Our wonderful story is about Blaze who is so sweet. The wonderful dog comes from Finland. The dog just like other dogs adores having a walk and spending time in nature.
However what is unique about this dog is that it does not look like other dogs. Unfortunately, the dog’s skin color has changed several times when he was diagnosed with vitiligo.
Vitiligo is a condition most commonly associated with humans, where the skin loses its pigmentation. However, it can also present itself in some dogs – causing them to lose the coloring in their coats. For most of his life, Blaze looked like any other black Lab. However, about a year ago, his owner, Santeri, noted that his pup had developed a small white patch on his ear. He didn’t think anything of it, but then the patch began to grow and was soon spreading across his body. As a result, Blaze’s head and shoulders are now whiter than they are black.
What was the most interesting is that when the dog turned 9 all of a sudden white spots started to appear as over his body. While vitiligo may impact his fur’s pigmentation, there is nothing to worry about, as it doesn’t affect his overall health – he’s still a happy, healthy older dog.
However, his new look has meant an increase in nicknames for the pooch.
Fortunately, that does not stop from enjoying life. He is still healthy full of life and free-spirited.
As his owner says “Blaze is a very energetic and sociable dog. He loves going for a walks and is so friendly.”
Later the owner of this lovely dog created an account on social media where he constantly shares stories about his dog. The picture immediately attracted the attention of users.
The photo got more than 32 thousand likes in a short time. And people do not cease to admire the bewitching appearance of the dog.
