Have you ever seen a dog who resembles the great, BATMAN!?
A Great Dane named Enzo has shot to stardom on social media after his owner posted a picture of the dog on their travel blog. There are several special factors that can set you apart on Instagram, and looking like a celebrity is one of them. The dog greatly resembles everyone’s favourite superhero, Batman, from Gotham and this is the reason for his popularity. Within no time, he has gained over 32K followers, which frankly is an insane number of following when it comes to popularity and fame. Especially when it’s a dog!
The Great Dane breed is 32 inches at the shoulder and they tower over most dogs. When they stand on their hind legs, they are taller than most people. They have tall, pointed ears and massive muscles. This structure has made their resemblance to Batman strikingly familiar. The dog weighs about 150 pounds. According to his owners, Danny and Stephanie, Enzo often takes on the protective nature of the Dark Knight because of his feature and nature. “Enzo’s more brave and courageous. He likes to impose himself, bark very loudly and guard the house,” Lemay told in an interview, adding that it’s the dog’s pointy ears that really give Enzo the Batman look.
It all started out as a travel blog. Enzo’s parents, Danny and Stephanie, were of the view that it is not necessary to stay at home at all times just because you have a giant pet. They made an Instagram account where they uploaded pictures of their travel adventures featuring their Bat-dog, Enzo. Their main purpose was to let people know that giant-sized pets can help you feel more connected to nature. Let’s see more of this story in the pictures below.

As Enzo’s dad Danny shares, sometimes people think that Great Danes are fearful and gentle — that they don’t like being in the cold and that they are scared of everything. But according to Danny and Stephanie, Enzo is not only confident and fearless, but he is also a people person as well. Given his large following, his parents say that people in the neighbourhood stop them for pictures and Enzo never minds being a celebrity. He is friendly towards his family and strangers.
