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.

There is a story that legendary explorer Colonel Percy Fawcett reported dogs with two noses from the Amazon in 1913. "Nobody believed him, they laughed him out of court."

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