Chris P. Bacon (great name, right?) was a cute little pig that was born without function in his hind legs which left him unable to walk. He was first discovered by a young woman on her family’s farm. She brought baby piglet to a Florida veterinary clinic, thinking that it might be best for the little pig to be put down. A vet at the clinic named Dr. Len Lucero saw a different future for the little piggy and decided to adopt him personally instead.

Dr. Lucero wanted to help Chris P. Bacon to feel independent and lead a happy life, so he constructed a small wheelchair out of his son’s set of K’Nex toys. This small functioning wheelchair allowed Chris P Bacon to move around independently. Video of Chris using his toy-made wheelchair went viral on the internet- allowing him to become a piggy superstar. He has also upgraded his wheels, trading in his homemade wheelchair for a professionally-made wheelchair.
