Meet Charolette, a cautious five year-old pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Charolette is a very sweet girl, but gets overwhelmed around large groups of people and would need a quiet and patient forever home. She also was attacked by a dog prior to coming to the rescue and needs to be in a home without dogs (and probably without small children due to her cautious nature). She does well with most other animals, however, as long as they’re docile and easy-going. 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. Charolette 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 Charolette, 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).
Charolette is …
