A golden retriever puppy from Grand Rapids, Michigan has become a social media star due to a rare disfigurement. The puppy is being called a “unicorn” because she only has one ear.
The ear is located on top of the dog’s head due to an emergency surgery that was performed shortly after birth. The puppy was adopted by a receptionist at the veterinarian’s office where she was treated. Owner Brianna Vorhees named her “Rae,” which is a backwards spelling of “ear.”
Brianna says, “She can hear and plays in day care here at work almost every day. She has best friends and is the most confident puppy ever. She’s a normal puppy, just with one ear.”
Rae has over 200,000 followers on her Instagram Page. To follow her, and see more pictures – https://www.instagram.com/goldenunicornrae/
