Meet Monty, an adorable four or five year-old pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Monty was pulled from a southern Indiana shelter after being found as a stray, so not much is known about this precious oinker’s history. Monty is a sweet boy that loves people (including children!) and especially adores belly rubs … you start to rub his belly and down he goes to enjoy it thoroughly! 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 sweet boy has been neutered and microchipped and is more than ready to find his forever home. If you’re interested in a snorting good time and would like to adopt Monty, please fill out an adoption application online. His 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).
Monty is …
– extremely sweet and good-natured and loves belly rubs!
– good with children.
