Faith was born in 2002 with 2 legs.
He 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.
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 in 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 the 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'.
