Meet Minnie, a sassy five year-old pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Minnie was brought to the rescue at the beginning of 2020 when her family had to move to an area where they were unable to take Minnie along with them. She’s a sweet girl and loves to flop over for belly rubs, but she likes to push the limits and can be a bit nippy and territorial, so she will need an experienced pig owner. 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. Minnie 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 Minnie, 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).
