What are the chances that these two remaining, dominant pigs might get along?
Riker: 8 months old, VERY feisty, two failed intros with the same pig, (they lived side by side with a divider for a few months before the second try) he nearly immediately attacked the other pig both times.
Otto: 4 years old, "aggressive" towards other pigs and sometimes humans, he will bite people when he feels threatened and his triggers are unpredictable), otherwise very sweet, his nickname is "Dogpig" because he seeks out attention and loves to be petted.
So, long story short, how do I tell if the failed intros were just bad matches/personality clashes, and how do I know if I have to boars that just need to stay solo pigs? Do two dominant boars ever get along? I know the only way to know for sure is to try an intro, but I'm $1200 deep in vet bills so far this year, and nearly half of that is treating fight wounds, so I'm very hesitant. I've had pigs for over 12 years and have had many successful intros, but I'm at a loss with these two as far as pairing goes.
