Unique 'unicorn' puppy with tail on its forehead has been adopted

Narwal the 'unicorn' puppy who went viral for the tail on his forehead has found his forever home.

The adorable pooch has consistently been in the headlines over the past few weeks due to his unique appearance capturing the hearts of people all over the world.

To see how adorable Narwhal is when he's playing, check out the video below:

"He had x-rays and a vet visit... and is a perfectly healthy puppy, with an extra tail on his face," Steffen said. "There is no medical need to remove it currently and it is a third the size of his actual tail."

"He is in no pain and plays for hours," she added.

So who is the lucky adopter of the 10-week-old puppy? It's Rochelle Steffen, the founder of Mac's Mission - a nonprofit dog's rescue. Despite having no intention of adopting the puppy, Steffen said that she simply couldn't let him go after his story went viral.

"I had no intention initially of keeping him," Steffen told the Southeast Missourian. "It’s not just a decision from me. The whole rescue cannot fathom him leaving. We all fell in love with him."

Here is more of Narwhal being his adorable self: 

"If somebody is going to make money off of him, I would love to see it go toward the rescue, and save thousands more dogs," Steffen said.

Mac's Mission was established to help dogs with deformities, clefts and trauma "since those get euthanized far more than any others and there is a great need to give them a chance," Steffens told ABC News. "We give them that chance."

Steffen explained that the majority of the non-profit's support comes from social media and Narwhal's story has been "majorly epic for so many new folks to find out about our little awesome rescue."

"We really love our little Narwhal and the others he is helping here with the attention!"
