This Puppy With One Ear Is Instagram’s Golden Unicorn

Every dog has their day, and Rae has certainly captured the spotlight. The internet is flooded with plenty of golden retrievers, but Rae quickly stands out. She has all of the love and affection of any other puppy dog, but it takes one glance to quickly see what makes Rae so special.

Instagram has quickly fallen in love with Rae and her signature unicorn look, but she’s more than just a one-eared puppy.

It only takes one quick look at Rae to see that she’s not like most dogs. Rae is only 12-weeks-old, but she became an overnight sensation thanks to the single ear sitting right on top of her head.

According to Rae’s owner Brianna, Rae was born with two ear like all of her other litter-mates. Unfortunately, her mother accidentally nipped off one of her ears shortly after her birth.

Rae had surgery just two days into her life to repair the tear on her head and face. As the stitches healed, Rae started to get larger and, according to Brianna, ‘her remaining ear started to migrate upwards and she almost looked like she was going to have a facelift.’

While it’s still early in her life, Rae appears to be able to respond to vocal commands even though her ear doesn’t line up with her ear cannel. That’s music to everyone’s ears, as we can’t wait to see what’s in store for this little star as she continues to gain more social media followers and grow into her big personality!
