These are the wonderful little pigs that pigpal brought up from California. The boys are ready to find forever homes.
Most of the sows are on pregnancy watch, except the little black and white baby girl and the agouti and white baby girl.

Go check them out and let me know if you are interested in adopting a pair, or a single for your currently lonely guinea pig.

They are great pigs!!

I don´t know if you have the time, but it is a little confusing trying to figure out which are the boys. Maybe if you changed some of the titles and used "boar" as the first word, it would be easier to zoom in on the fellas ready to be adopted.

OK, I went and added the sex first on most of the pictures. If you click on the thumbnail photo, it will enlarge and you can see the full title.
Hope that helps!

Kleenmama, I was going to ask you about these pigs, but it looks like you beat me to the punch! Do the pics show all of the pigs? Also, did you find out if the agouti sow was indeed pregnant, and if so, do you have any idea when she will be having her pups? I live in Olympia, and am looking for two sows. A bonded pair would be fabulous...

Doh, I just reread your post, and found that my question had been answered. Sorry about that.

Agatha-
It would be great if you could give two sows a home. These pigs have been through a lot of neglect, suffering and hunger. They deserve a nice home.

Truth be told, I´ve been looking for teddies, but the sight of those lookers is making me reevaluate. There are very few teddies around these parts. I really like that agouti sow, and the self blacks, and that cute little striped black and white one...
I really must have sows, though, because I already have one cage with 3 boars, and I don´t have room for more than two cages in my matchbook sized domicile...

can you tell I´m talking to myself in an effort at restraint?

Well, I took a couple of Teddies up there, but they were both males. A self black and a red and white broken. I guess KM took them to Sandi´s rescue bacause I told her the Teddy boys are always troublemakers!

Agatha-
Are you trying to convince us or yourself?

I say you need three sows. Three boars, three sows, you know, even number...

Agatha, you´re a true piggy person! You start out with something particular in mind, but those cute faces make you melt!

Enjoy your two or three new sows!

Hey agatha! If you want more pictures of any of these piggers, I can take them and email them to you.
I´m not sure if the agouti sow is pregnant or not. I´m 99% sure the red satin is and the black girl with the white spot on her back and the white snip on her nose.
The solid black, I´m not sure yet. The black and white striped baby is for sure not pregnant, they were delivered in the shelter.
Even though I was a breeder, until I feel the babies in there I just can´t tell. I was always terrible at that.
The black and white striped abby boar is a character! He leaps onto his grassy hutch and chews the cage bars begging for goodies. He is in with a young red and white male buddy. They get along fine, even in close quarters.

Ya know, the morning I took the pigs up to Sandi, I never even looked at who I grabbed. I had gotten 4 hours of sleep, and been breaking up pig fights all night.
I never even picked which pigs were going, just started putting the ones I could catch in carriers and counting. When I finally got to what I knew was a manageable number for me, I stopped!

Oly is only a half hour from me, Agatha, so let me know. IN another couple of weeks, I should be able to tell about the agouti sow and also the solid black. I hope.

It would be so great if you could adopt one or more of KM´s rescues! I think there is something special about giving a home to a pig in need. And there is no doubt, KM will take excellent care of them while things are settling in and while the pregnancies unfold. She is a pig snuggler and will be able to tell you alot about them.

I think it is pig personality vs. looks that is the make or break thing. And so many pigs are great.
