Faith A Two Legged Dog With Lots of Love

This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002.
He was born with 2 legs - He of course could not walk when he was born.
Even his mother did not want him.

His first owner also did not think that he could survive and he was thinking of 'putting him to sleep'. But then, his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met him and wanted to take care of him. She became determined to teach and train this little dog to walk by himself..
She named him 'Faith'.

In the beginning, she put Faith on a surfboard to let him feel the movement. Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and reward for him for standing up and jumping around. Even the other dog at home encouraged him to walk. TREATS can teach a dog anything!

Amazingly, only after 6 months, like a miracle, Faith learned to balance on his hind legs and to jump to move forward. After further training in the snow, he could now walk like a human being.

Faith loves to walk around now.
No matter where he goes, he attracts people to him.
He 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 him.
He was even considered to appear in one of Harry Potter movies.

His present owner Jude Stringfellew has given up her teaching post and plans to take him 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.
When I Googled TWO LEG DOG - Actually A LOT of dogs came up! Some even had wheels!

Faith lives in Inidana. So stop by and Give Faith some love!

Good Morning Derek,
I think this is a great story and I love the image of Faith using wheels. I would very much like to use that image images in an online lecture course that I am creating, would that be ok with you? (v. happy to attribute to your website if you wish?)
Many thanks,
