Toby, a two-nosed dog in Fresno, California, was about to be put down.
Until Todd Ray, music producer and founder of The Venice Beach Freakshow, decided to adopt the unique Australian Shepherd.
According to Sky News, Ray described Toby as “the sweetest dog on Earth” with “super-sniffing abilities.”
Toby now lives with Ray and his collection of unusual animals. He holds a world record for having the most two-headed living animals.
Ray’s animals and other human wonders are shown on the unscripted Netflix series Freakshow.
“I’m fascinated by weird animals’ beautiful differences and by the magical lessons that they teach us,” he told the BBC . “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.”
