Enzo joined his forever family when he was around 2 months old, goofy, cuddly, and loved to meet new people. A rare genetic mutation makes him stand out from the crowd.
Enzo was born with a large black splotch around his eye, which almost completely covers the left side of his face. The beautiful beauty mark is caused by a rare disorder called pigmented somatic cell mutation.
Golden retrievers are born with a base black coat, with a ‘modifier gene’ that turns them golden,” Ella Castro, Enzo’s mom, told The Dodo.
Enzo’s condition is not at all common, making him a very special little pup, and incredibly unique-looking for his breed.
While he may be a rarity, Enzo is completely oblivious to this and has no idea that he’s any different from any other dog. Strangers are always fascinated about Enzo and his little freckle, meanwhile, Enzo just wants to befriend the entire world, no matter who they are or what they look like.
While Enzo may look a little different, he’s still just like any other puppy, and his family will always love him for exactly who he is.
It’s impossible not to fall for this little guy and his adorable freckle. We love you Enzo!
He’s actually very, very big for his age.
Who could possibly resist that adorable face?
