Rescue Pig Thinks She Is A Puppy, So She Does Everything Just Like Her Canine Siblings

Meet Olive the piglet; she believes she’s a puppy! “She behaves as though she is one of the dogs,” piggie’s ‘mom’ Alissa said. “She spends every hour of the day with them, plays with them like a dog, she naps with them. If the dogs run at the gate to bark at something in the street, she races with them.”

Before Olive’s ‘parents,’ Alissa and Nick Childsrescued her, they already had four dogs and soon, a human baby on its way. They were a bit concerned at first as to how Olive would get on with their French bulldog Lola.  They had no idea the two would become best friends. ”Lola took the role of Olive’s adopted Mum & it was so beautiful to see,” Alissa wrote on her website.

Alissa likes to capture the beautiful moments of her extended and put it on Instagram. She also likes to throw parties for them, dress her pets in cute little outifts, and says she might get a miniature donkey in the future.

”I’ve always wanted a pet pig! We moved to acreage a couple of years ago, and it became a possibility,” Alissa said. ”I had never met a pet pig before we got Olive, so it was a somewhat risky leap of faith!”
