Meet Scarlette, a delicate eight year-old pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Poor Scarlette has only recently discovered what it’s like to be around kind humans after being starved her entire life in order to stay “micro mini.” Her bones never developed properly and she will need an experienced pig owner who can provide her a quiet, stable home and the love and patience she so desperately deserves. She occasionally bites (who could blame her after her years of abuse and neglect?!) and would need a quiet home with no other pets and no small children. 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. This precious girl has been spayed and microchipped, is litter-box trained and is more than deserving of a loving, forever home. If you’re interested in a snorting good time and would like to adopt Scarlette, please fill out an adoption application online. Her adoption fee is $150, though if you’re out of state it costs an additional $100 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).
