Dog breed with two noses
Legend has it that at the time of the Conquistadors there was a Spanish breed of hunting dog named "Pachon Navarro". There is a good chance that some of these dogs accompanied the Spanish to south America.

Meet Bella and her son Xingu - two double nosed dogs from Bolivia which have even attracted military interest.
