Introduction of Dogs With Two Heads
When you think about famous dogs, all the usual suspects come to mind: Lassie, Rin Tin Tin, and maybe even Cujo. But do you know about the Dogs With Two Heads that have made their mark on history? In fact, there are many two-headed dogs out there that are as famous as any single dog could hope to be. Here are some of our favorites:
Neeki is a two-headed dog. She was born in the United States and has two heads, but one body. Neeki was a boxer/pit bull mix.
Chuppy and Chubbs
Chuppy and Chubbs, born in Russia in 2009, were two dogs with a unique genetic mutation. They were owned by a woman who found them abandoned and took them home to raise. The owner reportedly raised the dogs until they were old enough to be adopted out, but she never did so because she loved them so much. Unfortunately, Chuppy and Chubbs’ story will come to an end soon: they have been diagnosed with brain tumors and are scheduled to be euthanized this week (as of February 2019).
Pippen is a two-headed dog who was born in South Carolina on May 6, 2010. He belongs to the Pit Bull Terrier breed and was originally named Pippen after Michael Jordan’s childhood nickname. As you can see, he has a very large head and it’s quite easy to understand how his owners got confused when they saw him for the first time as puppies!
Since then, Pippen has become internationally known as having one of the most famous two-headed dogs in history! He even appeared on National Geographic Channel’s show “Mutant World,” which features animals with unusual physical traits that are not otherwise seen among their species. We don’t blame them for being curious about this rare occurrence—it looks like something out of science fiction!
Survivor, a labrador retriever with two heads, was born on May 4, 2009. The dog lives in the United States with his owner.
The Original Elwood
- The Elwood is a rare dog breed believed to have originated in England. The name comes from the movie “Harold and Maude,” where a man named Elwood P. Dowd befriended an aging woman named Ruth Gordon by telling her he was her guardian angel.
- The Elwood has two heads that are joined at the neck and share one body with four legs, two tails and one anus. There may be as many as eight paws on each side of its body depending on how many are still attached after birth. Each head has its own pair of eyes, ears and nose; however, only one mouth is functional at any given time so that no food can ever be shared between them (which would lead to fighting).
- The breed is known for being very friendly with strangers but not so much with other dogs or cats—it prefers human companionship over all else!
Abby and Brittany Hensel
You may have heard of the Hensel twins, Abby and Brittany. In case you haven’t, they are conjoined twins. That means they were born sharing a body together. They have two heads, but they only have one body with two arms and two legs.
Abby and Brittany are fraternal twins—they don’t share the same egg sac or placenta during gestation like identical twins do. They also have different personalities: Abby is more dominant than Brittany, who is more introverted (source). Their hair colors differ as well; Abby has blonde hair and Brittany’s is brown (source). Finally their eyes are different colors too: blue for Abby and green for her sister (source).
Bijou and HoneyBun
Bijou and HoneyBun are two mixed breed dogs that share a unique appearance. They were born in the same litter to a mother named Buttercup, who is a black and white Dalmation mix.
Both Bijou and HoneyBun have two heads, but they have different coloring from one another—one is black or chocolate, while the other is white or cream. Their unique look has made them internet celebrities with over 50 million views on Instagram and Facebook combined!
PattyCake and Fluffy
- PattyCake and Fluffy are two-headed dogs. They were born in the United States in 2001, and they’re a type of Chihuahua.
- PattyCake and Fluffy have their own Facebook page!
- The dogs’ owners, Tammy Wynette and her husband, have said that separate heads allow them to eat separately and sleep independently.
Remus and Romulus
Romulus and Remus, the legendary twin brothers who were raised by a she-wolf and founded Rome, are often considered to be the fathers of modern Italy.
- Romulus was the first king of Rome. He oversaw its construction from 753 B.C.E., after defeating his brother in a fight over who would rule it first (Remus).
- Both were sons of Mars, the god of war, and Rhea Silvia (a Vestal Virgin). When their father saw them together as infants he said “One day you will be great men!” But when he learned about their birth order dispute he said “No! They will kill each other!”
