Frank is one of 7 potbellied pigs at the sanctuary. He arrived in 2004 along with two other pigs. They came from a southern California neglect case. A man had 6 pigs and in two years, he ended up with 300 on less than an acre of land.

It takes a full five years for potbellied pigs to reach their full size. Potbellied pigs can make wonderful companions, but require extensive and often specialized care. Obesity and arthritis are a constant concern. Do your research before adopting one.
