Meet Narwhal, the rescue puppy with a tail growing out of his forehead

Meet Narwhal, the rescue puppy with a tail growing out of his forehead
Narwhal the puppy was found in Missouri with an extra tail growing out of his forehead.

 There’s a 10-week-old puppy in Missouri with a tail growing out of his forehead. Yes, his forehead. No, it doesn’t wag. And, appropriately, his name is Narwhal. Well, his full name is “Narwhal the Little Magical Furry Unicorn,” according to dog rescue nonprofit organization Mac’s Mission, which took him in after he was discovered last Saturday. He was found in the freezing cold, with what appears to be the beginnings of frostbite on one paw. Unlike an actual narwhal whale, which has a protruding canine tooth that resembles a tusk, the tail on Narwhal’s forehead is short and stubby, sprouting right between his eyes—and flops from side to side when he plays. He has a normal tail, too, this one is just extra.

The puppy was discovered by Mac’s Mission, a nonprofit organization for special needs dogs in Missouri. Workers at Mac’s Mission, which specializes in special needs dogs who had been abused or born with defects, say he’s recovering quickly, with the frostbite healing. “He seems completely healthy other than some usual puppy worms he got meds for,” said the organization in a Facebook post.

Vets took X-ray scans which showed the tail isn’t connected to anything. It has no real use, as far as they can tell, but it also doesn’t cause him any pain and there’s no medical reason to remove it—so the forehead tail is here to stay. “The unicorn face tail does not bother Narwhal and he never slows down just like any normal puppy,” said the Facebook post.
