Compelled to put the past behind him, David struggles with the everyday task of simply living. Facing his greatest challenge, accepting the love and forgiveness for his past, he searches for ways to earn acceptance from those around him. Finally, losing his closest companion and friend-a German shepherd named Smokey, became too much. His dog had been the one friend who had never left his side and had always accepted him for who and what he was. David found himself in the one place he feared most. Alone. A place God never intends any one of us to be.
Abused and neglected, Cadie grew up alone. Rescued but still lost, Cadie became an award winning dog. She received the boomerang award at the rescue she was in. it was the award given to the dog who is adopted and brought back the most number of times. No one wanted her. And she didn’t want anyone either. She wanted to be alone. A place that’s not normal for a German shepherd. A place God never wants for any of his creatures.
This is when God does His greatest work.
Footprints is the true story of a man who finds the healing power of love only after he’s lost everything he valued and given up. It is a true story of a dog who learned to trust and serve only after she’d been discarded as worthless. It is the true story of a journey the two of them took that neither knew would bring them together.
But God did. Through His guidance, a man and a dog would experience the transformation of being unwanted to becoming cherished. And in the process, they would impact lives around them in only ways God could imagine. Just because you have a bad past doesn’t mean you can’t have a great future!
