About Us
Tillie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tillie
Age: Ten weeks old
Gender: Female
Kind: Potbelly Pig
Home: Bangor, Maine, USA
   This is Tillie and she now belongs to Joe and Darlene W. She is ten weeks old and is a miniature potbelly pig. I am one of the breeders that worked with Tillie until she was old enough to be shipped to her new parents. As you can see by the picture, she is quite a ham (no pun intended). Darlene and Joe tell me that she is a "daddy's girl" and wants to stay by his side or in his lap the majority of the time. Both while I had her, and while she has been with Joe and Darlene, I am left wondering if she knows she is a pig. She is very affectionate and of course very smart. This picture was her first day outside since she was old enough to leave her mother.

    She is enjoying her new home She was shipped from Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Bangor, Maine to her new home and is already spoiled beyond belief. I just had to nominate Tillie. She is beautiful and full of spunk and has made a wonderful addition to her new family. They keep in touch with me and send me pictures every week. I have four pet potbellies myself, one of which is the brother of Tillie. Tillie is a great little pig!
