A day in the life of a shelter pig

Chances are, if you’ve visited the GBHS lately, you’ve met Sunny. Sunny is a 1 year-old potbelly pig who is available for adoption- and she has definitely stolen our hearts and the hearts of our shelter visitors!

Ever wondered what a day in the life of a potbelly pig is like? Well, you’re about to find out…

8:00 a.m. – The GBHS staff and volunteers arrive, and I get taken for my first walk of the day. HOORAY! I am completely house-trained, so regular walks are a MUST to keep me on schedule. I wear a pretty pink harness and walk just like a dog, or so I’m told.

8:30 a.m. – My walk is over, and now it’s time to EAT. It’s my favorite thing. Duh, I’m a pig. Get it?

9:00 a.m. – I’m stuffed, so a nap is in order. A girl’s gotta get her beauty rest, right?

10:15 a.m. – I wake up and decide it’s time for another walk. I’ve got everybody here wrapped around my little hoof, so they love to take me!

11:30 a.m. – Snack time! I’m allowed 2 snacks per day, in addition to my daily meals. Here I am eating one of my favorite snacks, POPCORN! I keep asking for more, but it’s not working so far. Note to self: must get dogs to teach me how to beg.

12:30 p.m. – Play time on the yard! I will run around the yard off my leash for a few seconds at turbo speed- but then I like to slow down and root around with my snout. On those extra hot days, I love to get in the baby pool! That cold water feels SO good.

1:30 p.m. – Visiting with my faithful fans. It’s hard being this cute sometimes. Even though I’m a staff, volunteer, and visitor favorite, I would LOVE to find my forever home soon!

3:30 p.m. – Rooting in one of my many blankets. It’s what we pigs do best.

4:00 p.m. – CHOW TIME! Dinner is served.

4:30 p.m. – My final walk of the day- I’ll take my time on this one. Gotta stop and smell… uh… eat… the clover!

Do you like what you see? I am a loving girl with lots of personality who would love to find a home just as wonderful as I am! Please call 205-942-1211 ext. 200 if you are interested in adopting me!
