His name is Faith!
In the beginning, she put Faith on a surf board to let him feel the movements of the water. Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure and to reward him for standing up and jumping around. Even the other dogs at home helped to encourage him to walk. Amazingly, after only 6 months, like a miracle, Faith learned to balance on his 2 hind legs and jumped to move forward. After further training in the snow, he can now walk like a human being. Recently Jude has been busy taking Faith to Veterans Hospitals all over the country where he inspires wounded patients.
His present owner Jude Stringfellew has given up her teaching job and plans to take him around the world to teach that, "even without a perfect body, one can have a perfect soul."
PS Congrats Dad on your engagement to Lesa! Much love to you both
