An 8-year-old boy, Carter Blanchard of Searcy, Arkansas, who has the skin condition vitiligo isn’t feeling so alone since meeting a dog halfway across the country with the same skin disorder.     Skin Disorder

He was at a big school with a lot of kids, and his face was transforming very quickly,” his mother, Stephanie Adcock, told the network. “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.”

Life was tough for Carter. But help came in the form of Rowdy. A 13-year-old purebred black Labrador retriever in Oregon who was diagnosed with vitiligo the same year as Carter.

When Adcock first found pictures of Rowdy on Facebook, she quickly shared them with her son.

Carter and his mom reached out to Rowdy’s owner, Niki Umbenhower of Canby, Ore., and built a long-distance friendship.

Carter hugged and petted Rowdy for two hours that first meeting, “and they’ve been together ever since.”
