has several titles in nadac & docna agility; her story was featured in a top agility magazine
rescued from a backyard breeder
When Lisa H. responded to the online ad, “Great Dane Free to Good Home,” she found Faith chained to a tree in the owner’s backyard. It was December in Central Pennsylvania, and all Faith had for protection and comfort was a box that was too small for her and a bowl of frozen water. Faith, who had been used for breeding, had just had a litter. Her family was getting rid of her because “she didn’t listen and kept running off.” Lisa knew she couldn’t leave Faith there. Neither the wife nor kids came out to see Faith off.
Lisa realized on the car ride home that Faith was deaf, something Faith's previous family had failed to realize in the 2 years they had had her. Faith, who was 2 years old and had never lived in a house nor been socialized or trained, was a wild child that first year. Lisa was at her wit’s end trying to calm and train this dog until she noticed how Faith “tracked” Lisa's footsteps in the yard and how interested Faith was when the other dogs trained. She decided to teach Faith both tracking and agility, and that is when things really turned things around for Faith. It turns out Faith loves to work, loves to train, loves to perform and loves to please. Faith found the perfect home for her, one that took the time and made the effort to bring out that well-trained dog and cherished member of the family that was hiding just beneath the surface.
