Enzo is your typical Golden Retriever, but he has something extra that makes him unbearably cute and adorable.He met his forever family when he was two years old and has been living his dream ever since.And what is it about him that makes him stand out from the crowd?He has a distinctive birthmark that has become his distinguishing feature!
He has a very rare medical condition, a rare genetic mutation that causes a large black splotch around his eye area.
He is a purebred Golden Retriever, which usually has a single bright golden coat.
However, due to his condition, he has a black birthmark on the left side of his face.
And the extra coloration enhances his beauty.
“Golden retrievers are born with a base black coat and a’modifier gene’ that turns them golden,” Ella Castro, Enzo’s mother, explained.
“This modifier is present in almost every dog.”Enzo has a mistake in his DNA that has erased it from that one part of his face.”She went on.
7. This very rare condition is called pigmented somatic cell mutation.
