescued from the Cold

An adorable, one-of-a-kind puppy with a tail growing from his forehead was rescued from the cold after being abandoned and has since found his forever home!


A puppy was found lost and wandering in the cold. But this is not an ordinary puppy—this puppy has two tails! The puppy’s tail is on its forehead. The sweet canine has a growth protruding in between his eyes. The tail in front of his eyes does not wag though.

Missouri-based rescue organization Mac’s Mission picked up the pup from the freezing cold. Mac’s named him “Narwhal the Little Magical Furry Unicorn.” The staff took the pup to the vet to figure out what was wrong with him. The x-rays revealed that nothing was wrong with the pup, the staff states it has “no real use other than making him the COOLEST PUPPY EVER!”

Narwhal is a happy pup, that runs around energetically. The double tail isn’t slowing him down. The staff shared, “The unicorn face tail does not bother Narwhal and he never slows down just like any normal puppy. He seems completely healthy other than some usual puppy worms he got meds for.”

The mission posted an image to social that has garnered some attention. The image of the pup says “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.” Narwhal is bringing awareness to the special work shelters provide for special needs dogs.

And then there is this and we couldn’t agree more:
