Boy With A Rare Skin Disorder Hates His Looks, Until He Meets His Dog Twin
Carter Blanchard is an 8-year-old boy with a skin condition known as vitiligo. He hated the way he looked until he met a special friend with the same condition as his.
“His face was transforming very quickly,” said his mom Stephanie Adcock. “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.”
Their prayers were answered in the form of a 13-year-old purebred black Lab named Rowdy.
The doggie was diagnosed with vitiligo the same year as Carter. His white patches made him Internet famous, and that’s how Carter’s mother discovered him.
Carter was so excited to see a dog that was famous for his vitiligo. Then, the boy and the dog met, and it was magical.
The mother says that since meeting Rowdy and developing an unexpected friendship, Carter has been way more confident and has learned to embrace his uniqueness.
