Meet Griz and Koda, an adorable bonded pair of male pot-bellied pigs available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Griz is five years old and, though super sweet, is very hand-shy and does not care for human touch. Koda is two years old and, though also hand-shy, is a curious boy and is more open to human interaction. Griz and Koda would make great pasture pets where they can just be themselves, but with some time, love and patience, there’s definitely potential for these boys to become more affectionate! 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 neutered 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 Griz and Koda, 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).
Griz & Koda are …
– a bonded pair that MUST be adopted together!
– very hand-shy (especially Griz) and would do best as pasture pets, though with love and patience there’s always the potential for more affection!
