In a world where pigs are more often ‘processed’ for their flesh than protected for their friendship, this little piglet, named Dorothy, would have good reason to be wary of strangers. But it was only by trusting the couple who took her in during her time of need that Dorothy found not only new friends — but a new life.
Dorothy appears to be only a few weeks old. But even so, if she were on a commercial piggery, she would only have a few months of life left. By about 4 months of age she would be trucked away — her last moments on earth spent inside a facility that few people would ever wish to set foot inside. But thankfully, the efforts of one caring individual spared her such a fate.
