ROCK COUNTY — The pig that the Rock County Sheriff's Office was trying to find a home for now has new siblings and a family who has fallen in love with him, according to a Facebook post.
Mr. Pig is 6-months-old and weighs 67 pounds. He was living in a foster home with a dog. He prefers to have companionship all the time and can be destructive when left alone.
Here are five facts about pigs:
- Pigs are the third smartest animal following dolphins and chimpanzees.
- Pigs are hypoallergenic.
- Pigs wallow and bathe in water or mud to cool down because they don't sweat.
- Pigs have been tested and found to be smarter than 3- to 5-year-old children.
- The pig represents fortune, honesty, happiness and virility in the Chinese zodiac.
