Pup Named 'Narwhal' Has A Tail Growing From His Head

Meet Narwhal! Paw-bably the best name ever for this individual pup! Why? Narwhal has a tail growing exactly where a Narwhal's horn would be! 

Some are even calling it a 'unicorn horn.'

Narwhal might be the rarest pup around! Being a "magical unicorn" and all. Mac's Mission, a Missouri-based rescue, found Narwhal wandering outside in the freezing cold with another, older pup. Mac's Mission came to the rescue and they were surprised to find a little growth protruding from between the little pup's eyes. 

While the growing tail is completely nonfunctional, luckily it is not attached to anything life threatening! The experienced vet saw no reason at this time for the unicorn tail to be removed. 

We love you, Narwhal! Two tails just makes you twice as cute!

    The rescuers at Mac's mission had this to say about Narwhal, "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."

    Though Narwhal will be in need of a forever home at some point in the future, the organisation have decided to keep hold of him for the time being to allow him to grow a bit more and ensure the tail doesn’t become a hindrance.

    Text - mikerockitjones 3.3k points 11 hours ago Im curious if it will remain the same length or grow as he grows. Reply Give Award Share Report Save I_happen_to_disagree 2.0k points 8 hours ago According to another commenter, the x-ray show tiny cartilage in it so it is pretty likely it will grow.
