I verified this on Snopes.com before passing this along since I received it via email. Snopes says it’s a true story – and very heartwarming at that!
This is a little bit of the story – you can read the full email on Snopes and even visit the pup’s official website.
This is a story about a dog who was born on Christmas Eve in 2002. He was born with 3 legs – 2 healthy hind legs and 1 abnormal front leg which needed to be amputated. He of course could not walk when he was born. Even his mother did not want him. He was rejected and scorned.
His first owner also did not think that he could survive. Therefore, he was thinking of putting him to sleep… at this time, his present owner Jude Stringfellow came into his life and wanted to take care of him. She was determined to teach and train this dog to walk by himself. She thought, “all we need is a little faith”. Therefore, she named him ‘Faith’.
His present owner Jude Stringfellow has given up her teaching job and plans to take him around the world to preach, ‘that even without a perfect body, one can have a perfect soul‘.
