As a result of this genetic mutation, he has a huge black splotch around his left eye. Normally, purebred golden retrievers possess a single golden coat, but this one has a birthmark on the left side of his face. This birthmark adds to his beauty without a doubt. A golden retriever’s coat is generally black from birth. Their golden color is caused by a modifier gene in their bodies.

This modifier gene is present in almost all golden retrievers. In Enzo’s case, a slight mistake in his DNA erased the modifier gene on the left eye area of his face. Pigmented somatic cell mutation is a rare condition. In spite of this, Enzo’s birthmark has made him popular all over the world. He has more than 100k followers on Instagram. Although Enzo has no idea how unique he is, he continues to live as any other golden retriever would.

There is a lot of love for this adorable dog and his interesting birthmark. Meanwhile, Enzo is trying to make friends everywhere he goes. Since golden retrievers are solid-colored, people sometimes mistake him for a mutt.

 Moreover, this doggo is extremely large for his age. To see more pictures of this lovable soul, follow him on Instagram under the username mister.enzoviola.
