The animal shelter started giving up on Toby two years ago. All that people could see was his nose deformity, and not his bubbly heart. It was going to be a tragic ending for Toby, who would likely be euthanised.But as luck would have it, a man namedTodd Ray heard about Toby and knew at once he had to take him home. Ray told theBBC :

The sad thing is that, at this time, people will let a two-nosed dog get put down before they will adopt him - only because he looks different.

In fact, Todd Ray runs theVenice Beach Freakshow, an attraction which celebrates the weird and wonderful,particularly people and animal with physical 'differences'. Toby has now become a main attraction at the show, with kids and adults alike flocking to meet the adorable pup.Todd thinks that it's Toby's difference which makes him so special, telling BoredPanda:
