|Rescue Me ID: 15-03-23-00498Potbelly Pig (female)|
Susie is looking for her forever home. She is 2.5-3 years old and is currently being fostered in Stratford, CT. She is only 50 lbs (weighed her last week), spayed, house, crate and litter trained (may need a refresher in a new environment but uses a dog door with ease). She needs to go to an experienced pig home, ideally with at least one other pig. She is very smart and will try her luck (for treats and dominance) with inexperienced humans. She is not a fan of dogs as their running around scares her and she will nip at them. She is ok with cats and has ignored the parrot - although appreciates the morsels he drops on the floor 'for her'. She has only been an indoor pig, but may adjust to outdoor depending on the situation and with time. Susie visited a pig-experienced vet last week for a general wellness exam and a fecal test - all clear! She enjoys the car rides (but would do best with a ramp to get in), carrots, green beans, leafy veggies, cheerios in treat balls, butt rubs and once she trusts you, naps on the sofa behind you. She came to us when her 'human parents' of 2 years had a baby. $150 adoption fee to cover the vet fees and supplies she will come with. Please call or email me if you are seriously interested in adopting her and are ideally within 2 hours from Stratford, CT. We look forward to meeting you. (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Farm Animal in Connecticut|
Farm Animals can make good pets in Connecticut 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.
