Enzo, a Golden Retriever puppy, is just like any other playful and affectionate pup, except for one thing. He has a rare genetic mutation that causes a pigmented somatic cell disorder resulting in a large black mark on the side of his face. His family affectionately refers to it as his “lil freckle.” Fortunately, this condition is not harmful, but it does alter the pattern of his coat. While Golden Retrievers typically have a base black coat that eventually turns golden due to a “modifier gene,” Enzo is missing this gene, causing part of his face to remain black. This unique birthmark makes him stand out from the crowd and has brought him success on Instagram as mister.enzoviola. Enzo proves that our imperfections make us perfect, and we can’t help but fall in love with his adorable face.
