If there’s one thing to cheer people up in the middle of a pandemic, it’s cute animals.
Rae, the one-eared golden retriever who has been dubbed the internets favourite ‘unicorn’ pup has taken over social media.
Golden retriever puppies are one of the purest things in the animal world, just like little rays of sunshine.
One particular golden retriever puppy has caught the internets attention as she’s probably the most unique puppy we’ve ever seen.
You see Rae isn’t your typical pup, she was born with only her right ear, as she grew it migrated to the top of her head. Hence, Rae the unicorn.
She has 230k+ followers on instagram an a tiktok video gone viral!
Its hard not to fall for this beauty at first sight, her features are a constant reminder of how special she is!
Rae’s owner, Brianna Vorhees, has been taking care of the 12-week-old puppy.
“I officially adopted her when she was relinquished by her breeder due to her fragile state and unknown future of survival, but I wanted a shot to give her a chance at life.”
“Rae came into my care when she was relinquished from her owners due to her needing around the clock care and a lot of follow up from her injuries.”
Vorhees works as a receptionist at the veterinary hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where Rae was brought after she was injured at birth.
After unfortunately losing her 4-year-old golden retriever in 2019 to lymphoma, Vorhees was on the lookout for another golden retriever to take care of.
After her injury, Rae was brought to the hospital by her breeders for emergency surgery. The hospital staff didn’t know if she would live past 48 hours.
“I really enjoy that she is bringing so much joy to people around the world in this time of such fear.”
“I’m glad she is a positive distraction and that people have enjoyed watching her and adoring her as much as everyone else that knows her personally already does.”
