Two-nosed dog – level 3
Meet Toby, the two-nosed dog. After being found roaming the streets of Fresno, California, he was picked up by a nearby shelter who tried to find him a home. It proved a near impossible task and Toby was at risk of being put down, until Todd Ray came to his rescue.
The successful music producer who has worked with artists like Mick Jagger, the Beastie Boys, and Cypress Hill, saw the double-nosed dog on an advert and with the habit of adopting unique pets, Toby fit right in.
Todd holds a world record for owning the largest number of two-headed living animals and the pooch joins Rocky, the five-legged Miniature Pinscher, and Pinky, the two-legged Chihuahua.
Toby can play and fetch like any other dog, but according to Todd, he has "super-sniffing abilities" and can find anything no matter how well it's hidden. And it may be the case that this owner knows best, as Mr Ray says Toby is the sweetest dog on earth.
Difficult words: roam (to walk), shelter (a safe place for dogs), prove (to show to be), put down (to kill), pooch (a dog).
