Faith is helping wounded soldiers!

Post by jeanebellini on Mon Aug 23, 2010 1:20 pm

Bet you've seen Faith somewhere in the last two years...she was on Orpah a couple times and on the news. She's a two legged pooch that walks like a human. (she's not the only two legged dog...i think Sandra Bullock has one or two.)
there was a book written about her, but now she's helping soldiers;)
here's a link to a story about her new 'job'Smile

I remember reading about her! She had two littermates born the same way. So glad they found a good job for her, with her outgoing loving personality it's a perfect fit for her. And I think the soldiers will love her too.

kind of like the chihuahuas at NSAL a while back. i don't think most people would have ever seen a dog that walked standing up cuz it only had two legs if this pooch hadn't come along. i wonder how many dogs are like this in the world. (reminds me of the people who used to be born with only 'flipper'like arms (or legs) because their mothers were taking certain drugs back in the 50s and 60s.

If I hadn't seen the video of Faith and saw her on tv I'd have found it hard to believe myself. It's amazing how furkids adapt to their handicaps and never think of themselves as having a handicap.

i don't know how she started walking that way...probably just decided to try it herself. when humans try to 'help' they put dogs with only two legs or with only two working legs in carts. the carts are fine and helpful but i wonder how many pooches would walk on their own on their hind legs if they were given the choice and the training?

I think Faith just got up and started walking like the humans she saw all around her.
