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.

Manteca: (May 18, 2015): Snooter is a neutered male two-year-old potbellied pig who is in need of a new home. He is trained; he comes in the house and, if he needs to go outside, he walks to the door and waits for someone to let him outside to the backyard. He enjoys the backyard when the weather is nice. He hasn’t displayed any signs of aggression. His hooves need to be trimmed and he needs to be on a diet because he’s a bit chubby. He is great with other animals, such as cats and dogs.

Stamford: (May 18, 2015): Pippa is a 4-year old guinea hog who is in need of a safe and loving home. Her sadly all too familiar story is that she’s has been exploited as a breeding female & because her body has tired out from all her pregnancies, her milk production is too slow, leaving her owners having to buy formula for her piglets. In short, they see her as useless. She is now being thrown away for $150 dollars as “a pet” because she’s apparently very friendly & actually likes humans, or “as meat”… simply because they can. It’s been a few weeks since this offer was posted online & no one had yet inquired about her before I heard her story. R&J would like to save her but do not have a home in which she can live out her life. They are willing to pay the $150 fee and are also willing to transport her, if need be.

Waianae: (May 4, 2015), Wilbur was found Christmas eve 2014 stranded on the side of the road when he was one week old. Wilbur was very sickly and all of 4 lbs. when he was found and rescued. His rescuers cared for him night and day and he is now completely healthy. He is now a robust neutered Yorkshire farm pig. His rescuers live in a townhouse, though, and Wilbur is outgrowing it. Although his rescuers are moving to a new home soon, it too will not be very accommodating to a full-grown farm pig. Wilbur is incredibly sweet and friendly. He loves to have his back scratched and to be anywhere his humans are. According to them, “he brings laughter and joy every day and everywhere he goes. Wilbur is the sweetest, most lovable, laid back gentle giant. Everyone loves him and he loves them, too!” He much prefers to fruit and veggies to any sweets.
