Faith the Two-Legged Dog to Visit British Troops Wounded in Afghanistan


A two-legged dog from the U.S. that walks upright is set to inspire British troops wounded in Afghanistan, The Sun reported Tuesday.

Faith, eight, was made an honorary sergeant in the U.S. army for helping disabled veterans battling to overcome their war zone injuries.

More on Faith the dog.

The Labrador-chow cross marches on her hind legs wearing a military jacket when she visits bases and hospitals, where soldiers have taken her to their hearts.

Now there are plans to bring her to the U.K. if quarantine rules can be met.

Owner Jude Stringfellow said from her home in Oklahoma City, Okla., "Faith seems to inspire these young men. It's very emotional watching them respond to her. She shows what can be achieved against great odds. I'd love her to bring a smile to the lips of British soldiers."

Faith was born with one front leg missing and the other severely deformed.

Vets wanted to put her down but Stringfellow refused. The bad leg was amputated and she learned to stand upright by being offered peanut butter on a spoon.

Jude said, "She then learned to walk and a vet suggested she be an inspirational dog."

Faith, often seen in public in the U.S., has been on the Oprah Winfrey show and met Lindsay Lohan.
