Narwahl is a bit different from other puppies, with a small tail in the middle of its forehead, which is the opposite of where dogs usually have long tails, according to foreign media. The Missouri-based dog rescue group Mac’s Mission spotted Narwhal and another older dog in a cold spot this month.
At that time, the dog’s foot was injured. “So far, the tail of its forehead has not oscillated as we have seen,” the aid group said in an update on its Facebook page. “
Mac’s Mission is understood to be aimed at dogs with special needs, birth defects, injuries or abuse.
On Tuesday, the group took the special puppy to the vet for an X-ray. Mac’s Mission said after the inspection that the extra tail had no practical use other than making Narwhal a distinctive dog.
Veterinarians say there is no need to remove the small tail at this time.
Mac’s Mission suspects that the other dog found that day may have been Narwhal’s father, which could mean That Narwhal is a hybrid of some kind of sausage dog.
Next, Narwhal will undergo sterilization and vaccination. Mac’s Mission will be ready to share the dog’s new movements and whether it was adopted by a well-wisher.
