Todd Ray, who runs the Venice Beach Freakshow, recently posted a video of a unique animal he managed to rescue (video below).
Toby the two-nosed dog was found wandering the streets of Fresno, California, and was set to be put down.
But Todd and his wife stepped in, offering to adopt him.
Todd described Toby as “the sweetest dog on earth” who had “super sniffing abilities.” He added that the Australian shepherd “can find anything with his nose,” the International Business Times reported.
Ray is no stranger to unusual animals. He holds the Guinness World Record for having the largest collection of two-headed creatures.
He also owns a two-legged Chihuahua named Pinky and a five-legged Miniature Pinscher called Rocky. Both dogs were adopted in similar situations.
“For me, they are incredible!” Ray added. “I’m fascinated by unique 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.”
Todd posted a video of Toby on YouTube, and it has gone viral.
“He loves EVERYBODY,” Ray wrote, according to Fox News. “Toby loves hugs and playing catch. He was born with two noses and it doesn’t bother him at all. As a matter of fact, it appears to come in handy when he is searching for his old chewed up ball.”
There were initial concerns that Toby’s two noses could result in health issues, but a vet has given him the all-clear and says his health is perfect, BBC reported.
