“Narwhal the Little Magical Furry Unicorn” has a permanent kiss curl on his forehead and if this doesn't make him cool, then I don't know what will.
Anything closely associated with dogs and cats and anything else furry has the power to melt my otherwise stone-cold heart into warm mush. Especially dogs, and it's safe to say that I have a soft corner for them. Not so surprisingly, I squealed with excitement when I saw a picture of a precious snowflake that had two tails. Also, this pupper now makes me believe in magic because the second tail sprouts from its forehead, which makes this adorable little thing a unicorn. Who says they don't exist? This magical cutie was found skirting the streets by a Missouri-based dog rescue center called Mac’s Mission on November 9th, according to VT.
The rescuers took to their Facebook page to share the news with the world. They wrote: "NEW RESCUE!!! This puppy was just found along with another older dog. This puppy has a TAIL COMING OUT OF HIS FOREHEAD and a foot injury of some sort. We are thankful this baby and his buddy are safe from the freezing cold. We definitely specialize in special."
Naming the doggo was a no-brainer as the tail from its forehead made it look like a unicorn, and that was that. The tail is not functional, as such. What it does do, is add to his good looks! "So far the tail in his forehead does not wag that we have seen. We have also named him “Narwhal the Little Magical Furry Unicorn”. He is perfect and your donations allow us to save unicorns like him, thank you."
The rescuers kept updating the people about Narwhal's status and they said that they were planning on taking him to the vet to see if the tail was harmful. They shared some really cute videos of Narwhal playing and he certainly seems relieved to be in a cozy place and not out in the cold. Soon after they dropped by the vet's they decided to clarify some of the several questions they'd been getting about Narwhal and his tail.
"The million-dollar question about Narwhals extra tail on his face. Is it connected and does it wag? The extra tail is not connected to anything and has no real use other than making him the COOLEST PUPPY EVER! Dr. Heuring said there is no real reason at this time for the unicorn tail to be removed (and we all wish it wagged)!! Pretty sure the staff at Cape Small also gushed all over this little nugget! 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. He 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!"
It honestly looks like a kiss curl and that's just another reason to slobber him with kisses. The rescuers then said that even though they've been getting several requests for adoption, they've decided to keep him for a while. Or, at least until they make sure that the unicorn tail is not going to cause him any trouble, like have a growth spurt or become an issue. Also, they're keeping the tail!
