Meet Phoenix and Pua McDoogleson, an adorable bonded pair of pot-bellied pigs available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Four year-old Phoenix first came to the rescue in January of 2021 as an extremely malnourished and neglected girl, hovering near death. Phoenix earned her name and recovered, despite predictions that she wouldn’t make it, and continues to improve each and every day with love and care. During her recovery, the petite 50-pound Phoenix became bonded with another indoor rescue pig named Pua McDoogleson, a one year-old sweetie topping out at 100 pounds, and now the two are inseparable! Pua is the more trusting and outgoing of the two, but because these two are bonded they MUST be adopted together to an indoor home. 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. Phoenix and Pua are spayed and neutered (respectively) and both are microchipped and more than ready to find their forever home. If you’re interested in a snorting good time and would like to adopt Phoenix and Pua McDoogleson, please fill out an adoption application online. Their adoption fee is $275, 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).
Phoenix & Pua McDoogleson are …
– gentle, sweet and very friendly.
– a bonded pair that MUST be adopted together!
– good with children, dogs and cats.
– indoor pigs that need to remain indoor pigs.
– spayed and neutered (respectively).
