Enzo the Golden Retriever has the most unique facial features in the world

Enzo Viola lives in Austin, Texas with his paw-rents. And though Goldens are one of the most popular breeds in the world, there’s something about Enzo that makes him one of a kind.

Indeed, Enzo has a large patch of black fur on the left side of his face. His mum calls it a ‘freckle’.

Rare and extraordinary

This black patch is actually caused by a somatic mutation in the cells. Despite Enzo’s parents being completely cream-coloured, Enzo was born like this! But it doesn’t cause him any discomfort, it just makes him extra special.

Other than that, Enzo is a pretty normal pooch. He loves to nap on the couch, steal socks, kiss his humans and take long walks in the great outdoors.

Unsurprisingly, Enzo has become quite a star around the world due to his unique features. So far, he has 180K followers on Instagram, and that number is constantly growing! Being so beautiful, both inside and out, we must say we’re not surprised.

In fact, this four-year old has totally stolen our hearts too! Keep glowing Enzo, you’re absolutely gorgeous
