Post Dog with two noses?

When I saw this I was sure that somebody had been , either whoever wrote it or me as I was reading it!

I don't know what possible comment I can make on this so see for yourself...

He spotted a rare breed of Double-Nosed Andean tiger hound, which has two noses, on a recent trip to Bolivia.

I looked at some more pictures on the internet, and it didn't so much look like the dogs had to distinct nose, but more like the nostrals were seperated by a greater distance and had hair between them. No information was given as far as skull structure. Really it looks like a cleft pallat.

Montanagal, that was EXACTLY what I thought-but the article said that a vet had looked at it and said it wasn't.
