Meet Dorothy, a sweet pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Dorothy was pregnant when she came to the rescue in November of 2019 and gave birth to eight adorable piglets on December 30th. Now that her piglets are weaned and up for adoption themselves, this sweet mama is ready for her very own forever home! Dorothy adores belly rubs and peppermints and although she currently lives in the barn, she would likely make a fantastic indoor pig with just a little bit of time and training! 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. Dorothy has been spayed and microchipped and is more than ready to find her forever home. If you’re interested in a snorting good time and would like to adopt Dorothy, 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).
Dorothy is …
– extremely sweet and loves belly rubs and peppermints!
– currently residing in the barn, but could make a great indoor pig with some time and training!
