Meet Willie, a shy four year-old pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Poor Willie was rescued from a tragic hoarding situation in Michigan as a group of 15 pigs, so he tends to be on the shy side and makes you earn his trust. Once you bring him treats and show him that humans can be kind and loving, he’s such a gentle soul and will lay down for belly rubs! Even though he’s a sweet and gentle boy, Willie would still be happiest as an outdoor pig where he can enjoy space to roam. 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. Willie is neutered, 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 Willie, 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).
Willie is ….
– a bit shy at first, but warms up quickly, especially once you bring him treats and give him belly rubs!
– best as an outdoor pig.
