Posted: Updated:

CLERMONT, FL (WESH) -- The world's latest Internet sensation, Chris P. Bacon, lives in a small veterinary clinic in Clermont, Florida.

Chris P. is disabled -- his little hind legs don't work.

"She wanted to do the most humane thing possible. She was distraught. She was crying up a storm, and I said, 'We've got options here,'" said Lucero.
