Miracle the pint-sized porker taught himself to ‘handstand’ walk after being born with deformed stumps for rear legs. His careers at Colorado Cutie Pigs in the US have now bought him a tiny wheeled frame which straps onto his body and allows Miracle to pull himself along. A spokesperson for the centre said: “We didn’t think he would live as moms usually abandon the ‘sick’ ones. “Babe did not though. We watched as he figured out how to walk on his front legs in a matter of a few minutes. He’s a strong little guy.”
