Vet Says Pup with Tail Growing Out Its Head is Perfectly Healthy and Super Adorable
A 10-week-old pup named Narwhal has captivated the Internet with his tiny tail growing out of his head. Sadly, Narwhal was found abandoned along with another older dog, but was thankfully rescued by Mac’s Mission in Jackson, Missouri.
Mac’s Mission is a small, grassroots non-profit that:
“specializes in special”, our focus is on the homeless “janky” dogs who would die without us. The injured, abused, and birth defects, that is our mission. Shelters and rescues do not have the time or resources that we do so most of these special dogs get sadly euthanized. Our hope is to give them the chance they need to thrive and heal in an environment full of love and caring. [source]
After a visit to the vet, Dr. Heuring found ‘no medical need to remove’ the extra tail as it caused him no pain and was no connected to anything vital. Deemed non-life threatening, the little tail served no purpose other than to make him the ‘coolest’ puppy ever.
“He [Narwhal] is not available for adoption immediately as we want him to grow a bit more and truly make sure the tail doesn’t become a bother or problem. Right now he is pretty much the most unique amazing example of what we do here and we are so thankful to have the chance to be part of his journey. Thank you everyone for helping us help them!” – Mac’s Mission
