Potbellied pig
Arrived: 2017-07-30

Cupcake was raised from a baby by her former owner and enjoys socializing with people. She's sweet, curious and easygoing.


Cupcake loves belly rubs, grazing in the pasture, and snuggling in the straw with her pig friends.

About Cupcake

Cupcake originally started boarding at Heartland before becoming a forever part of the Heartland family. She arrived with her sister Princess, who sadly passed away in 2022. Their owner was in a homeless shelter for two months after a domestic violence incident, and then placed in a small apartment where pigs obviously aren't allowed. It has been a very difficult and sad situation for their owner, but we are thankful we could keep Cupcake and Princess together in a safe space. Cupcake is a regular favorite in Heartland's mini pig crowd - you'll often find her outside grazing with her friends or taking a nap in a shady mud spot.
