This is Petunia, she will be 8 yrs. old this July. She is a Vietnamese Potbellied Pig. We rescued her as a orphan when she was just a few days old. She likes to sunbathe in her kiddie pool and steal my husband's tools when he is outside working.
Pigs are highly intelligent, sensitive, affectionate, curious, social, and interesting beings. They can make great pets but please do your homework first as there are specific zoning requirements regarding having them and they get much larger than most people realize when they get a piglet. They need proper mental, physical, and social stimulation. Please Opt to Adopt!

Petunia is beautiful and looks so happy! I love pigs, and I am so pleased that you expand your compassion for all animals, as they all have feelings and emotions and can connect with us and other animals. Thank you for entering her in the contest! Pigs are fantastic friends!
What a lovable little face. This post is so adorable. I am voting for it. Sweet! Robyn
I love the face. Is that a piggy smile?
Beautiful in a very piggy way. I burst out laughing. You should submit this to a stock photo company or a photo contest and see if your girl can earn you some money.
She's cute! Love her toothy grin ;-) My auntie used to breed pot bellies to supplement her income and they are so sweet and funny!
She looks to be a fun pet to have. Lucky you - lucky her!
Pam is great but Petunia is...well O.K. I guess, but I'm voting for her anyway. (Pam is my daughter so this is kind of a private joke)
I love Petunia! She is really cute. I have heard that pigs make great pets but have never met one first hand :)
