FAITH – The Incredible Two-Legged Dog!
FAITH is an incredible two-legged dog that walks upright like a human! He was born on Christmas Eve in 2002. He was born with 2 legs and even his mother tried to get rid of him.
His first owner also was not positive about his survive and he was going to listen to the vets advice to euthanize him.
Here’s FAITH’s story according to Wikipedia:
“Faith, a bipedal female dog, was born in December 2002 in the United States with three legs; two fully developed hind legs and a deformed front leg, which was amputated when she was seven months old after it began to atrophy. Her owner, Jude Stringfellow, adopted Faith when the mother dog was found trying to smother the deformed puppy—her son rescued the puppy and brought her home. Many people, including veterinarians, advised that Faith be euthanized. Instead, using a spoon with peanut butter as an incentive, Jude taught Faith to hop but Faith decided on her own to walk; the family’s corgi would bark at Faith from another room, or nip her heels to urge her to walk.“
Faith, the biped dog from Oklahoma City, surprised many travelers Wednesday morning when she arrived at Lambert- St. Louis International Airport. Faith will be making appearances this week in the St. Louis area.
