Move over Wilbur, there’s a new pig in town.
A piglet named Miracle from Colorado is proving that even the smallest animals can overcome big odds. Born to a litter of six on August 31st, Miracle the mini pig came into this world missing something you’d think would be a total game changer: his back legs.
But even that couldn’t stop him.
The caretakers at Colorado Cutie Pigs didn’t know if the small pig would pull through, but those fears were quickly dismissed. Proving to be a fighter from the minute he was born, Miracle immediately began walking on his front legs and even went so far as to shove one of his siblings out of the way for a bite to eat.
While walking on two legs is working for now, it’s not a long-term solution. Miracle is currently being measured for his own set of wheels. Colorado Cutie Pigs owner Ari Smith set up a GoFundMe campaign to raise the $2,400 needed to buy a custom-fitted wheelchair and prepare Miracle for the journey ahead.
In a few months there’s hope he’ll be adopted by a forever family that’s equipped to deal with his unique set of needs. But for now he’ll spend his days hanging out on the farm and proving that miracles are indeed possible.
