Meet Queen, a royally sweet five year-old pot-bellied pig available for adoption at Oinking Acres Farm Rescue & Sanctuary! Queen was confiscated from her previous owners when it was discovered that they weren’t able to keep her due to zoning specifications, but she was a very loved and spoiled indoor pig. She currently lives out in the barn with the other pigs, but clearly misses the cushy indoor life! Queen is everything and more that you could hope in a pet pig … extremely sweet and good-natured, calm and relaxed with kids and other animals, 100% housebroken and she loves a good couch for naps and cuddles. So many of the older pigs get overlooked when someone wants to add a pig to the family, but Queen is as close to perfect as you could possibly hope to find … please consider adopting an older pig! 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. Queen is 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 Queen, 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).
Queen is …
– currently living in the barn, but misses indoor life and would do best as an indoor pig (she really misses couch cuddles!).
– good with children and other animals.
