Meet Blue.

Take yourself to the beautiful beaches of Palm Beach County, Florida. Home of PGA Golf, Vanilla Ice and a beautiful little pig that dons the name Blue Sweetness Duran. As if the town of Wellington didn’t have enough sunshine, Blue adds 45 pounds more. You can find this little princess at home with her Mommy and Daddy and their red-footed tortoise, ball python snake, two sugar gliders and two aquariums. PE🐽NY: When did you get Blue? We picked her up in October, 2014. She was born August 25, 2014.  PE🐽NY: Have you always wanted a pig? I have ALWAYS loved pigs but I never thought it was a possibility for me to have one since I didn’t live on a farm. When I moved in with my fiancé I knew we had to have a pet. Naturally, we were looking to rescue a dog. However, I began to research pet pigs and learned they made amazing house pets, and it quickly became clear to us that we had to have one! PE🐽NY: Where did Blue come from? It just so …

Meet Harper.

This blue-eyed, 50-pound, 10-month old baby girl comes to us from New York and is something special.  Her mama, Ariel, is an angel and loves to rescue exotic animals.  Her piglet, sweet Harper is just like all of our amazing and extraordinary pigs, except for one thing – Harper cannot hear. PE🐽NY: Tell us a little about your household. Who does Harper live with?  Harper lives with my boyfriend and I – and . . . . I have a 46-year old Blue & Gold Macaw that was surrendered over to my care two and a half years ago because she wasn’t cared for properly and had plucked out most of her feathers (still naked to this day).  She is jealous of Harper, so she is not the nicest to her, but has never hurt her.  I have an albino hedgehog, age unknown, also wasn’t being cared for properly and I have had her for one year now.  She is Harper’s “ouch-y” sister, and Harper knows it.  She will no longer go touch her, LOL.  She flinches every time …

Meet Olivia Pignewton John.

Olivia is a 400 pound’ish, 5-year old Vietnamese pot-bellied pig rescue. She was rescued by her Mommy, Amanda, and lives in Mississippi.  She has two piggy sisters, Lola (12) and Jazzy Bell (3). PE🐽NY: Where did you get Olivia from? We rescued Olivia on July 11, 2015, from Ocean Springs, Mississippi.  My sister saw her on Facebook and knew that she needed lots of love and that we could help her.  Our 3-year old pot-belly, Jazzy Bell, is also a rescue. PE🐽NY: What are some of the hurdles you have to overcome with Olivia? Long and short-term goals? Our biggest issue is her weight. Her legs hurt her daily due to all of the extra weight and the years of being sedentary.  She needs to lose about 150-200 pounds. We give her Osteo Bi-Flex daily with an NSAID (Osteo Bi-Flex is a joint supplement. It will help heal cartilage and lubricate her joints.  We give her the NSAID when her legs hurt her really bad).  She also does not drink regular water because her previous owners gave …
