*Warning* some of the images may be considered graphic, proceed with caution. Toad, the pup born with two mouths, has gone viral for her unusual case but this story has a happy ending! You can follow Toad and her story on Instagram. As Toads Instagram says, she is simply "... a normal dog with a mouth where her right ear should be". Story first found on AOL.
When Toad was brought into Mutt Misfit Rescue in Oklahoma City, the owner Heather Hernandez immediate took to her. Hernandez told KFOR, that she fell in love with the "special" dog the moment she laid eyes on her and ended up adopting her.
"Her primary veterinarian thinks that maybe she absorbed a twin in utero and so that's kind of how the deformity surfaced," Hernandez said. "The main teeth, the ones you see primarily, they are connected to her skull, so we leave them.
"The second mouth is attached to her esophagus and airways. So, when she drinks a lot of water, when she runs a lot, she gets tired or excited, then it drools a lot." Hernandez added.
"The happiest girl"
"We realized immediately she was different," says Hernandez. "Obviously, the way she looks but, her personality and her bond to me and my family, it was just so immediate. She's one in a million."
Thank you, Heather Hernandez, for your caring heart!
After finding a furever, Toad has double the reason to smile!
