"A man who lived in the city had purchased her as a 'teacup pig,'" Terry Cummings, director of Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary in Poolesville, Maryland, wrote. "[He] realized when she grew so rapidly that she was going to be much larger."
So, recently, when the man spotted animal control officers in his area, he brought his pig out and gave her away. "He handed her over to animal control when they were investigating another call in his neighborhood, and told them he had named her 'Chris P. Bacon,' and didn’t want her anymore," Cummings wrote.
Luckily, there were people out there who wanted the pig, just as she was. Cummings agreed to give the little pig a forever home at Poplar Spring — where she would meet new friends and never outgrow her home. That's when she was renamed Dani.
