Oink oink!! My name’s PICKLE and I’m looking for my forever farm in sunny SoCal!

My rescue friends think I was born around March 3rd and like all baby piggos, I’m growing like a WEED! I want to find my peeps soon because they’re missing out on my hilarious piglet-hood. My foster mom says I’m the funniest, gabbiest pigren she’s ever met. Well after my start to life, I’ve got a lot to say and do!

I’m also known as the PV Piglet cuz I was first spotted running scared in a small forest in fancy Palos Verdes Estates (where pigs aren’t even allowed). No one knows how I got there, but I was pretty much just born, then taken away from my pig family and suddenly ended up in a big pickle. Lucky for me, I’m smart (cuz I’m a pig and we’re smarter than dogs and 3-yr-olds!) and resilient, and I had some guardian angels watching out for me until I was safely caught and placed in foster care. I had to learn that people can be nice and trusted, but it didn’t take long and now I’m addicted to belly rubs!

Some of my favorite piglet things include:

  • Eating, of course – I have 15,000 taste buds! You only have 9,000 🙂
  • Belly rubs – More belly rubs, please!
  • Excavating my mud hole, rooting around up to my eyeballs, and running zoomies after a good roll. Mud protects my skin from sunburn and keeps me cool since I can’t actually sweat.
  • Honking at my humans so they know I’m ready for more belly rubs – I’m chatty, and more belly rubs, please!
  • Eating while getting belly rubs – Could this be paradise?

Some mini pig FACTS:

  • There’s NO such thing as a micro, teacup, pocket, whatever itty bitty piggy. Pocket pigs are a lie sold to unknowing people by greeders.
  • ‘Mini’ is not a breed and doesn’t mean a ‘mini pig’ will stay smol. I’m currently 20+ lbs and maybe 3 months old, but I could grow up to 200 lbs or more! Who knows, who cares!
  • No one knows what kind of pig I am, but I’m all black with a nice round pot and 3 white chin whiskers 🙂
  • Pigs continue growing until they are 3-5 years old, and healthy pigs can live 20+ years.
  • Pigs can run a 7-minute mile, and since I’m still a baby, I can probably run faster than that.
  • Family is for life, and pigs are family too.

I’m looking for a loving home with people who like to hang out with their farmily. I’d also enjoy a friendly pig sibling or two. We’re herd animals, after all. I love nice dogs and have no problem flirting with my foster fam’s Pyrenees when he’s on duty. I also think tunneling through a giant pile of straw makes bedtime a little more enjoyable.

My foster mom says I’m a happy little pigren who always has a smile on my face. My smile’s extra big when my feet are in the air and my belly’s getting rubbed. I think I impressed her with how fast I adjusted to my new life in foster care, and I know I can impress you too. Are you the missing part of my universe? My bags are packed and I’m ready to talk my way into your heart! Don’t wait another minute – call the Rescue Lady today and ask about the Pickle!!

Oooh, and extra special thanks and piglet kisses to my two amazing angels who truly saved my life. Honk honk!
