Chris P. Bacon is one special pig!
Chris was born in January down in Central Florida without the use of its hind legs. A disability that usually results in a pig being put down - which was what the original owner was planning to do!
But the veterinarian of Mr. Bacon just couldn't do that, and so he instead adopted the little piglet himself.
Soon the veterinarian, using his son's K’nex toys, put together a cart with a harness for the little pig, hoping it may spur the pig to walk.
Here's what the veterinarian slash owner said was the reason he didn't put the pig down:
"His front legs were down on the ground, his back legs were up in the air, and he was balancing and walking forward. He was full of life. So I thought, there was no way I could put this thing down, I’d rather give him a fighting chance, at least if not at my home, I would find someplace for him."
Chris P. Bacon now lives on a farm with the kind veterinarian and his family, who the vet says, just adore the little piggy!
How could anyone not?
Just look at the pink little guy!!! Sooooo cute!!!
