This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002. She was born with 2 legs – She of course could not walk when he was born. Even her mother did not want him.
Her first owner also did not think that she could survive and he was thinking of ‘putting him to sleep’. But then, her present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met her and wanted to take care of her. She became determined to teach and train this little dog to walk by himself.. She named her ‘Faith’.
In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfboard to let her feel the movement. Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and reward for her for standing up and jumping around. Even the other dog at home encouraged her to walk. Amazingly, only after 6 months, like a miracle, Faith learned to balance on her hind legs and to jump to move forward. After further training in the snow, she could now walk like a human being.
Faith loves to walk around now. No matter where she goes, she attracts people to her. She is fast becoming famous on the international scene and has appeared on various newspapers and TV shows. There is now a book entitled ‘With a Little Faith’ being published about her. She was even considered to appear in one of Harry Potter movies.
Her present owner Jude Stringfellew has given up her teaching post and plans to take her around the world to preach that even without a perfect body, one can have a perfect soul’.
