Faith Can Achieve Anything

I saw this and had to share it because, not only is it an amazing achievement for a dog, it’s an uplifting story as well. This dog was born in 2002 with two healthy hind legs, but only one abnormal front leg that eventually had to be amputated. Her own mother didn’t want her, and her first owner thought about putting her to sleep because they thought she had no chance of survival. Her present owner, Jude Stringfellow, however, had more faith than that, which is why she named her “Faith.”

For six months, she trained her and rewarded her with peanut butter whenever she would stand up and jump around. Over time, Faith learned to balance on her two hind legs, and now she can walk like a human. She has received lots of recognition, including a book called “With a Little Faith.” And she was even considered to be in one of the Harry Potter movies. This just goes to show that you should never give up, even if something isn’t working the way it’s “supposed” to. There’s always another answer; you just have to find it.
