About Us
Gus, the Pet of the Day
Name: Gus
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Pot Belly Pig
Home: Shickshinny, Pennslvania, USA
   This is our Pot Belly Pig Gus. He is a year and a half old and he is like a son to us. We adopted him last February and he is a joy to have around. He sleeps with my husband and I. At first he slept at the bottom of the bed but he worked his way up and now sleeps right in between us. He lays on the couch and watches television with us and loves attention.

    Gus is well-behaved, too. When I walk around the yard with him and he gets too far away from me, all I have to do is yell "Where's Mamma's pig?" and he comes running to me. Gus is very smart and can learn tricks quickly. He is about 80 pounds. and even though pot belly pigs do not usually like to be picked up, he lets my husband carry him!
