Meet Narwhal, the puppy with a tail on his face
The pup, aptly named “Narwhal” for the tail’s tusk-like location, has gone viral online, racking up thousands of likes on Facebook. A 10-week-old abandoned puppy with a secondary tail, in the middle of his head, has been taken in by an animal rescue centre in Missouri.
Staff at Mac’s Mission, which is predominantly for animals with special needs, have called the puppy Narwhal.
They had been told there was “no medical need to remove” the extra tail as it caused him no pain, they said.
"Perfectly healthy" rescue puppy named Narwhal has a surprising physical feature that makes him extra special.

This is Narwhal. He has a tail growing out of his head. It is completely nonfunctional and is not attached to anything life threatening pic.twitter.com/uEttKo7Bf1
