Faith, the dog best known for walking on two legs, was lost for several hours at the Orlando International Airport on Wednesday.

Faith’s owner, Jude Stringfellow, said the airline put her dog on the wrong flight. But there were howls of happiness as Faith and Stringfellow were reunited.

Faith is a celebrity famous for walking on two legs. She’s the world's most photographed dog, and what a day she had. "When you lose a pet, it's over you can't bring it back," Stringfellow said.

Stringfellow went to pick Faith up after arriving in Orlando on a flight from Oklahoma City. But she says for hours, no one could find her beloved dog.

"Nervous, and I was upset because they wouldn't give me any solid information" commented Stringfellow. Stringfellow said Faith's spirit kept her going. She was born without use of her front legs and still managed to survive.

"The whole concept behind my dog is faith and I named her Faith. And I can't give up hope or give up faith," added Stringfellow.

Finally, the airline tracked Faith down, saying she was accidentally placed on a different flight to Orlando.

American Airlines called it their mistake. A spokesperson said they are investigating.
