IF - Adapt ( Base on a true story)

This weeks illustration is dedicated to Faith, the dog with only two legs. For a dog, its always a natural to walk on four legs, but for Faith, she has to adapt the walking style of a human.
Faith was born on 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.

Faiths owner, Jude Stringfellow took Faith into her family after Jude's son rescued the puppy from being smothered by her own mother. Jude taught Faith to hop by treating her with peanut butter but soon Faith decided on her own to walk.

Faiths fame rise when she appeared on shows like Oprah Winfrey Show, The Montel Williams Show, Animal Attractions Television and Ripleys Believe it or not.

Faith shows us that, it takes courage and motivation to be successful in life no matter if your perfect or not. Below are some pictures of Faith taken from various websites.
