Artie was rescued as a baby by a pot-bellied pig organization. He was then adopted by a couple in Brooklyn who took good care of him and he lived in their brownstone with a large backyard for two years. Yet, the suburban environment was still not ideal for a pig and he needed more space and other pig friends. He found his way to Tamerlaine in April 2015 and now is best buds with rescued pig Clara. He remains a lap pig, even at 250 pounds!
