Keep the faith
Animal Planet's Underdog to Wonderdog program got a call about a dog named Faith who was having trouble finding a home. Faith is a german shepherd/rottie pup that has limited use of her rear legs, but still managed to scoot around. Yet, her severe limitations made her a tough case for adoption, and in many circumstances, she would have been euthanized. This team was not going to give up on this girl. The team was able to get all kinds of help for Faith, including water therapy, where she amazingly learned how to stand on all fours on her own for short periods of time. Faith did a lot of hard work, and took agility classes and now gets along great with the help of a set of wheels, and has a home! Check out the adorable video about Faith on the Animal Planet website. (You have to watch a 30 second ad at the beginning of the video, but it is worth it).
