This Boy With A Skin Disorder Met A Dog That Looks Like Him

By Kayleigh Roberts

Meet Rowdy. He's a dog with vitiligo, a skin condition that caused the white spots around his eyes. He's also a literal life-changer.

Rowdy meets with kids who have the same skin condition as he does, and it can be a life-changing experience for the kids (and probably for Rowdy, too, of course).

Recently, he met with an eight-year-old boy named Carter Blanchard and the experience was incredible for everyone involved. Carter was struggling to come to terms with his condition, his mother explained to ABC News.

"His face was transforming very quickly," Stephanie Adcock said. "The first thing he'd tell me when he got in the car is that he hated his face and hated the way he looked."

Adcock said that finding Rowdy online was a game-changer. She arranged for him and Carter to meet and they became fast friends.

"When we walked in, I didn't feel like we were walking in for the very first time. They were family already," she said.
