Faith – The Two Legged Dog

Faith, a bipedal female dog, was born in December 2002 with only three legs; two fully-developed hind legs and a deformed front leg, which was amputated when she was 7 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.

    Thanks for your helpful article. One other problem is that mesothelioma cancer is generally caused by the inhalation of fibers from asbestos, which is a carcinogenic material. It’s commonly observed among employees in the building industry who may have long experience of asbestos. It could be caused by moving into asbestos covered buildings for an extended time of time, Genes plays an important role, and some folks are more vulnerable to the risk when compared with others.
