The one-eared golden retriever has been dubbed a unicorn pup because her ear looks like a unicorn horn when it sticks up at the top of her head.

Rae, which is ear spelt backwards, was born with both ears but a birth accident left her with just one ear. The ear soon migrated to the top of her head, CNN reports.

After emergency surgery, which required extensive care during recovery, Rea’s remaining ear is fully functional and painless.

The 12-week-old pup’s unicorn feature has sparked huge interest on her Instagram page, which is run by her owner Brianna Vorhees.


“I really enjoy that she’s bringing so much joy to people around the world in this time of such fear,” Brianna said speaking to E! News.

Talking about her unusual looking dog, Brianna described Rae’s personality as, “confident, playful, very quirky and curious – just like any other regular puppy”.

Brianna is also glad that her dog has received such an overwhelming response from netizens and now boasts more than 160 000 followers on Instagram.

“I'm glad she’s a positive distraction and that people have enjoyed watching her and adoring her as much as everyone else that knows her personally already does.”

Check out some of Rae’s most adorable captured moments below.
