    Faith had been living near Paseo and 58th street in Kansas City for many months.

    Despite such horrific ordeal, Faith didn't give up.... She kept faith that she would make it...

    The dog, a mostly white Pit Bull mix, was seen pretty much every day in the area, hanging out by a church and sometimes in the yard of a house at the corner of the street. The dog would cross Paseo Blvd several times a day and it's a miracle she had not been killed by a car....

    A kind lady who lived across the street was feeding her every day. She told us that when the dog appeared in the neighborhood, she was skin and bones. Thanks to her daily meal, she had now gained weight, though she was still thin.

    A MPR volunteer drove by the area every day after work and started having a good idea of the dog's whereabouts. She would not let anyone close to her though. She was terrified of people of kept a good distance. Several rescuers were concerned and trying to figure out how to catch her. People in the neighborhood were collaborative and eager to see this poor lonely dog saved. A few days before Thanks Giving, MPR group as well as SNKC folks decided to move forward...

    Sweet Faith | Hopeful | Smiling | Grateful

    We worked together on a good plan and managed to catch the dog with a slip lead. The way it happened, it was as if the poor lost-soul had finally decided to surrender and give up her struggle to survive....

    Meet "Faith"... She is sweet... She is well behaved, she loves car rides, she is good in a crate, she is housebroken, she knows sit..... And she was already spayed! We have no clue what happened to this poor dog and why she lived alone in the streets for so long. People remember seeing her there since last spring.... We are still amazed that this dog, who was obviously someone's companion, survived for so long. We can only imagine the fear, the stress, the despair....

    MPR immediately moved her to a caring foster home where she is recuperating from her ordeal. We are treating minor health conditions; a broken tooth, eye infection, flea infestation... Nothing serious... She is fine; She is heartworm negative... We feared that treating her emotional wounds would be more challenging but Faith is proving us wrong. She is quickly learning to trust people again... Even a tail wag for the vet... She follows foster mom around, trying to stay close to people.. She even hopped on the couch and cuddled last night....

    For me? | Too Sweet | Adorable girl

    She is still edgy and you can tell that months of operating in survival mode will take a little while to fade away but Faith seems to really want to put her nightmare behind her....

    What happened to Faith? Where is her family? Is someone looking for her? We so wish she could tell us her story and help us understand why she went through this... We will probably never know but we promise Faith that she is safe now, and will never sleep another night alone, scared, cold, hungry and heartbroken....
