Cromwell, the Pet of the Day
Name: Cromwell
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Vietnamese Potbelly Pig
Home: Waverly, Nebraska, USA
   This is Cromwell, my Vietnamese Potbelly Pig. My husband and I have four dogs, five cats and hundreds of gallons of fish (all indoors and pampered). Each is a rescue, so when we went looking for a pig, it had to be a rescue as well. Cromzy had been bred in Missouri, a neighboring state, but sold to someone on the east coast. When it didn't work out, he went to Ross Mill Farms to lose some heft and find his forever home. Through the hard work of Susan Armstrong, at Ross Mill Farms, and the adoption programs at Pig Placement, they helped us identify the perfect pig for our household. Susan helped us to define what we wanted in a pig, helped educate us on pig parenting and connected us with his breeder to learn more about his "family."

    In April, I drove from Nebraska to Bucks County, PA to pick up Cromwell. He's been a dream and the sweetest little pig anyone could ask for. We are really blessed to have found each other! Cromwell has found his forever home with us!
