Meet Elvis Pigsley, an adorable five year-old pot-bellied pig available for adoption through A Critter’s Chance Rescue! Elvis was caught as a stray after a couple of months evading his rescuers, but he’s a happy, low-maintenance boy with a laid-back personality. At 90 pounds, Elvis is full-grown and although it takes him a little bit to warm up to people, he’s a very good boy that will need a calm and patient owner and home. This low-key boy is also best friends with a fellow adoptable pig, Rosie, so it would be great if these two BFFs (Best Farm Friends) could be adopted together! Pot-bellied pigs are similar to dogs in the sense that they can be house-trained (although Elvis and Rosie prefer to be outdoor pigs), leash-trained and can learn tricks, but they’re also very stubborn and sensitive. The average lifespan of a pot-bellied pig is anywhere from 12 to 20 years and if you put in the time and love with your little oinker, you’ll have the undying love and loyalty of your pig. If you’re interested in giving Elvis (and hopefully Rosie!) their forever home, please contact Kelly Thomas with A Critter’s Chance Rescue in Plainfield, either by phone [(765) 430-5610] or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). The pig adoption fee is $150 and I’ve included the link to the pig-specific adoption application.
