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:

  1. Pigs are the third smartest animal following dolphins and chimpanzees.
  2. Pigs are hypoallergenic.
  3. Pigs wallow and bathe in water or mud to cool down because they don't sweat.
  4. Pigs have been tested and found to be smarter than 3- to 5-year-old children.
  5. The pig represents fortune, honesty, happiness and virility in the Chinese zodiac.
