Meet Pua McDoogleson, an adorable one year-old pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Pua, a sweetie topping out at 150 pounds, used to be bonded to another pig, Phoenix, but she was adopted and Pua was accepted into another herd of pigs. Pua is a trusting and outgoing boy and could be either an indoor or outdoor pig, but he MUST be adopted with a friend if he’s going to be outdoors. 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. Pua is neutered and microchipped and more than ready to find his forever home. If you’re interested in a snorting good time and would like to adopt Pua McDoogleson, please fill out an adoption application online. His adoption fee is $150 ($275 if you adopt him and a friend), though if you’re out of state it costs an additional $100 per pig and your pigs must have a health certificate (Oinking Acres takes their pigs to Purdue Large Animal Hospital to have this done and receive the document).
Pua McDoogleson is …
– gentle, sweet and very friendly.
– attached to his current herd of pigs and MUST be adopted with a friend if he’s going to be an outdoor pig.
– good with children, dogs and cats.
