This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002. He was born with 3 legs – 2 healthy hind legs and 1 abnormal front leg which needed to be amputated. 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. Therefore, he was thinking of ‘putting him to sleep.’ By this time, his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met him and wanted to take care of him.
She is determined to teach and train this dog to walk by himself. Therefore she named him ‘Faith’.
In the beginning, she put Faith on a surf board to let him feel the movements. Later, she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and reward for him to stand up and jump around. Even the other dog at her home helped encourage Faith to walk. Amazingly, only after 6 months, like a miracle, Faith learned to balance on his 2 hind legs and jump to move forward. After further training in the snow, he now can walk like a human being.
Faith loves to walk around now. No matter where he goes, he attracts people. He is now becoming famous on the international scene. He has appeared on various newspapers and TV shows.
There is even one 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. Perhaps one will feel better if one changes the point of view from another direction.
I hope this message will bring fresh new ways of thinking to everyone and that everyone can appreciate and be thankful for each beautiful day that follows.
Faith is the continual demonstration of the Strength of Life.
