Meet Narwhal, The Puppy Born With An Extra Tail On His Head

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? Mac's Mission, the organisation told an global media outlet that the dog was found on November 8 with another dog dumped in rural Missouri.

An X-Ray at the vets showed the tail has no use and is not attached to anything.

Although it looks like a tail, Narwhal can not wag it. She said that 'We do not want to adopt him out and two weeks later it does become an issue'.

Though Narwhal's special feature is being termed as a tail, it's an appendage growing from his forehead.

A staff member of the organization shared a sweet photo of the puppy that has captured hearts online.

While Narwhal's extra tail may not wiggle or waggle, this rescued puppy certainly has another one that does.

Mac's Mission has additionally cared earlier for a canine with 5 legs, blind and deaf animals, a three-legged dachshund, in addition to canine with cleft palates and mange. "Then my million-dollar question was, 'Did the tail wag?"'

The centre went on to thank everyone for their interest in the little fella's well-being and explained that he isn't being put up for adoption just yet, until they are certain the tail won't cause any problems further down the line.

He's also earned the nickname "Narwhal the Little Magical Furry Unicorn". "We deal with such unique animals here that we love to let them keep their uniqueness". We think he appreciates not being outside in this awful freezing snow mess. Pictures and videos of Narwhal have gone viral on social media and have also helped spread awareness of the rescue organisation's work.

Accordingly to the Mac's Mission website, it specialises in "homeless "janky" dogs who would die without us".

"Right now he is pretty much the most unique wonderful example of what we do here and we are so thankful to have the chance to be part of his journey", the rescue mission wrote on Facebook.

Still, Narwhal's caregivers are taking every precaution, and have established that they will not give him up for adoption until they watch him grow a bit more and ensure without a shadow of a doubt that his tail won't grow anymore.
