Two-Legged Dog

By  | 

Panama City is full of inspiring stories, but Wednesday we'll get a visit from a creature whose defied fate, and the Humane Society is hoping she'll save the day.

Faith the dog was born without her two front legs. Veterinarians recommended Faith's owner euthanize her, saying it was the humane thing to do, but her owner disagreed.

She and her family used peanut butter and a spoon to teach Faith to walk on her hind legs, and that is how Faith gets around.

Faith's story has spread. The dog and owner have appeared on "Oprah" and "Late Night with David Letterman."

Faith now has an agent, who is currently negotiating a role in the next Harry Potter movie, and her story inspired a book about overcoming the odds.

The Humane Society of Bay County is sponsoring Faith's visit Wednesday. There's no charge to see Faith, but Humane Society officials are hoping people will donate money. The local organization is desperately low on funds.

Faith will be at Panama City Toyota from 10 to 12 in the morning and at Panama City Mall from 5 to 6 Wednesday evening.
