Her ears were dripping with blood from dog attacks
Janice came to us in 2020 from a home in Clayton, NC where she was living in a fenced-in yard with aggressive dogs who had started attacking her. This situation is quite common, actually. As often happens with dogs living with pigs, even though things may start off with everyone getting along and even playing together, dogs can soon start attacking until the pig is permanently mamed (like our sweet Penny Lane) or even killed. This is the case with Janice and her dog buddies - even though things were OK at first, soon the dogs were biting down on her ears so hard that they started to split and bleed. We can't imagine the terror and pain she must have experienced.
Fortunately, the family realized the seriousness of the situation before it became fatal for poor Janice. When they reached out, we just knew we had to rescue this baby. We had to remove her from the situation immediately.
Soulful, playful, and such a joy
Today Janice's ears have completely healed, although you can still see the rips and scars left over from her dog-attack ordeal. She has fully integrated into the herd, and she's the sweetest dollbaby you've ever seen. Her personality is a bit unusual and eccentric, but that's what makes her so special. She's quite demanding at feeding time, and if you hold up food in front of her, you may even see her stand on her back legs and beg for it. She sometimes even sits for treats.
She's a soulful pig who will look straight into your eyes when you're speaking to her. And if you listen hard, she speaks right back in her little piggie way. We love our adorable Janice!
