Encino: (Feb. 8, 2015), Delilah Sweetpig is a beautiful black, silver and pink snouted 4.8 year-old, 135 lb female potbellied pig. She became part of our family at 12 weeks old and made pig aficionados of all of us and charmed our neighborhood in Encino, CA. Besides liking most of the usual piggy things, specifically following the sunshine throughout the yard, napping under rosemary bushes, tummy rubs, massages and brushing, she LOVES snuggling on laps, having her loose bristles tugged out in the spring, kicking her heels up after a swim in her wading pool and sucking on her lips when she sleeps. She likes learning new commands and tricks. Besides several routines and words she has learned, she sits, kisses, gives ‘sugar’, and does her ‘baby-face’ on command. She uses her ‘baby-face’ as her sign for ‘more’ and to remind us that its meal time. Delilah doesn’t care for small children and does not like dogs, the word ‘No’, rainy days and the cold. She also does not like leaf blowers or raw broccoli.

With the heaviest of hearts, we are faced with a decision we never thought we would make in finding Delilah a new home because she recently got in a fight with our son’s dog, and I was injured in the process of separating the two. As a mother, I am forced to look at our beloved pet as a risk in my home and I sense that what she may need for her happiness is something we cannot provide. It is my feeling that Delilah would likely do very well in a peaceful home perhaps with an experienced owner, perhaps with other pigs, but with no children or dogs.

Kara Fox just recently photographed Delilah for a calendar, and here is what she said about her experience working with her: “To anyone who loves pigs… Delilah is truly one of the smartest and best behaved pigs I have ever had the pleasure of knowing- So sweet.
She even kissed her ‘Mother’ gently right on the lips! She is precious and I still smile when I think of my time with her”- Kara Fox. If anyone is called to meet Delilah to see if she will fill a space in your heart like she has in ours, please call me.

Oakland: (Feb. 8, 2015), Hilary is an eight year old potbellied pig. She is a spayed female, black and white, 16 inches tall. She was rescued her from neglect and starvation; her spine, hips, and ribs were all very prominent at the time of rescue. She is doing well and gaining weight. She has been de-wormed but still needs her hooves trimmed. She is not leash-trained but likes scratches and attention. Her rescuer is not sure if she has ever had a litter box. Hilary is very neat in her stall, though. Her rescuer is unable to keep her long term. Hilary is currently living in a horse stall. Hilary will be rehomed only to a home where she can get lots of love and attention. Must have animal (and preferably pig) experience.

URGENT! Charlottesville: Two potbellied pigs are urgently in need of a safe home! Paddy and Buddy have had some bad luck. First, the two were homeless; then, they ended up at a sanctuary for pigs that has been foreclosed. Rescuers must place Paddy and Buddy into a loving home as soon as possible. They are friendly and loving pigs. Both have been spayed/neutered, de-wormed, micro-chipped, and vaccinated. These two are closely bonded and are in need of a home where they can live together. If you can offer these two a forever home, please contact Lorelei.
