Pigs

Our lovable pigs are the primary reason we started Piggins and Banks.

Mary Piggins

Vietnamese Potbelly Pig
Adopted
1 year old

One of the namesakes of Piggins and Banks, Mary Piggins is a certified Therapy Pet Pig by the American Mini Pig Association and also an internet celebrity. As a certified therapy pet pig she is able to volunteer at public organizations, retirement homes, schools, etc. where she can visit and bring smiles to those needing a good cheering up.

Mr. Piggy Banks

Painted Mini / Potbelly Mix Pig
Rescued
9 months old

Mr. Banks is also training to be a Therapy Pet Pig (and will be certified once he is one year old). We rescued him from a farm on the Eastern Shore of Maryland that was breeding pigs for pets and meat. Part of Mr. Banks’ left ear and tail are docked signifying he would have been slaughtered if we had not taken him in.

Mick

Kune Kune Pig
Adopted
8 years old

Mick is the biggest pig here at Piggins and Banks, partly because of his type of breed which falls on the large side (Kune Kune). He may look intimidating with his dark color and tusks, but he is a gentle giant and loves any attention and a good ear scratch.

Rosie

Potbelly Pig
Adopted
9 years old

Rosie is the first pig that the Riddle Family ever took in opening the door for them to learn how smart and special pigs are. She is such a sweetheart and loves to get her belly rubbed.

Tuck

Potbelly Pig
Adopted
9 years old

Tuck came from the same farm as Rosie, so they are practically brother and sister and can always be found close to one another. He was the second pig Aaron and Christie Riddle ever owned. He has a pleasant demeanor and also loves a good belly rub.

Zeus

Potbelly Pig
Rescued October 23, 2020
7 months old

Zeus (twin brother to Bert) was advertised as a free pig to be used as a pet or meat in the Winchester, VA area. We quickly rescued him and have given him a home here. He is the more bold and brave one of the brother pigs, and has a constantly inquisitive personality. (Learn more about his history: We Have Rescued Two New Piglets from Possible Death)

Bert

Potbelly Pig
Rescued October 23, 2020
7 months old

Bert (twin brother to Zeus) was advertised as a free pig to be used as a pet or meat in the Winchester, VA area. We quickly rescued him and have given him a home here. Bert is more passive and shy than his brother, but just as sweet. (Learn more about his history: We Have Rescued Two New Piglets from Possible Death)

Tyrion

Juliana Pig
Rescued November 1, 2020
6 years old

Tyrion came to us from Brooklyn Park, MD. His family gave him a wonderful home for six years which shows when you see how great of shape Tyrion is in. However he outgrew their apartment living space and was beginning to show signs of aggression towards their new baby. Since coming to Piggins and Banks he has become one of the lead pigs, and is in heaven with lots of room to run, root, and socialize.

Dude

Potbelly Pig
Rescued November 6, 2020
10 months old

You could say a little bit of destiny brought Dude (or The Dude as we like to call him) to Piggins and Banks. You see, he is from Pasadena, MD where two of our founding team members grew up (Aaron and Joshua Riddle). He is one of the absolutely sweetest pigs you will ever meet. His owner felt he would be happier in the country amongst other pigs rather than stuck in a community without a friend. We love having Dude here with us! (Learn more about his history: Welcome Dude the Pig from Pasadena, MD)

Jimmy

Potbelly Pig
Rescued November 15, 2020
1 year old

There is always someone that likes to push the boundaries and rules in any group, and that would be Jimmy. He is one of the sweetest most happy pigs we have ever met, but he uses that sweetness to distract you so he can get into some playful mischief such as pushing gates open and knocking down food containers. No matter because we love him anyway! (Learn more about his history: From Walkersville, MD: It’s Jimmy the Pig!)

Charlotte

Potbelly Pig
Rescued November 29, 2020
12 months old

Charlotte is an absolute sweetheart and very kind natured. Since we rescued her from a location where she was kept with two other male pigs, we are currently waiting to see if she is pregnant. She has what we refer to as a “Godzilla monster squeal” when she is hungry. You can hear it all the way on the other side of the property! (Learn more about her history: The Three Little Pigs Come to Piggins and Banks)

Babe

Potbelly Pig
Rescued November 29, 2020
11 months old

Babe (brother to Wilbur) is a go-getter. He is more shy than his brother, but has a lot of energy. As you can see in the photo above, he is particularly fond of pumpkin. Notice how Babe’s nose has a gap where the black coloring is. It was pointed out to us by one of our donors that it looks like a tiny French mustache! (Learn more about his history: The Three Little Pigs Come to Piggins and Banks)

Wilbur

Potbelly Pig
Rescued November 29, 2020
11 months old

Wilbur (brother to Babe) is the more outgoing of the two brothers. He is very inquisitive and will come up to greet you when entering his pen. How can you tell him and his brother Babe apart? Wilbur has the black all along the top of his nose! (Learn more about his history: The Three Little Pigs Come to Piggins and Banks)

Rosita

Potbelly Pig
Rescued December 13, 2020
10 months old

Rosita is an incredible sweet and gentle pig. She is calm, quiet, and her coloring looks like that of a little field mouse. She came to live with us from the New Jersey / New York area because her family was not allowed to have pet pigs in their community. (Learn more about her history: Rosita from New Jersey Joins the Piggins and Banks Family)

Zelda

Potbelly Pig
Rescued January 10, 2021
5 years old

Zelda came to live with us thanks to the Harford County Humane Society in Maryland. She is a big girl…but very sweet and gentle. She loves to be pet and has a slow, but steady, approach to her day’s activities. When taken in by the Humane Society she was very overweight, but is already starting to lose some pounds after being given a nice outdoor area to root and roam around in.

Hulk

Potbelly / Mixed Breed Pig
Rescued January 10, 2021
2 years old

Hulk came to live with us thanks to the Harford County Humane Society in Maryland. He is an un-neutered male but is the absolute sweetest boy pig we have ever met. He is a talker and loves to oink and chirp when you enter his pen. He takes treats gently and is a big ole teddy bear.

Onyx

Mixed Breed Pig
Rescued January 19, 2021
12 months old

Onyx was brought to Piggins and Banks by Sussex County Animal Services in the Richmond area with his brother Bruce. He is a large, gentle pig. His thick black fur is so soft. He is friendlier than Bruce and will come right up to you for a treat and a scratch on the head. (Learn more about his history: Sussex County Animal Services Brings Three Pigs to Piggins and Banks)

Fern

Potbelly Pig
Rescued January 19, 2021
5 months old

Fern was brought to Piggins and Banks by Sussex County Animal Services in the Richmond area as a bonus pig rescue (she tagged along the trip with Bruce and Onyx). She is a sweet piglet who took right to the routine at Piggins and Banks of knowing when mealtimes are and how to get on our good side for a treat! (Learn more about her history: Sussex County Animal Services Brings Three Pigs to Piggins and Banks)

Gloria

Potbelly Pig
Rescued January 24, 2021
13 months old

Gloria was captured in the wild by a good samaritan after escaping a neglect situation. She is a true survivor and is fortunate to have a loving forever home here. While her body shows many scars and blemishes from her horrible past, she has lost much of her shyness from when we first welcomed her and is now a very friendly pig. (Learn more about her history: Escape Pig Given Second Chance by Piggins and Banks Pig Sanctuary)

Porky

Porky

Potbelly Pig
Rescued January 30, 2021
3 years old

Porky came to us from a loving family that could no longer keep him due to housing requirements from their landlord. He is a very large pig but a gentle soul that likes to take it easy and enjoy the relaxed piggy lifestyle. (Learn more about his history: Porky the Pig Finds a New Home at Piggins and Banks)

In Memoriam

We remember those pigs that we have lost over the years and know they had a wonderful life at Piggins and Banks.

Lana

Potbelly Pig
Rescued
5/1/2003 – 2/3/2021

Lana was a breeder pig from Florida where they sold her babies as “teacup pigs”. She was abused until rescued by Ross Mill Farm and adopted to a family in Virginia that could no longer keep her after a death in the family. We took her in as a pet in 2012 and she lived out her later years surrounded by pig friends and was one of the four original pigs that came to Piggins and Banks when founded in 2020.
