We’ve seen so many people and animals with vitiligo, a condition in which the skin loses its pigment cells (melanocytes).
People often feel self-conscious about medical conditions, but there’s a dog with vitiligo will remind us that all of us are beautiful regardless of our appearance.
Meet Blaze, a 10-year-old Labrador Retriever who lives in Finland with his dad, Santeri Frilander. He was born with an all-black coat, but about a year ago, vitiligo patches started showing all over his body.
“The white color began spreading from a small spot on his ear,” Frilander shared. “Interestingly, all of his brothers and sisters still remain single-colored.”
Turns out, Blaze has vitiligo. It’s more common for humans, but dogs can get it as well. However, it doesn’t stop him from enjoying his everyday life. Though his appearance changed, he is completely healthy and full of energy as vitiligo only affects the appearance and nothing else.
“He’s always ready to join you wherever you go,” mentioned his dad. “He even loves to travel iпѕidе a car.”
Recently, Blaze went viral when his dad shared his photos on social media. People fall in love with him and can’t stop admiring his mesmerizing appearance.
“He likes to make people happy and put a smile on their faces,” Santeri added. “He is 10 years оld now and has received a few nicknames because of his age, like ‘The Old Man’ and ‘The Funny Оld Man.’”
Here are the best pics of Blaze that we gathered from his Instagram page. Scroll down below and check out!
