Meet Louie! Louie came to Ross Mill Farm suffering from extreme obesity. He lived in the corner of a barren floor in a rundown home, with an emotionally unstable family life. Susan picked him up in April 2018 when he was 2 y/o. His hooves were in bad shape and he was very obese, weighing almost 200 lbs at only 2 years old. Louie was in good health when he was adopted at 1 y/o - so the massive weight gain was all done within a single year!
Louie is an excellent success story: he is no longer on a diet & completed his weight management plan. He is currently living in an outdoor environment. His family said he was good with animals (cats, dogs, rabbit) although he hasn't been around them for years. (Dogs and pigs should always be supervised and never left alone when together.) He is currently living with pen mate Sergio.
Louie is good pig with a big personality. In general, pigs often do not do well with transition and upheaval in their lives. Louie was a bit stressed when he first came to live at RMF and he really values stability, so his new family will need to have patience with him while he adjusts. Louie seems to prefer women over men. The staff will be able to tell you all about him. Louie is a pig who is full of energy and likes to explore. He would make a lovely companion for the right new home.
