Duo-2 nose dog

Reakcije: 

It is a case of double trouble for Duo the two-nosed dog.

Not only does the Staffordshire bull terrier have two noses, he is also looking for a new home.

Potential new owners are being put off because of the loveable dog’s harelip.

The three-year-old was either lost or abandoned by his previous owners and was handed over to the Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter by police.

Staff at the centre in Benton, Newcastle-upon-Tyne- who named him Duo because of his double nose - are having problems finding a home for the well-trained dog because of his unique appearance.

Michelle Pyle, head of fundraising at the centre, said: “We’ve had a few people come and see him and say he’s a freak.

“Duo is not a freak, he’s just unusual. Not many people can say they’ve got a dog like that.”

Duo’s double-nose is caused by a condition which in humans is called a harelip, but rarely occurs to such an extent in animals.

Ms Pyle said vets had not seen a harelip to such an extent in a dog before.

Myself and my Husband have recently adopted a rescued Staffie/Boxer cross with a hare lip. I would like to say that he is the most loyal and wholly grateful creature and I would appeal to anyone who is planning to adopt, PLEASE do not be put off by this minor and insignificant difference. I can honestly say that regardless of him being mistreated in the past, he is the most loving creature I have ever encountered. He actually cuddles my Husband and I and is never happier than when he is receiving human contact. So please, don't allow asthetics to cloud your judgement when adopting a dog, after all, if it's the looks that concern you, maybe you should think twice before taking another creature into your care. Would you suddenly abandon a pet if it become disfigured after you'd bought it?
