Chris P. Bacon is one lucky pig: He was born without the use of his hind legs and was taken to a vet with the request that he be euthanized. The veterinarian, Len Lucero, took one look at the little guy who appeared happy and healthy and vowed to keep him.

Chris went home with Dr. Len and within a matter of weeks became he became a YouTube and talk-show sensation when his adopted dad, veterinarian Len Lucero, posted a video online of tiny Chris learning how to use a cart made out of toys. This determined piglet soon mastered the device and was rolling to interviews across the country.

More importantly, he's won thousands of hearts: he has over 60,000 followers on Facebook, a dedicated fan club, many popular videos on YouTube. Chris P. Bacon's joyful demeanor and excitement for life have inspired people all over the world to view their lives in a new way.
