I have to admit two days ago I was not a fan of skinny pigs. I had never seen one in person and just thought they were weird, but at my daughter’s 4h guinea pig club meeting when they pulled that weird little hairless thing out of the carrier and said he needed a home it was love at first sight! The poor thing had been bullied and attacked by their other male pig. He had little scars and scratches on his back (all of them had healed nicely already). My older daughter is not sure about him, but my 3 year old is obsessed! She loves that he has pink spots on him! 1D367E16-33D9-4B2C-A049-906AB1CC196D.jpeg 06595DF6-28BE-42D3-9D09-5D3AFC97482E.jpeg

I forgot to mention that he had an original owner that kept him alone and decided she didn’t want him anymore, he then went to the home with the male pig that bullied him. The people that had him now were keeping him in a separate cage after the fight but felt bad that he was alone, so they wanted a better life for him. I’ve been sending them pictures and updates and they are so happy that he is happy!
