Meet Winston - bought as a novelty pet for the children to play with but he wasn't house trained so he lived in a cage with barely enough room to turn around. Their dogs all went to the shelter. Now he must go. What were they thinking???
Today Winston frolics in the house, happy-go-lucky without a care in the world.
Winston's friend Charlie the dog
Charlie and his brothers and sisters were orphaned at 6 days of age. They were then cared for in a loving foster home before coming to the sanctuary to be adopted into lifetime homes.
When we first met Charlie we knew he had to stay. Charlie loves pigs, and Winston the piglet and Charlie the puppy played together, slept together and would have eaten together except Winston is a pig and therefore obsessed with food.
As Charlie grew he left his piglet friend to hang out with the big dogs and Winston soon bonded with piglets Lola and Pickles.
Yet.. every once in a while the two of them will leave everyone else and snuggle tight together just like best friends who are old dear friends.
