Bo the Labrador keeps being mistaken for a gigantic pug after his NOSE was removed in a life-saving operation

  • Bo, 10, had a tumour and most of his nose removed in a life-saving operation
  • Owner Paddy Morral, 35, was told by vets his Labrador needed the amputation after a quickly developing cancerous growth appeared on the end of his nose.
  • Operation was a success and since the dog’s hair and whiskers have grown back

Most Labradors are easily identified on the streets.

Britain’s most popular dog brand is distinctive due to floppy ears, short hair and long faces.

But 10-year-old Labrador Bo is often mistaken for a giant pug when he’s out with owner Paddy.

Paddy from Keighley in West Yorkshire, told the Sunday Express: ‘Our five other dogs acted a bit strangely around him at first, but they soon got used to his changed appearance.

‘I actually thought he looked like a piranha fish, when there was no fur on his face, and people on the street used to be terrified of him. Now his fur has grown back, they just think he is some other kind of dog breed.’ 

‘I am very proud of Bo for coming through. He’s been through a lot. I wouldn’t be without him.’
