Meet Faith

Here is her story.

"Every now and then we hear of an amazing story that we never forget; the story of Faith is one of those remarkable tales that will leave you astonished and smiling.

Faith has learned to stand and walk on her two back legs like a human. On the face of it, itís not all that unusual to see a dog stand up to greet their loved ones, or even to raise up to beg for a treat, but Faith remains upright and actually gets around this way. She may be the worlds first and only biped canine.

Faith, who suffers from a birth defect,† became a member of the Stringfellow family of Oklahoma City when she was just a three -week old puppy. Puppies like Faith are rarely rescued and given a chance, but the Stringfellow family are remarkable in their own right. From the moment they first set eyes on Faith they were ready and willing to put in the time, effort, and expense to care for her.

"We taught her to stand up in the snow. When she did, her legs got stronger and she just ran across and started walking," said guardian, Laura Stringfellow."
