Rescue Me ID: 14-12-14-00157Pig (male)

Farm Animal    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Animals 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    Reno is a good pig. I got him as a companion for my female pig but she passed away. When she was alive he was really sweet and fun but now he is getting aggressive and I am scared of him. He knows how to sit and he used to be really gentle. I am a cancer survivor and I don't think I have the energy or strength to resolve this issue. If I cannot find a home for him hopefully with someone who has experience I fear I am going to have to put him to sleep. This is heartbreaking for me but I am afraid he is going to knock me down. When he had a friend he was just wonderful. My other pig who passed away was the most gentle and sweet ... (Read More)creature but she was defiantly the dominate pig in the family. Reno is altered and Meho my other pig was not and they really got along great. I am afraid he is angry with me because I had to put her to sleep and I don't blame him. If you can help me or your are a rescue please help me. I am even willing to take some lessons on pig management if that is even possible. I put somewhat dominate for his temperament because he used to be so sweet and when I was going through chemo he would let me lay on him and we would rest together, but now when I feed him a carrot he gulps it and kind of charges at my hand. I am so worried. Thank you for reading this. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Farm Animal in New Mexico
    Farm Animals can make good pets in New Mexico 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.
