One little piggy who went to great lengths to avoid going to market has found herself at the centre of a custody battle. The RSPCA has been inundated by calls from people offering to take in the piglet, named Jasmine by staff at its Chesterfield Animal

Hey Michael, maybe she's happy with the one she already has lol !!!!! They do make great pets and are very easy to house train.

I LOVE PIGS! Good Luck to the lil piglet.
I have a 300 pound pot belly pig, her name is Piggy and she was a rescue due to a county zoning. I could not resist her it was "piggy love" at first sight, *lol* I LOVE ANIMALS!
She is very intelligent indeed! My "Piggy" has a schedule that she follows strictly everyday and she lets you know if we are off her schedule. She has her own bed, yes she sleeps inside. I bought her a small pair of steps to get up on the (her couch) that we now call her bed, I had to get another for company she likes her space. If you would like to see some pictures of her, please feel free to check out my album "Animals" she is a very loyal friend. You would be amazed just how intelligent she is, they are very quick learners.

Peace & Piggy Love

Oh, just look at that baby! I don't care if she might have fallen off a truck that belonged to the local "rare Tamworth" pig breeder. He obviously wasn't taking care of her and should not be trying to claim her. What would he do with her? Make her the family pet? I really doubt it. Pigs are so intelligent, we really ought to outlaw eating them worlwide.

Nice story, hope she is provided with a home where she will live a very long and happy life.
