No, this puppy did NOT come from the Chernobyl pound, but yes — this is a tale of 2 tails … including the one growing out of the doggo’s forehead.
The little guy’s name is Narwhal, and he’s a recent rescue at Mac’s Mission Animal Rescue in Jackson, Missouri. The founder of the joint, Rochelle Steffen, says prospective owners need not worry about Narwhal’s extra appendage — “He had x-rays and a vet visit (Tuesday) and is a perfectly healthy puppy, with an extra tail no his face.”
She adds the foretail doesn’t require surgery, and doesn’t seem to be giving him any harm at the moment.
Rochelle says her staff found Narwhal — a Daschund and Beagle mix, they think — recently at a dump site, and took him in to help find him a forever home.
Either way, Narwhal is just as rambunctious as any other puppy — mind your shoes — and doesn’t seem too bent about being named after a whale that has a tusk growing out of its head.
Based on how lovable and unique he is, something tells us he’ll be scooped up quickly.
Who’s a good boy? Who’s a good boy … with 2 tails??
