San Francisco International airport has got a therapy pig to help calm stressed passengers.

That's right, LiLou is a trained therapy pig and will be joining a team of mostly dogs to wander around the airport to greet passengers.

The spotted Juliana pig will also be wearing a vest which says "pet me," which is a lovely blue colour.

Not only that, but LiLou has more surprises up her sleeve, she can perform tricks such as twirling, standing on her hind legs, greeting people with her snout, and can even play a toy piano.

Plus, when she's not at the airport she also works in hospitals and centres for senior citizens.

The therapy programme started at the airport in 2013 and all animals are trained and certified to be Animal Assisted Therapy animals.
