One smell of a find: Freakshow owner adopts unwanted dog with two noses
A freakshow owner has found one SMELL of a find – adopting a dog that has two noses.
Adorable pooch Toby did not turn his noses up at the chance to join Todd Ray at Venice Beach Freakshow, California, after he was found roaming the streets and was nearly put down.
Since being adopted, the unique Australian Shepherd has been a huge hit at the attraction.
Todd said: “Everyone that meets Toby loves him – he’s the sweetest dog on Earth.”
Todd currently holds the Guinness World Record for the largest collection of two-headed animals, and is certainly accustomed to weird and wonderful creatures.
Discovered the streets of Fresno, California, the animal rescue group that saved Toby were planning to put the pooch down.
Luckily for cute Toby, Todd was granted permission to adopt the dog, who is now two years old.
Todd was initially worried Toby’s nose may result in health issues, but a vet found the mutt to be in perfect health.
Now living at the freakshow, playful Toby bounds around meeting many visitors that have since become fans.
Todd added: “I’m fascinated by weird animals’ beautiful differences and by the magical lessons that they teach us.
“The uniqueness of their forms show us that normal doesn’t exist.
“The sad thing is that, at this time, people are at a place where they will let a two-nosed dog get put down before they will adopt him – only because he looks different.”
