Dog with 'two noses' and no home


A dog that appears to have two noses because of a condition similar to a harelip in humans is looking for a new home. Duo, a three-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier, was handed in to a dog and cat shelter in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Staff at the centre are having problems finding a home for the well-trained dog because people who have seen him rejected him as a “freak”

Awww, he is too cute! I would take him in a second if I could. :(

That is so sad that people will not accept him. He looks very happy.

I have to admit, it creeps me out. Makes my stomach turn.

Hopefully there's someone out there who, unlike me, can get past his nose and adopt him for his personality.

I didn't even notice his nose when I first looked at the picture because I thought he was so cute . . . :|

I guess if it works o.k. and it doesn't bother him, no biggie---he's still a cutie!

Aww....I like the special dogs. Doesn't bother me a bit!

You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

I'm a sucker for the "special" ones too - especially amputees.

Someone on PBF has an APBT with a nose like that, I can't remember who, but I remember seeing the picture.

I hope this lil guy gets a great forever home. He looks like a happy dog
