Archie (pig). Arrived 11 July 2015

Adorable Archie was surrendered to a municipal pound as the owners could not afford the licensing fee. Everyone at the pound fell in love with Archie and pulled out all stops to find him a new forever home even though he was coping well and getting lots of love and belly rubs.

When Archie didn’t find a home in time, we of course opted to move him to Happy Hooves, and we’re glad we did – as it turns out, Archie has some significant behavioural issues of a errmmm … delicate nature that would have been problematic for any new adopter… we’re working on it.

Archie is super friendly and affectionate and very used to humans – he had grown up in the suburbs with a dog at his previous home, and picked up a few doggy behaviors like nipping at your heels as you walk but seems to have grown out of that.

We are actually very happy that no one else offered him a home – he is such a sweet-natured, playful little guy and we are very lucky to have him around. He is LOVING the new Pig Paradise quarters, paddocks and mud wallows and appears to have a “special” friend in Inka.




Would you like to help us to take care of Archie?  One off donations and sponsorship gifts are available now to support our work. Thank you for caring about farm animals.
