Meet Rosie, a sweet five year-old pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Rosie was abandoned by her previous owners when they moved (how could someone do that?!), although being left behind didn’t take away her sweet and loving personality. At 100 pounds she is full-grown and is an extremely well-mannered girl, keeping her stall nice and neat. Rosie also loves to run around the yard, eating whatever snack she can find (like watermelon and pumpkin), and gets along with everyone, people and animals alike. If you’re in the market to adopt two pigs, she’s BFFs (Best Farm Friends) with fellow adoptable, Elvis Pigsley, and it would be wonderful if they could find a forever home together! Pot-bellied pigs are similar to dogs in the sense that they can be house-trained (although Rosie and Elvis 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 a snorting good time and would like to adopt Rosie (and Elvis), please fill out an adoption application online. The adoption fee is $150 for one pig and $275 for a pair, though if you’re out of state it costs an additional $30 and your pig must have a health certificate (Oinking Acres takes their pigs to Purdue Large Animal Hospital to have this done and receive the document).
