The most popular question asks if he can wag his forehead tail. According to his caretakers, his extra tail on his forehead is idle and it doesn’t wag at all. Mac’s Mission also explained that the 10-week-old puppy has an unusual birth defect which is the cause of the extra tail. People were worried whether this defect could adversely affect his health.
