    Default Pillow the Piglet also gets a second chance.

    Piglet named Pillow rescued by dogs home who saw she was being sold for meat

    Animal lovers – sit down.

    This story contains a tiny piglet, a house full of dogs and a happy ending (so now is your chance to get the tissues).

    Yes, last month a piglet – who was in danger of being put down – was rescued and placed into foster care at a house in Sydney.

    According to her foster parents, her entire family were intended to be sold off for meat.

    But luckily for Pillow, this animal-loving household were not about to let that happen.

    Eventually she will grow into a large pig (Picture: Instagram/lifeofpikelet)


    In a series of images posted on Facebook, it has become massively apparent that the little pig has settled into her new home quickly… alongside a number of dogs and cats.

    In one image she is seen snuggled between an English Staffordshire Bull Terrier and a Boxer dog.

    And honestly, she couldn’t look happier.

    On the page, which is called Life of Pikelet – and is run from the point-of-view of one of the dogs in the foster home, Pillow has become a star.

    Her current best friends include Greyhound puppies Pretzel and Pringle.

    Oh, and she’s obsessed with another dog named Patty Cakes too.

    In a post on the page, Pikelet the dog – who also has his own Instagram – said: ‘Helping just one little piglet doesn’t feel like enough, but it was the best my parents could do at such short notice.

    ‘Lots of guidance and information were given in hopes that the farmer was able to seek more safety for the remaining pig family. I’m trying not to think too much about it.

    ‘Pillow is small but one day in the not too distant future she’ll be bigger than big. Her breed is a large ‘white’ pig.’

    Now, the family are trying to find Pillow a permanent home.

    They are specifically looking for someone with a hobby farm as they will not sell her for meat.

    They are very friendly animals as well, and make great pets.

    We had a piggy at the shelter one time, Petunia. She was so frigging adorable, would roll over for belly rubs and close her little eyes with happiness.

    They are also highly intelligent.

    Now I want to watch "Babe" again. For the umpteenth time.
