A happy ending for Billie Jean

Posted in Adoptions at 12:05 pm by Jenn

Congratulations to Billie Jean for finding her forever home!  Billie Jean was left at a local animal shelter shortly beforeBillie & Springer Christmas (very near Frazier and Amelia).   She was initially very skittish and terrified of us, but once settled down became a favorite in her foster home.  She was athletic and spry, and was always leaping into hayracks and on top of her pigloo.

Springer had recently lost his little sow-wife, Maggie.  Maggie and Springer had been together for several years, and her loss had left him heartbroken.  When he met Billie Jean, he seemed to perk up immediately.  He was excited and thrilled to show her all of his fantastic hiding spots and running tunnels.

Bob and Sue, her new mom and dad, reported that she spent about a week pretty scared of the new setup — they’ve got a free-range piggie habitat — but once she settled in, she was running and leaping like an Olympic champion.  Thanks to repeat adopters Bob and Sue for offering this little girl a place to finally call her own with a big manly boar like Springer to keep her company.

    How lovely to hear that Billy Jean has found love with Springer with an agility track provided by Bob and Sue. She is truly a lucky piggie-girl!

    Our mountain clan wishes them all good things!
