Faith may technically be disabled, but the two-legged dog has an amazing ability to bring joy to those around her. Faith was made an honorary sergeant in the U.S. Army, thanks to her frequent visits to disabled veterans on bases and in hospitals around the U.S., TNT Magazine reports. Now her owner hopes to bring Faith to the U.K. to cheer up British troops wounded in Afghanistan.

The 8-year-old Lab-chow mix was born with one front let missing and the other severely deformed, according to The Sun. Despite the long odds, her owner, Jude Stringfellow, refused to put her down. Faith's damaged front limb was amputated, and Stringfellow taught the dog to walk upright on two feet. After her own son served in Iraq, Stringfellow decided to take Faith to visit a veteran's hospital, TNT magazine reports. The inspiring pooch was an instant hit.

"She shows what can be achieved against great odds," Stringfellow told The Sun. It just goes to show that anything is possible -- with a little Faith.
