Every dog is special and this Aussie doubly so! This unique Australian Shepherd was born with two noses and recently saved from euthanasia.
Toby was found by an animal rescue group wandering around the streets of Fresno, California. They would have put him to sleep had Todd Ray not stepped in and adopted him.
Since then, Toby hasn’t looked back.
“Everyone that meets Toby loves him,” says Todd. “The sad thing is that, at this time, people will let a two-nosed dog get put down before they will adopt him – only because he looks different.”
The proud owner of the two-nosed dog says the Australian Shepherd is the “the sweetest dog on Earth”.
For Todd, having “different” looking pets is nothing new. The man owns the Venice Beach Freakshow, which is dedicated to the weird and wonderful.
He also holds the Guinness World Record for the largest collection of two-headed animals.
“I’m fascinated by weird animals’ beautiful differences and by the magical lessons that they teach us,” he says.
The two-nosed Australian Shepherd dog has been a huge hit at the attraction.
Although there were initial concerns that Toby’s nose may result in health issues, a vet says the unique dog is in “perfect health”.
