Miracle the pig was born on August 30, 2016, in a litter of six piglets. His name is very fitting because he’s had it rough since the moment he was born. His mother’s umbilical cord was wrapped around him, so he wasn’t able to grow properly.
He was born with deformed back legs that didn’t even function. They didn’t think he’d live past the first day, but he proved everyone wrong. He even found a way to walk using only his front legs.
Sadly, when piglets are born sick or deformed, the mother pig usually abandons them. But that was not the case for little Miracle. His mother, Babe, didn’t leave his side and continues to care for and love him just the same as her other piglets.
Miracle is resides at Colorado Cute Pigs and is in the process of getting a wheelchair to help him get around more comfortably. This little guy beat all of the odds and not only has he survived, he thrived!
