This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002. She was born with 2 legs.
She of course could not walk when she was born. Even her mother did not want her.
Her first owner also did not think that she could survive and he was thinking of 'putting her 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 herself. 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 the Harry Potter movies.
Jude Stringfellow has now given up her teaching post and plans to take her dog around the world to preach that 'even without a perfect body, one can have a perfect soul'.
In life there are always undesirable things, so in order to feel better you just need to look at life from another direction.
I hope this message will bring fresh new ways of thinking to everyone and that everyone will appreciate and be thankful for each beautiful day.
Faith is the continual demonstration of the strength and wonder of life.
