Hi to all New to this great forum we live in England and have just rescued a Tripod by the name of Faith she is a Brindle Greyhound and has just turnded 7 yrs old she has been with us since feb 08 but we had been seeing her for a few weeks previous to get her used to our other dog Butch as he can be a bit odd around strange and new dogs we lost our other dog nearly 2 years ago a greyhound cross at the age of 18? she was also a resscue Faith was found with a badley broken leg roaming so a rescue took her in and the leg was broke in 5 places and the vet said it would be kinder for her to loose the leg But this never stopped her doing a great jump into the car the day the leg was removed scaring the vets and the rescue half to death she is settling in to her new home very well and nothing stops her doing what she wants to do she is so loving and cant imagine my life without her now. Well thats her story Look foward to reading through the forum about all the other dogs.

Big hugs go out to you for giving Faith a forever home. I have done some work with borzoi rescue and know that these kids are loving and grateful and deserve a happy home. It sounds like Faith has a great attitude and will have a wonderful tripawd life.

Faith is an inspiration to all dogs, proving that we are born with three legs and a spare. Thanks for sharing her story.
