The photo above shows Patricia when she first arrived at the sanctuary back in September. With the help of her wheelchair, she's able to walk and even run around with the other animals.
"Patricia has been a very happy little pig since she came to the shrine ... always curious and cheerful," Santuario Gaia told The Dodo. "Her disability does not prevent her from having as normal a life as possible." Although tests have shown that Patricia's spinal cord damage is most likely irreversible, the sanctuary goes to great lengths to allow her the same joys of life that other pigs experience.
"Now she goes out every day with her wheelchair and handles it very well," Santuario Gaia continued. "She has learned to drive it without problem through the fields and plays with another little pig [at the sanctuary], Javi."
