Ruby is a Kune Kune breed of pig originally from New Zealand and was being raised for meat. The runt of her litter, born in October 2016, she was sharing space with piglets weeks older and as they naturally competed for their mothers milk Ruby was becoming very weak and had large gashes to her face from the other pigs. She wasn't able to fend for herself and our founder knew she had to become part of Ruby’s future, to ensure she would be safe and never become food. The property owner agreed to sell Ruby and she was on her way to a new life. She lived inside initially and was bottle fed and spent many nights sleeping on our founders lap. She had to receive extensive medical treatment to get healthy again. But Ruby has thrived and shows everyone she meets just how incredible pigs truly are. She is intelligent, sweet, and LOVES to have her belly rubbed. Her best friend is Sam Shepard, a rescued German Shepherd and they spend most days digging holes and lounging together. The landscaping stands no chance with this dynamic duo.
