The viral post has a caption that reads: “When you (unknowingly) get a labrador with dwarfism.” Another goes: “Enzo benzo best boy ever. Small legs dont stop the king.”

According to Hill’s Pet Nutrition, there are different types of dwarfism that can affect a dog’s normal growth, size, quality of life, and lifespan. However, the most-common version of dwarfism in canines is achondroplasia, a condition also observed in humans.

“Achondroplasia in humans is caused by the genes that encode for growth factor receptors in a cell type known as a fibroblast,” the pet website reads. “Although we don’t know the exact genetic location in dogs, a similar inherited mutation results in the disproportionately short limbs we observe in certain dog breeds, such as dachshunds and corgis.”

Dogs with achondroplasia tend to have a larger-than-normal head; undershot jaw; shorter nose; crooked teeth; enlarged joints; corkscrew tails; and bowed limbs.

Some dogs with dwarfism can also have more-severe health issues associated with the disease. These include spina bifida, spinal deviations, hemivertebrae, brachycephalic syndrome, angular/rotational limb deformities and intervertebral disc disease, among others.

The TikTok video quickly attracted animal lovers from all over the platform, receiving more than 559,700 views and 73,500 views so far.

One user, Em Woodward, commented: “So adorable, he has the same face as mine. So frigging cuteee.”

Another TikTok user, day irl tism creature, commented: “there was a lab w dwarfism who was adopted by a basset hound rescuer bc it wasnt accepted by the other labs, but the short bassets loved him!!!”

Major Savage posted: “Join us, brother, we, Dwarves, will rule the world together.”

Midge added: “we have a lab x dachshund and he looks identical! are you sure it’s dwarfism and he’s not just crossed w dachshund or something?”
