An Amazing Dog.

At first it may look like the dog is imitating a human by standing up on it's hind legs and walking.

But if you look closer it is actually handicapped, mising its two front legs. Now this proof that with " Will Power", you can achieve almost anything.






Faith喜歡到處跑動,不論去到哪里都會吸引到所有人的目光。事實上,Faith國際上已開始被廣為人知。曾經上過很多各地新聞和有名的電視節目,也有一本關於牠故事的書"With a little Faith"被出版,甚至曾被考慮過在哈里波特"火焰杯的考驗"電影中客串。

現在此刻Faith的主人Jude Stringfellow已放棄了教師的職位,並計劃要帶Faith去作世界性的探訪,傳揚"沒有完美的身體,也會有完美的靈魂"的信息。

Faith is an incredible dog. She was born just before Christmas in 2002, and we were lucky enough to have her in our family just 3 short weeks later. She was born to a mother dog, believed to be nearly full blooded Chinese Chow Chow, along with several other siblings. Faith wasn't the only puppy born with deformities, but because "Princess", her mother, was not our dog, we are not sure of the exact number of puppies she gave birth to. It is certain, however, that Faith was the only puppy with deformities to live.
Faith was rescued by my son Reuben on January 21, 2003, when he and his friend Johnny, the owner of Princess, jumped over the fence of the flea market area that Princess was raised to guard. Princess isn't exactly the mothering kind. She was literally terminating Faith's life because she knew instinctively that Faith was unable to battle the other puppies for a place to feed. Faith was weak, small, runtish, and mostly she was nearly dead. Reuben grabbed Faith out from under Princess and smuggled her under his jersey. He wore #63 for the Putnam City Pirates football team.
When Reuben brought Faith to us she had 3 actual legs, but the left front leg was badly deformed, placed backward, upside down, and it had more toes on it than normal dog legs. The leg was removed when she was 7 months old when it began to atrophy. People ask me if it was easy to teach Faith to walk upright...the answer is NO! It was not easy, and it was not natural. It was SUPER natural, and therefore, we have to give all of the credit to Jesus. Of course, it took a little....Faith as well.
