This is Rowdy with his mom, Niki Umbenhower. They live in Oregon. Umbenhower told BuzzFeed News that her old doggo has vitiligo.
And so does 8-year-old Carter Blanchard, who lives in Arkansas. Vitiligo is a benign condition which causes loss of skin pigment.
Since, she said, her son has become proud of the spots that once made him anxious. “Rowdy made him do a 180 with his confidence,” Adcock said.
“Right around the time we discovered Rowdy, [Carter] looked at me one night and said your skin's boring because you don’t have vitiligo,” she recalled.
I mean, look at these groovy patches.
