Narwhal Is a Unicorn Pupper That’s Making the Internet Swoon

 

An adorable little puppy went viral on the internet this week for a very unique tail growing out of his head. Aptly-named Narwhal, this precious boy is a 10-week-old puppy from Missouri who reached internet fame for his infamous little Superman curl. 

Narwhal grew to fame as people began asking questions about his little face-tail in his photos, and in no time, the organization was flooded with requests of adoption. According to international news source CNN, Narwhal is part of a dog rescue nonprofit organization called Mac’s Mission, which “took him in after he was discovered last Saturday.” 

Before he became the cheerful little pup in the videos, Narwhal was rescued just in time before being frozen to death, what with the rescuers finding him “with what appears to be the beginnings of frostbite on one paw.” 

Narwhal was also found with another older dog, which they had named Poppa Smurf, a Dachshund-Terrier mix. This has led the organization to speculate that Narwhal may also have some Dachshund in him.

After nursing him back to health, the organization was instantly curious and enamored by the tail growing out of his head. It looked like a horn, sitting in the middle of his forehead, and when his photos circulated, people asked if it presented any health problems to the dog whatsoever, or if it would be taken out. 

The good news, to those who appreciate Narwhal’s extra tail, is that it is not harmful in any way and that the organization will not have it removed, even though upon closer inspection, the surgery will just be cosmetic at best. 

In fact, after X-ray scans of the tail, the vets have concluded that not only does the extra tail have no apparent use, it isn’t connected to anything either. It also isn’t painful for Narwhal, so it’s most likely just a mutation while he was in the womb.

People have already lovingly called him many names. At some point, he was called “corndog,” a mix of “unicorn” and “dog.”

While the organization appreciates the overflowing requests to take Narwhal home, they are happy to share that there are other dogs available for adoption as well.
