Life got you down? Get a little faith from the 2-legged dog ‘Faith’
Ever hear that song “Walk Like a Man”?
Well, apparently so did this dog “Faith”, a 2 legged dog.
Faith, a mutt mixed with Chow blood, was born with 2 good hind legs, and 1 abnormal front leg which had to be amputated. He was a deformed puppy that no one wanted, not including his own mother. In, fact right before he was rescued, the mother instinctively knew that Faith wouldn’t make it and was found sitting on Faith, presumably to “abort” the little one who she knew wouldn’t survive in the real world.
Luckily, Faith met a family who had “faith” in the dog.
The doctors told the family that Faith would be only able to drag itself around, eventually boring a hole in his chin or his chest, which would kill Faith. So the family taught the dog to walk upright using peanut butter on spoon as a lure to get Faith to walk upright.
With a couple of months of intense training, Faith was able to not only walk, but hop, like a HUMAN being.
Faith is now a worldwide phenomenon. He was featured in TV shows such as Montel Williams Show, Inside Edition, and Fuji TV in Japan.
In fact, he was even considered to play a role in one of the Harry Potter movies.
Faith is teaching us something very valuable.
That when life’s not going so rosy,… stay strong and keep on believing despite how grim the situation may look.
When there’s a will, there’s a way.
Have hope and never give up.
