An Inspiring Story of What A Llittle Faith Can Accomplish
We all have trials we have to work with or through and some of us have dogs that have had to do the same. And while life never plays fair it doesn’t mean we cannot play despite our individual challenges. There are so many people and dogs that have overcome adversity and are now on the dog agility field in one way or another not letting life take away their joy and passion. And while this special dog will never be on a dog agility field, her story is a true testimony of what is possible with a lot of love and a Little Faith.
This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002. He was born with 2 legs – He 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, 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 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 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’.
In life there are always undesirable things, in order to to become a overcomer 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 day as a gift to be cherished. Faith makes it self known with the continual demonstration of Gods sufficient grace and sustaining power to become overcomers through any Circumstance of life.
