Duo-2 nose dog
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.
