His Skin is Different, But He’s Not Alone. His Dog Is Different, Too
Carter is a young boy with vitiligo—a rare skin condition that causes the skin to lose melanin, resulting in white patches on the face and body. He thought he was alone, and often felt singled out for looking different from other kids at school. But then he learned about Rowdy, a dog with the same condition who lived 2,000 miles away. Carter and his mother flew to Rowdy’s home, and now this little boy—thanks to a dog just like him—doesn’t mind that he looks a little different from everyone else!
