|Rescue Me ID: 16-04-27-00279Pig (male)|
I rescued this baby when he was only 3.5 weeks old. I got him from a shady farm on Craigslist that I just knew would be shipping him off if I didn't get him. He was born on March 5th. He is still on a milk replacer. He will be seven weeks old on Saturday. His name is Franklin. The lady I got him from said he was neutered already and that his parents were only 40 pounds. When I arrived to get him and see the parents she wouldn't let me. I have a bad feeling that he is a hog and will get even bigger than I expected. His ears were mangled and they said he was playing rough on the farm. The lady I got him from has blocked my number it seems as none of my calls go through. I planned on keeping him in my apartment until the lease ran out and I could get a place with a backyard that he'd be happy in. I fear that he is a hog and will get too big to handle by the time my lease runs out in January. I am rehoming him for the simple fact that he needs more friends that are also pigs and a nice farm or big back yard space to play in. He is so friendly and loves cuddles. I also have a cat and dog. He loves my cat but Franklin's hair stands on end when he's around the dog. Please text, call, or email me. (Less)

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