This is 'Faith'
This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002.
He was born with only 3 legs 
2 healthy hind legs
and 1 abnormal front leg which need to be amputated.
He of course could not walk when he was born.
Even his mother did not want, reject him.
His first owner also did not think that he could survive.
he was thinking of 'putting him to sleep'.
By this time,
his present owner, Jude Stringfellow,
met him and wanted to take care of him.
She is determined to teach
and train this dog to walk by himself.
Therefore she named him 'Faith'
In the beginning,
she put Faith on a surfing board
to let him feel the movements.
Later she used peanut butter on a spoon as a lure
and reward for him to stand up and jump around.
Even the other dog at home also helped to 
encourage him to walk.
Amazingly, only after 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 now can walk like a human being.

Faith loves to walk around now.
No matter where he goes,
he just attracts all the people around him.
He is now becoming famous on the international scene.
He has appeared on various news-papers and TV shows.
There is even one book entitled 'With a little faith' being published about him.
He was even considered to appear in one of the Harry Potter movies
His present owner Jude Stringfellew has given up her teaching post
and plans to take him around the world
to preach that even without a perfect body,
one can have a perfect soul.
In life there are always undesirable things.
we would feel better if we changed our point of view
to see things from another direction. 

----taken from original article-----
It's a forward email from my nice auntie,
Auntie Catherine,
I used to move her emails into my saved folder,
when i free then only i will open them and read.
By chance,
I just bottlenecked in my design,
as i couldn't find measurement drawing to start eveything,
I open my mailbox and read the emails.
They had been kept in my mailbox for weeks.
This is an article,
i want to share with all my fellow friends,
When i first saw the cute little dog,
i was like....err, so cute.
then i found something wrong in that picture.
where is its frond legs?
Besides of amazed by God's miracle,
I also impressed by the current dog owner,
for her patient and faith,
this article taught me a lot of lessons,
first of all,
Under God's wings,
nothing is impossible.
for a dog able to WALK like us.
Be thankful to everything,
appreciate whatever we have now,
when you feel you are unfortunate,
stop it!
there are lots of people, creatures
face and encounter misfortune.
accept who you are,
if you think you are not good enough,
no matter in materiality, physical appearance, wisdom, etc.
have faith and start give yourself a chance to change and improve.
Help yourself better than put the blame on God.
I know i still lack of all these strengths,
i'll try and let to chance.
