Gorgeous George, as he’s known to staff and regular visitors to the DSPCA is a Vietnamese Pot-bellied Pig. He was bought as a present for someone and to their surprise he grew very big and very quickly! All piglets are small and people really need to do their research before buying a farm animal as a pet. George is not a house pet and needed a place where he could live a happy life and in the right environment. He has been with us since 2018 and is having a great life here at the shelter.
He lives with his pal Peppa and they both love spending their days sleeping in their little house where visitors regularly report hearing them snoring VERY loudly. They love seeing visitors coming and enjoy showing off their wonderful mud wallow. Pigs love to roll in mud, it helps cool them down. In very hot weather George and Peppa love rolling in the mud and playing together. Did you know that pigs are extremely smart and have great memories. They communicate by snorting so if they snort at you they are giving you a big warm DSPCA welcome!
