This is Rowdy, a 13-year-old black lab. He recently began loosing pigmentation in the fur around his eyes, giving him the appearance of wearing a mask.

His superhero look has made him a local celebrity in Oregon. Rowdy’s humans Niki and Tim Umbenhower told KPTV, “Everybody loves to stop us and wonder what we did to him or if we painted it on there.”

The condition responsible is Vitiligo, where it turns patches of hair or skin white. It only alters the appearance of Rowdy and does not affect his health.
