My name is Pepper. Iâm a 1 year old neutered(male), friendly pig who wants to go go go! I weigh 45lbs currently and will weigh more as I grow to approx 75lbs. Let me say first that I am an indoor pet that likes some outdoor time. I like to root around and do zoomies because I am young & energetic. I flip over my water dish a lot because I think itâs fun! When Iâm bored I like to get into things so itâs good to always keep an eye on me when Iâm out to play and learn, using my food for teachable moments or enrichment with my rooting mat or balls and toys is a great way to keep me properly amused. Otherwise if I donât have interactive things to occupy my time, I may take off the trim in the hall or chew on the carpet or flip over the garbage can ?. I donât know any better because Iâm a pig. Iâm sensitive so there is no need to yell at me, simply give me something to do ?. Iâm crate trained and when your not able to watch me itâs a good idea to have me rest in there. Iâm sort of potty trained, meaning if you designate a spot Iâll go there and learn over time that thatâs the spot I to go on using pee pads. Making me a giant litter box wouldnât be a bad idea, unless there is easy access to going outside; you can work on teaching me that. I love to sun bathe, and get belly scratches! I know how to sit, sit pretty and turn. I love the game chase too. If you think youâd be a good home for me please let us know. You can come visit and meet me; a home visit is required. Should you ever need to go away on vacation I am good at boarding at my fosterâs business (Cody Cozyâs Pals in Colonie) anytime! Serious inquiries only. To apply: www.heartsherd.com/forms

Meet JADE! She was adopted by our rescue a few years ago but sadly her owner passed away. She was in such a wonderful home and now she resides at a boarding facility. She is a sweet girl however she prefers to be the diva dog of the household so we want to find a home where she is the only dog. She is not aggressive to dogs that she encounters in the community! We are unsure how she will do with cats but a meet and greet can be done. Also, she will do best in a home with teens and older. Please ask us how to make Jade a part of your home.
