Piggy gets second chance at life

One of the latest internet sensations is getting a second chance at life.

The little guy was born with a disability and wasn't given much of a chance; that was until a veterinarian with some big ideas stepped in.

This piglet, "Chris P. Bacon,” was born with hind legs that don’t work very well.

A doctor adopted him and then made a wheelchair using his son's toys.

After little "Bacon" made his video debut, the doctor said calls poured in from Australia, Chile and Canada.

Dr. Len Lucero, Bacon's owner, said, “It's just a whole bunch of happy; you can't help but watch him and get happy."

Bacon outgrew his original piggy wheelchair and, for now, is using a medium-sized one.
