Faith was a Natural Dog

It is with a very heavy soul and grieving heart that I must inform the world, and all of Faith the Dog's friends, fans, family, and loved ones, that she has passed.

She is with Jesus now, and is forever ever evermore running on four perfectly formed and beautiful legs. She is, and will always be, a glorious and wonderful friend. She had such an amazing life.

When I have more time to give her a proper tribute I will do so. For now I ask that you continue to pray for us today. Thank you for your love and support.

Condolences and memories may be posted on Faith the Dog's Facebook or the Guest Book on this web site.

Wonderful, Loving, Happy Smiling Doggie! Remember, ALL dogs go to Heaven!

So sad to learn the Faith has passed away. She was a beautiful dog with an amazing story. She impacted so many people around the world with her inspiring story and will be missed terribly.

Thank you for giving her a home and so much love.

She's running free on the Rainbow Bridge :)

So sorry for your loss, I can say that its the hardest thing to go through. I had to send my mama kitty over the rainbow bridge in feb of this year. Thank you for sharing your lovely faith with the rest of us, she gave a lot of people inspiration to do things they probably would not have done. Faith had courage and fire, Her disability never stopped her and it showed. God Bless you for loving such a beautiful little soul and her paw print has imprinted on many hearts. Thanks again for the honor to have known faith and her story.

I just learned about Faith an hour ago when my brother showed me a video of her posted on Facebook. When I got home, I came to your site and learned that Faith had passed some months ago. What an awesome, amazing dog! How truly blessed she was to have found you, and how blessed were you to have had such an inspiring spirit in your life. You have my deepest sympathies on your loss of the beautiful Faith. I hope it brings you some comfort to know that, even though Faith has crossed the Rainbow Bridge, she is still touching and inspiring people even today. There is a reason that Dog is God spelled backwards.

I did not get to meet you in life, but maybe someday I will see you at the Rainbow Bridge. You were truly an inspiration, Faith. You did more good in your life than the majority of people do. Animals are so much better at kindness and love than we.

I was very saddened to read that Faith had passed. I just learned of her life and plight moments before I read about her death. I'm very pleased that she had an enjoyable life. I'd like to thank you for making her life memorable and enjoyable. I, for one, will always remember her. I'll never forget the impact she had on me at the time that I learned of her death. She taught me so much in so little time. I hope to see her again if I'm so blessed.

What sad news! I have been following Faith from the beginning not realizing she was almost 12. Even though she had a great life, most of all she was loved which is what lots of animals never know. Faith's journey on earth inspired many & she showed humans how she was able to live not giving in to her physical handicap. I know lots of people who are always giving in who never learn. She has gone back to where she came from as an angel up above, happy to be whole again. "We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey." ~ Stephen R. Covey

I just found out that Faith had passed just moments ago. My heart was crushed upon reading the news. My sincerest condolences go out to the Stringfellow. Faith touched many people during her life and I am proud to be one of them.

While Faith will no longer be with us, her memory and story will live on. Dogs are miraculous creatures and our best companions - truly loving and giving. Faith was a shining example of how to handle and overcome physical challenges with a positive attitude. She might not have been given that chance had it not been for her loving family who saw something in her worth saving and they coached her to go on and do great things. We are all, human or animal, of great worth and given the chance, we can create change in the world if we reach out with love. I would have liked to meet Faith while she was here on this Earth. She was truly amazing and will be missed by all she touched.

RIP beautiful girl!!!

I am very sorry for your loss! I loose Spike on the 26th september and I am so sad. I hope now is happy with Faith and they can run together! <3 Faith was a special dog and made a great job in her life. she will not be forgotten! <3 <3 <3

I'm so sorry to hear of Faith's passing. All of us who knew of her are grateful for the inspiration she provided to those facing challenges. Dogs truly are love incarnate. As you grieve her loss, know that we grieve with you, and that we will continue to celebrate her life by remembering her.

God Bless You all. You will see Faith again in Heaven.

Dear Faith:

I am so sorry to hear of your passing. You had the most beautiful spirit and were so amazing and courageous during your time on this earth. You never let your disability stop you from loving life. You will be missed but it is time to rest with all your friends and Jesus.

RIP Faith

So sorry to hear of Faith's passing!! She was such an inspiration. Every time I saw a picture of you, you were always smiling. You emoted love. And she was truly blessed to have your family not give up on her dispute her disability. She has left an impact on my life by showing you can do anything. My heart is aching for you. I know she will always be in your hearts. RIP sweet baby, you have earned it. May you run free on 4 good legs. Love Joan Myers

I remember reading about Faith years ago and thought what a wonderful little boy to save such a sad puppy. Most would have turned away and not given her another thought. She was truly blessed that day and all those to follow. Knowing she lived to be 12 and all the good work she achieved throughout her life is just amazing. She had a beautiful soul and all those she touched will miss her deeply. My heart goes out to you and your family but know that all the memories you made with her will help ease the lost one day at a time.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful soul with all of us. I hope that you are comforted when you remember what a wonderful life she had with you.

We are so sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing Faith with the world. She was an incredible inspiration to so many people.

Faith was amazing and loved so much. She was always happy from all the love she received from you!. Thank you for letting us get to know her and love her. I know right now she is fine and running around free of all pain and watching over you and waiting patiently until you get to meet again. You were the best mother to her that is why she was here on earth as long as she was. God Bless you and all you have done for her. I am so sorry for your loss and you will be in my thoughts and prayers as well as my heart you are an amazing person for what you have done with a loving heart.

What a blessing for so many Faith was and will still be through the book you have memorialized her with! Sincerely condolences for your heartbreak and loss I know you feel from experiences. God bless you for giving this girl not only a "chance", but a "life"! To know love and kindness and accomplishments. She will most definitely be waiting for you at the bridge.

*and start kissing your face.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Faith was an isperation to all. Knowing she's not in any more pain can come at a great comfort. She'll be waiting at the Rainbow Bridge for her mommy when the time comes. When she finally sees you again shell run up to you on her four legs, wagging her tail, and start missing your face

RIP Faith, you will be missed by all.

So sorry for your loss of your sweet girl, Faith was A true inspiration,she will always live on in the hearts of all those she touched. RIP sweet Faith and fly high beautiful girl.

My thoughts and prayers go out to this courageous/miracle of love. May you rest in paradise Sweetie. You've touched so many lives that you will NEVER be forgotten. Your legacy will live on forever. My prayers are with the family as well. God Bless.

When a soul brings and shares as much Love into this world as Faith did she should be recognized as the miracle that she was. The lives that she touched and helped to heal is too large to count. Faith's soul and spirit is now free and she flies throughout the Heavens with no limitations. She is now the perfect companion to God.

what a wonderful being you were to so many sweet Faith.we all loved you so much and we will all remember your love and spunk!sending love and support to your whole family...and thank you for sharing your positive vibe!!!!!love you!!!!!

I am very sorry for your loss. While you rescued Faith, Faith rescued so many people. I am sure she will be alive in the heart of every person she inspired, every soldier, and every one like me that only had the opportunity to read her stories in facebook, but it was enough to admire her and now break in tears with the sad news!! I am sure God has special place for her. R.I.P

I'm so sorry to hear of Faith's loss. It's difficult with any of our pets, but the loss is even harder when they're an extra special one like Faith. So glad she was saved as a puppy!

I never knew about Faiths story until now. So sorry for your great loss. She was an amazing dog in her 12 years of life. Thank you for sharing and thank you for knowing when the time was right for her to go to the Rainbow Bridge. My Luke was 16 years old when went to the Rainbow Bridge. xoxo to Faith and Luke. God Bless you.

I want you to know how much you and Faith have inspired me. Saving her, believing in her, letting her create her own miracles... we all can learn from this in big ways! While I am so heartbroken for your pain and grief, I know she is free, waiting for you across the bridge, happy, flying, spreading her goodness still. Mari and family

Sincerest and heartfelt condolences. You and Faith have inspired so many. Sending healing thoughts and prayers to you...

I'm so truly sorry about Faith. I just learned about her, yesterday, on Facebook, and did my research on who she was. She was a truly beautiful dog. I only wish I had the pleasure of meeting her. I'm mobility impaired with Arthritis in my back & hips, in which I had to use a walker to ambulate. I can truly understand the pain that Faith must've been in. When I read about her life, I was truly inspired by her courage in defeating the odds with her disability. I love her very much, despite the fact I never met her. I love you guys too. God blessed Faith, & gave her the strength to overcome her disability. He also blessed you guys for saving & raising her. I'm buying Faith's books ASAP. Her tribute is also beautiful. Take care., & much love to you all.

I am very saddened to hear of Faith's passing. She was an inspiration to all who met her or read about her. Thank you Jude for accepting Faith and her disabilities. With your love and care, she had a wonderful happy life. She's at Rainbow Bridge running on four legs with her new friends. I'm sure you're very saddened without her by your side but her health and any pain were your first priority. She is out of pain now and I pray you take comfort in that. Thinking of you at this difficult time. '- Tay Cutchin Satterfield

Our prayer for your comfort and peace at such a time of loss. There are no words to explain how badly I feel for all of us who will miss your angelic presence on this earth. Thank you for your love and light.

My eyes are blurred with tears for you Jude. It's so hard to lose beloved fur family members, and Faith was especially beloved by so many. I know I'm one of may who are sending my condolences to you at this sad time, but they are deeply felt. Thank you for looking after her all this time. Sending you love and hugs. xxx

Faith was truly amazing, she inspired and touched so many lives; I am so sorry to hear she has passed - keeping Faith and her family in my prayers - may God comfort you and surround you with his love. Love Janie x

She will remain an inspiration to all for many years to come. May she run free of pain and watch over all who she has touched.

The world needs more souls like Faith :) it be a far better place xoxo rest in peace sweet Faith . ~ abby , booboo and butterhead

I am crying as I write this. I have been following Faith's life for a long time. I continued to be inspired and blessed by her life. I am sad and my heart hurts for you over your loss of her in your life. I envision her running along the Streets of Gold on all four legs. Jesus said, In as much as you have done it unto the least of these, you have done it unto ME.
Thank you Jade for adopting her into your life and sharing her with all of us. She will be deeply missed. Even though little animals do not have souls, I believe I will see her in Heaven with all my animals that have gone before me. Looking forward to that day.....What a day that will be..................................Prayers are with you......

God Bless Faith and you Jude. You all have inspired and brought so much love & joy to so many people including our service men and women. God bless you both and know Faith is one of God's many angels looking out for you :-)

Amazing dog and amazing life...may you rest in peace sweet Faith

May she RIP. She was a very inspiring dog and I often enjoyed reading about her and saw her on Oprah. I also want to thank you for being such wonderful custodians for this beautiful soul.

R.I.P Faith,
you were and still be an inspiration for everyone.

Dear Jude, you have my deepest condolences on your loss. The loss of any pet is a great one, but it must be so very much more for you with Faith, as she was so much more than just a pet to you. My heart aches for you and your family, and my prayers are with you as you grieve. I want to thank you for sharing this angel with the world, for saving her and giving her the life she was determined to have. She has done so much for so many, I am sad she is no longer with us, but glad she is no longer in pain. It truly was a miracle that she learned to walk the way she did, and that she lived to 12 yrs old as well is really something. You were so blessed to have this angel as your special girl, I know there will never be another like her, but I hope that soon your heart will be blessed with another angel whose soul will need the tremendous love you and your family have to give. Blessings to you~

condolences from Jakarta... may her memories strengthen and give hope always...

God Bless you Faith you had a remarkable life, you were an amazing girl, and you had a long and amazing life, may you run free and happy over the Rainbow Bridge, Bless you, special, amazing girl <3 XXXXXX

So very sorry for your loss, my prayers are with you and your family in this time of grief..Thank you for all you did for this beautiful soul she was well loved not only by you and your family but by all who were privileged to know her.

My deepest sympathy,Faith was an inspiration to so many people adopting animals who are deemed imperfect,as we all are,and her memory will live on and inspire generations to come.My heart is heavy for your loss but Faith had the best ever life and love .xx

i was so sorry to hear this but at the same time so happy that faith had such a good life w/ you. may she run & play & be happy in that place where dog souls go.

My heart is sad to hear about Faith. What an amazing soul, so full of courage, strength, and unconditional love. She will be missed. I send you hugs, Jude, so sorry for your loss. But so happy you had so much time with her and she experienced your love.

Faith was such an extra special soul. I am so very sorry for her family's loss. She was such a huge inspiration to people!!! There are a lot of people in this day and age that could take lessons from her.

To a most amazing dog and family. What joy you have brought to so many. Enjoy your peace and frolic for ever

The inspiration that you brought to everyone's life is made of gold. I know you will be missed by many and loved by all whose life you touched. When we have pets we should all love them to no end. I have a kitty, and she gives me a reason every day to put one foot in front of the other. My prayers go out to your family and all those that are mourning you!!! Run free of pain in heaven beautiful baby!!!

My most heartfelt sympathy goes out to Faith's family at this difficult time. God bless you for saving her and giving her a loving family and allowing her light to shine for the world to see. God bless you for all you have done. Faith's body wasn't perfect but her spirit sure was. Now she is in the arms of her loving creator and her body is now perfect to match her spirit <3

Such a beautiful soul she was. God Bless you and your family for loving her, giving her the best life possible and sharing her with others for inspiration! <3

My heart is broken for your loss. What a triumph she was to so many people! I will always remember that precious child & her unfailing spirit. May God's arms wrap around each of you & we will all see Faith in Heaven, running & loving life.

I am heartbroken for you to hear the news that Faith has died. I send prayers and warm loving thoughts and healing energy as you grieve for her. She was truly a gift in your life, and I know how much you will miss her. I believe she's running free of a body that was less than perfect up in Heaven, and you'll be with her again someday. Many people are thinking of you at this very difficult time....

So sorry for your loss Jude !! Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Faith's strength was and will always be a great inspiration. Rest in peace dear one!!! xx

Love the inspiration shared through Faith's life! I trust her life will continue those of others for decades to come! Love and light, Jesse

R.I.P. beautiful Faith! Rainbow bridge has another angel, you will be missed.

Faith had the perfect name, she was born challenged, and she was rescued by you because she had a purpose, she brought faith and hope to everyone who came in contact with her. She was an inspiration to all. Thank you for loving her enough to believe in her and care for her and even more so for having the strength to ease her pain. Her time here is done, she's crossed the Rainbow Bridge and is running all over Heaven! You have my deepest sympathy, I know the grief in losing a pet, but Faith knew she was loved by you.

I loved watching the videos of Faith. She was a true inspiration that anything can be overcome. It's very sad to hear of her passing, however there is no doubt that she has touched many lives and has shown everyone that any obstacle, no matter how big, can be overcome. Rest in peace.

Such sad news!! Thank you so much for rescuing this cutie and giving her an amazing life!! RIP Faith and have a great time at Rainbow Bridge!!

Rest peacefully beautiful! Enjoy your new home, running around, renewed. See you when we get there girl! Jude, praying for you, I know she'll be missed!

Have fun on the other side of rainbow bridge Faith. I saw your story years ago and was so inspired, you were a beautiful dog with a beautiful spirit. Your a poster pup for animals with disabilities and I hope your story continues to show people that just because an animal is different, doesn't mean it doesn't deserve a chance at life, and love. R.I.p pretty girl.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Faith was an amazing inspiration to many.

If at any time, I ever felt sorry for myself, I would take one look at Faith and I was ashamed. Faith can teach us all what it is to go through life with a disability and not complain. Her bright and happy disposition is a lesson for all of us.

R.I.P. Beautiful Girl.

Awe, Faith :( You were a true miracle, and God bless you Jude for all that you did for her. Faith, you were an inspiration to many and you won't be forgotten... rest in peace, sweet girl!

Rest in the very sweetest of peace, precious Faith...You are an eternal inspiration...the love and respect for you will never fade...God hold and keep your beautiful soul <3

Faith was an amazing dog and you all were awesome for taking care of her.

My Thoughts and Prayers are with you at this very sad time of Faith's passing. I just joined as I saw it mentioned on Arctic The Romanian Puppy's Page. I was reading about Faith. She was a very incredible dog and for sure much loved. She is now running free and healthy on The Other Side.

I have followed Faith for several years and found her to be awe inspiring. On behalf of my 6 dogs, 3 of which are special needs, I wish to send our condolences for a most courageous girl and to her humans who saw something special in this girl. Thank you for taking such good care of her and allowing us in to her life
Namaste, LaDawna Saylor and my 6

I just read the sad news as shared by Dunkin on Facebook. May you always have the wonderful memories of this special soul's life, a creature who was an inspiration to anyone who knew of her. Peace be to you all.

R.I.P Faith what a beauty, such an inspiration little girl, gone too soon little one, Soo saddened to hear, a wonderful inspiring beauty to all dogs and anyone that knew you, Great work 1 Superb Dog

Faith did so much for some many people, giving them hope and showing them adaptation! She was loved by all who saw this little dog who might not even have lived! I will miss her presence but she did what she came to do. We sincerely send our condolences.

I am sorry to hear the sad news of Faith's passing ,she was an amazing girl & she gave love & hope to thousands of people ,she was a living Angel & will carry on from above . Dear Lord ,I pray that Faith is sleeping soundly in your loving embrace ,she was a Very Special Girl & deserves the very best .... amen RIP Beautiful FAITH .... xxxx

Thank you for sharing Faith all of these years. Her inspiration touched so many people. I am sorry for your loss and mourn with you. However, we rejoice with you as well knowing that Faith is running in the grass and rolling around in it in heaven! Faith - until we meet meet on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.

I am so sorry to hear about Faith's passing. I had just rec'd an e-mail the other
day and I was happy to see that she was still thriving, so I am deeply saddened to
hear the news. This wonderful baby will now be free to run and play in heaven.
God Bless Faith and her family. Love to all.

Run Free Faith, a real inspiration to us all. God bless your family

Faith, we are going to miss you SO much! Your tenacity, strength, courage and most of all you wonderful, loving attitude was always such an inspiration. But I know a secret...I will see you again. And when I do, we will both be in a place where there are no more tears and no more pain. I have been told by some hopeless people that animals do not go to heaven, but it isn't true. Does not Jesus himself come riding in on a white horse when He returns once more? Heaven would not be heaven if the loyal and loving family members were not allowed!

And so dear one, you will see your beloved family again, I will get to meet you once more and marvel at all the people you have touched with your sweetness and your love and most of all...your faith, that anyone can over come difficulties and be all that God intended us to be. My heart hurts right now. Most of all for your family who has loved you so dearly, but know I keep them in my prayers. I, just like them, cannot wait to see you and hug you once more. God Bless you and your family.

Love you SO very much!

I am so sorry to hear about Faith, she was such a wonderful inspiring being!! You gave her a wonderful life & allowed her to touch so many people & make them happy. Thank you, and Thank you Faith for touching so many!! Rest in Peace sweet girl, I am so glad you had such a good life here on earth with your family. I know you will be missed.

For all of our cats and dogs who make it in spite of the predictions they wont, Faith was the inspiration. She makes you believe you can overcome anything! The Rainbow Bridge is a happy place today; Faith is there with all of her friends! Much Love....

Faith will always be in our heart and mind. What a lesson of life ! She was an amazing soul.
Rest in Peace Sweet Faith <3

So sorry for your loss!! I saw faith years ago and thinking of her passing brings tears to my eyes. My thoughts and prayers to out to you during this time.

Jude I am so sorry for your loss! Faith was a wonderful girl! She was lucky to have you and you were lucky to have her in your life! May God be with you in your time of loss! Faith will be waiting for you at Rainbow Bridge! She is now playing with no pain just happy times!
