An odd-looking puppy some dubbed as “Cyclops Puppy”, was born in Tangalan, Aklan in The Philippines. The puppy had just one eye located right in the middle of its head.
According to Boracay Island News Network, the newborn male puppy was a mix of Aspin-Japanese Spitz breed, and one of the six puppies that were born in the province on February 6, 2021.
Media outlets reported that Amie de Martin, the owner of the dog, revealed that the one-eyed puppy did not survive due to its condition. However, “its owner decided to preserve the puppy’s body as a remembrance to their family,” reported Inquirer.
It was said that dog was born with a rare congenital condition called “cyclopia,” which as as defined by Merriam-Webster, is “a developmental anomaly characterized by the presence of a single median eye.”
