Meet Wilson, a darling male pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Wilson was brought to the rescue after a local agricultural school closed, so he’s more than ready to find his loving, forever family! Wilson is harness-trained, knows several tricks and is extremely sweet and gentle with all people … he just wants someone to give him apples and rub his belly! He’s a bigger pig at between 275-300 pounds and has some vision impairment (which is possibly fat blind, so he’s working on losing weight), but he doesn’t let his disability slow him down … he’s such a sweetheart! 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 Wilson, 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).
