This news is about a dog. He has two noses. His name is Toby. People find him in the streets of Fresno, California, USA.

People take the dog to a shelter. The shelter tries to find Toby a new home. However, it is not easy. People do not want a two-nosed dog. Toby is in danger. If nobody takes him, the shelter has to put him down.

Toby is lucky. A man adopts him. The man is a music producer. He also has many special animals. He has many two-headed animals. He also has a five-legged dog, and a two-legged dog.

Difficult words: shelter (a safe place for animals), put down (to kill), adopt (to take to your home).
