|Rescue Me ID: 17-03-29-00580Pig (male)|
Acorn the pig was dumped off in a cardboard box when he was but a tiny piglet. I bottle fed him, and taught him how to eat. I fell in love and convinced my husband to let me keep him. I soon found I was in over my head. We are simply not equipped to handle a farm animal. He is not a huge animal, he's now about the size of a cocker spaniel (although much heavier) at about four months old. He has strawberry blond hair, he loves our pet cat and socializing with people. I feel like he needs a companion. We live set off the highway but he's still wondering to close to the road, I fear he eventually will go in the road. We live on family land so we can't put up a big pen for him, big enough that he would be comfortable. He sits for treats and is highly intelligent, he gets mouthy when he doesn't think he's had enough pig pellets. He can get grouchy, but I think he would be fine if neutered. I will pay to have him fixed first if you would prefer it. I want him to go to a great farm home with other farm friends!! (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Farm Animal in Arkansas|
Farm Animals can make good pets in Arkansas if they match your IifestyIe. Farm animals such as sheep, goats, and pigs are useful additions to working farms. For example, sheep can provide people with milk for cheese and other dietary staples, as well as wool for clothing. Dairy goats are so hardy and such valuable sources of food that providing one for a family living in extreme poverty (through an organization such as Heifer International) can completely alter the existence of that family. Farm animals provide manure for fertilizer to grow healthy vegetables. The sale of dairy, wool, and offspring of farm animals can be a major source of income. Many people think farm animals are cute and picturesque and would like to own one or more. However, caring for these animals is very labor intensive, and unless these animals are part of a working farm, they can become the victims of abuse or neglect.
Potbellied pigs are an excellent example. Potbellied pigs became popular as house pets in the nineties. However, pigs can weigh over 130 pounds and are not as easy to care for as other household pets. Pigs need to be outside to satisfy their natural instincts to rut. Sadly, many owners of potbellied pigs are not ready for the commitment and challenges of having a pig for a pet, leaving many animals in need of adoption.
