Meet Charlie and Charolette, a bonded pair of female pot-bellied pigs available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Charlie (black and white) and Charolette (all black) are both five years old and one of their favorite activities is taking a dip in their baby pool! Charlie is a super-friendly girl who doesn’t know a stranger while Charolette can be very shy about petting, though both take treats very gently. Pot-bellied pigs are similar to dogs in the sense that they can be house-trained, 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. These precious little piggies have been spayed and microchipped and are more than ready to find their forever home. If you’re interested in a snorting good time and would like to adopt Charlie and Charolette, please fill out an adoption application online. Their adoption fee is $275, though if you’re out of state it costs an additional $100 per pig 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).
Charlie & Charolette are …
– a bonded pair that MUST be adopted together!
– gentle with taking treats and both love to take a dip in their baby pool, though Charlie enjoys the company of people more than her buddy (Charolette is hand-shy).
