The viral rescue puppy that was born with a tail on his head is going to be staying at the shelter for a little while. The shelter is growing worried that people applying have bad intentions for the pup.
Narwhal is "a perfectly healthy puppy, with an extra tail on his face" who was rescued by Mac's Mission Animal Rescue in Jackson, Missouri.
After the shelter received hundreds of applications for the dog, the founder postponed the adoption for at least two months. She stated it was highly unusual to get one application for a "special" dog, let alone hundreds.
Rochelle says they've never had a dog like Narwhal, so they want to keep him and let him get bigger while they monitor the tail and make sure there are no negative health effects. If all's well in 2 months, they will put him back up for adoption, but she says they'll likely add a few questions to narrow down prospective candidates.
