PUPPY WITH “TWO NOSES” NEEDS A HOME - 'It's a defect in his palate which gives him the appearance of having two noses as his nostrils can move completely independently of each other.”
A four-month-old Belgian Malinois mix named Snuffles has what appears to be two noses. It’s actually a defect which separates his nostrils, thus giving the appearance that he has two noses. Snuffles is able to control each nostril separately. He has been at the Dogs Trust rehoming center in Glasgow, but is having trouble finding someone to adopt him. Read more from the Daily Mail:
He has a rare congenital defect which gives him the appearance of having two noses.
Vet Angela McAllister said: ‘Instead of his nostrils being fused together he’s got some sort of split there.
'It's a defect in his palate which gives him the appearance of having two noses as his nostrils can move completely independently of each other.
'I've never seen the condition in my 20-year career.'
As other dogs around him are rehomed, he is struggling to attract a new owner, despite being at the centre for more than a month.
He is only four-months old and has already been in four previous homes in his short life.
But he has been given an endearing name by staff to make him feel at home.
To add to his unique appearance Snuffles can also move both noses independently of each other.
The centre’s manager Sandra Lawton said: ‘We take in hundreds of dogs of all shapes and sizes but I have never seen anything quite like Snuffles.
'It is such a shame to think that this sweet-natured lad may not find the loving home he deserves just because he may not be considered a pretty pooch.

What makes the gemstone stunning is that it looks like an underwater view of the ocean floor as light shines through it. There’s a surreal quality about the gemstone that looks like a pocket-sized aquarium. The treasure is a very rare Oregon opal shown in its dry state. The seller says, “This material has hydrophane properties and can be greatly enhanced when soaked in water, but I don’t believe that accurately portrays the opal being offered.”
