A Dog Story | A Success Story | Faith | Judy Stringfellow

I recently received an email from Andrew Perri http://myspace.com/andrewperri with the following story:

This is really a  remarkable little dog and a fascinating story!

This dog was born on Christmas Eve, 2002. He was born with two legs and 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, wanted

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 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.

Jude Stringfellow 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.

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.

A small  request:

All you are asked to do is keep this story circulating.

I am glad to be able to keep the story circulating.
To see a similar story about an amazing man who was
born without limbs please do a search on “Nick” right
on this blog.
I guess human beings are not that different from animals.
Everything is interconnected; everything is “That”.
