14-year-old Rowdy from Canby, Oregon, has vitiligo, a disorder that causes the loss of skin pigment. The condition began within the last couple of years.
His owners, Niki and Tim Umbenhower, are regularly stopped by strangers who think they have painted his eyes white.
Rowdy is now helping teach children that being different is beautiful, as a representative of the American Vitiligo Research Foundation.
Don't the owners now have to be very careful about exposing their doggie to sunlight?
The colour has changed but the fur is still there so it's not realy a problem health-wise, use normal precautions.
