This is Rowdy the black lab. Rowdy has a skin condition called vitiligo, which causes some of his skin to lose its pigmentation. (Hence the adorable white spots around his eyes.)

The interesting thing about vitiligo is that humans can suffer from it, too. It can cause people who have it, especially young kids, to feel self-conscious or even depressed. Rowdy wants to help those kids out.

Thanks to a recent crowdfunding campaign, Rowdy, who lives with his owner in Oregon, was able to meet an 8-year-old boy by the name of Carter, who is from Arkansas and also has vitiligo. The two became instant friends.
