Meet Nanny and Robin, a bonded mother/son pair of pot-bellied pigs available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Nanny is approximately two or three years old and came to the rescue pregnant with her darling boy, Robin, who was born November 8, 2018. Nanny can be slightly skittish, but is a very sweet girl when taking treats from your hand! 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 neutered (respectively), 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 Nanny and Robin, 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).
Nanny & Robin are …
– a bonded mother/son pair that MUST be adopted together!
– a bit skittish around new people (especially Nanny), but are very good with taking treats from your hand.
– spayed and neutered, respectively.
