Babe, is that you?
This British oinker doesn't just think he's a dog - he beats them!
At just 10 months old, Louie the pig capable of racing and jumping alongside guys twice his age at dog agility shows across the U.K.
It all started when Louie's owner, set up practice obstacle courses for her pack of pro dogs at home. Like clockwork, Louie would run up to the fence, wanting in on the acrobatic action.
One day, he shocked his owner by zipping through a tunnel on command, solidifying the squealer's spot on the canine team.
"I was really taken aback. I thought, 'Hold on a minute — the pig's doing a better job than the dog.' "
Now the nimble pig throttles over fences and conquers elevated walkways with ease. His owner hopes to enter him into competition at Crufts, the English equivalent of Westminster and one of the largest dog shows in the world.
Until then, Louie is content to keep up his fine physique and fill his precious little potbelly with ginger biscuits — the reward of choice for this "when pigs fly" champion.
