Elliott belonged to a family that could no longer care for him. Unfortunately, this is a common story. The number of miniature pigs that lose their homes seems to be higher each month. While we cannot say yes to every one, when we met Elliott, he was overheated and in distress. We couldn't say no. He became part of our family that day. He fit in immediately, spending his time roaming the pastures when we're busy, and hanging out with us when we are near the house. He sleeps on the porch or with the yard pigs, and helps us take care of the youngsters. He is even kind enough to let Luna Rose "nurse" on his belly.
