Meet Isabella Boo Boo.

Somewhere in the midst of Arizona’s painted desert, blooming cacti and blue skies – a little, teeny, tiny 7.2 pound pig plays the day away – and her name is Isabella Boo Boo.

She is a veterinarian who raises piglets and spays/neuters them before they go to their forever homes. We were lucky and only had to wait a few months for Daisy. She was expecting a litter and because of our recent loss of a piglet, she let us have pick of the litter. PE🐽NY: Recent loss of a piglet? I’m so sorry. Please share. Daisy is our second piglet. We had Ruby, she was a miniature potbelly. Ruby was eight weeks old when we got her.
