Blaze Is A Pure Black Labrador Retriever, But He’s A Little Different From The Others
Blaze is a 10-year-old doggo that lives with his owners in Finland. He spent most of his days living a fairly ordinary life, but recently something about him changed drastically. White spots gradually began to appear on his black coat. Now, almost a year later, Blaze is the internet’s first multi-colored labrador retriever.
Blaze is a healthy and energetic pooch that loves to run around and explore the great outdoors. He always looked like any other lab, up until he turned 9 last year. Santeri, Blaze’s owner first noticed that a white spot appeared on his dog’s ear, but thought nothing of it. Over the next few months, more and more white patches began to appear on the pooch, so Santeri took him to the vet. It turns out that Blaze has Vitiligo, a condition that is mostly associated with humans, but apparently, can also affect dogs. The condition causes the skin or fur to lose pigmentation over time, without having any other affect the overall health.
Recently the man shared a picture of the doggo on a Facebook group, which caught people’s attention and quickly went viral. The image produced over 32K reactions and people couldn’t get enough of the unique-looking pooch.
