Unicorns have become a complete obsession in modern culture. The mystical creatures are everywhere - in stories, t-shirts, homeware, and stationary, amongst other things. While we all know deep down they aren't real, they often symbolize magic, rainbows, strength and of course, they're pretty captivating to look at, too.

But sometimes, little discoveries are made that make us question whether aspects of the unicorn species do actually exist in our world.  And in the instance of one little puppy, this is certainly the case.

An unusual pup has been discovered by a team of rescuers in Missouri, donning what bears resemblance to a unicorn's horn. Keep scrolling to see the snaps of this rather unconventional little unicorn...

The mythical horse-like creature has become an obsession in society.
