When most people think about genetic mutations, they don’t necessarily get the best mental image. For one dog on Instagram, however, a genetic mutation has resulted in something adorable. In fact, people are falling in love with this dog’s lovely black patch.
Enzo Viola is the English cream golden retriever that had an unusual black patch on his face when he was born. It’s not painful and does not hurt the dog in any way. Now that he is 3 years old, this adorable dog from Texas is as energetic as you would expect from the breed.
According to his Instagram page, Enzo is a “Pro napper, sock thiever, long-walk taker, kiss giver, fuzzy snuggler.” The account is full of pictures of him taking some naps and doing anything to make you smile.
The Castro family instantly fell in love with this dog when they saw him. According to the Daily Star, Clarissa Castro, a 15-year-old member of the family, says he was the “sweetest and most playful puppy.”

“We spend a lot of time playing fetch with him in the back yard or playing with one of his toys inside.
There’s so much to enjoy spending time with him, one of my favourite things is that he often falls asleep while tugging on a toy, he’ll just slowly lay down and rest with the toy in his mouth,” she said.
She also talked about how much Enzo enjoys having a routine.
He wakes up at the same time every morning, goes on walks, and eats breakfast on a strict schedule. He doesn’t get upset if they do change the schedule but he prefers it to stay the same.
Enzo has more than 190,000 followers on Instagram. You might want to follow him as well.
