In the United States, an abandoned puppy in Missouri became famous due to its physical ‘unicorn’ defect it was born with. The puppy had a tail-like growth on its forehead.
The dog was named Narwhal, similar to the whale which has a sort of long tooth on its head. With the genetic defect Norwhal, who was placed for adoption, touched many people’s hearts…however not everyone’s.
The organisation who is looking after Narwhal stated that it changed the idea of finding the dog a family and will keep it due to the amount of threats it received against the puppy.
The Mac the Pitbull organisation said it received ugly messages against Narwhal, with some saying that the dog is not God’s creature and some even saying it should be beheaded.
