The Missouri rescue organization Mac's Mission has rescued plenty of puppies and older dogs in its time, but none has captured the internet's attention quite like a 10-week-old puppy called "Narwhal the Little Magical Furry Unicorn."

Why the unicorn moniker? Because of his magical horn, of course. The puppy has what appears to be an extra tail on his face.

He was found on November 8 with another older dog, "dumped in rural Missouri, where we have hundreds dumped," Mac's Mission told Insider.

Immediately, Narwhal's adorable face was hard to resist.

While Narwhal may not be the traditional version of "perfect," it's what makes him perfect for Mac's Mission. The animal shelter says it "specializes in special" and focuses on "the homeless 'janky' dogs who would die without us."

We wouldn't dare call Narwhal janky, but the extra tail could have been what led to his abandonment. He was also brought in with a foot injury.

He went to the vet for some X-rays, and the vet concluded that the tail wasn't attached to anything and shouldn't hinder Narwhal at all.

"He is in no pain and plays for hours," Mac's Mission said — it just adds to him being "the COOLEST PUPPY EVER!"

Unsurprisingly, Narwhal was a hit at the vet too.

For now, Narwhal is still waiting to get neutered and vaccinated before being put up for adoption. Mac's Mission also wants to make sure the tail won't be a problem as this little guy grows.

Will Narwhal let all the fame go to his head? Maybe — but for now, he's just busy being a puppy.

  1. Just the cutest little guy. I hope he finds the perfect home with a perfect family that will love him just because he's who he is. :)

    I lost my Luna in Spetember 8. It was a fox-terrier, same color as this litle one. If I found it, I would adopt it right way! It is adorable!
