Skin conditions are always hard to cope with especially since they’re so visible. Carter Blanchard, an 8-year-old Arkansas kid born with vitiligo agrees.
But recently, he has discovered newfound confidence and happiness…
…after meeting a dog with the exact same condition.
The dog’s name is Rowdy. He too suffers from vitiligo, a condition that can cause white patches all over the body.(boredpanda.com)
They met each other online and have become real-life buddies since then. People donated generously to help Carter fly to Portland just to meet the dog.
Niki Umbenhower, Rowdy’s owner, felt “goosebumps” thinking about the moment Carter walked through the door.
The power of friendship truly knows no bounds, no shape and no color! (instagram.com/white_eyed_rowdy)
