Yes, his forehead. No, not a wobble. And, appropriately, his name is Narwal.
Unlike an actual narwhal whale that has a protruding canine tooth resembling a tusk, the tail of Narval's forehead is short and stubborn, penetrates precisely between his eyes – and jumps from side to side when playing. It also has a normal tail, this one is just extra.
Workers at Mac & # 39; s Mission, which specializes in dogs with special needs that have been abused or born with defects, say it recovers quickly with the treatment of frostbite.
"It looks completely healthy, unlike some ordinary puppy worms for which it received medication," the organization said in a Facebook post.
Veterinarians took X-ray studies that showed that the tail was not related to anything. As far as they know, it has no real benefit, but it also causes no pain and no medical reason to remove it ̵
He was found with another dog, whom the rescuers speculate might be his father. This older dog, which is christened a papal smurf, is a mix of a Dashond terrier – so they suggest that Narhal may also have some dashond in it.
It's unclear what happened to the two before being discovered, but a spokesman for the Mack Mission said CNN Narwhal is from rural Missouri in the Midwest and loves to play – and now he has thousands of fans online after his special tail catapulting him to internet fame.
Linking attention online "crazy", the spokesman added that employees "feel like a dream."
It's not ready for acceptance yet, the Mac Mission said online – but that hasn't stopped Narwhal's fans from wanting to take him home. The organization has already received more than 50 requests for adoption, a spokesman for CNN said.
Narchal is likely to be included in the adoption list after becoming older and undergoing more medical procedures such as vaccinations. Staff say they also want to monitor his unicorn horn a little longer to make sure it doesn't grow or will become a problem.
"Everyone is super interested in him," said the spokesman – but "we hope they see the other dogs available!"
