Potbellied pig
Arrived: 2017-07-30

Cupcake is the larger of the two pigs, although Princess is definitely the boss. :) Cupcake was raised from a baby by her former owner and is well socialized.


Cupcake loves belly rubs and grazing in the big pasture with the sheep and llamas!

About Cupcake

Cupcake and Princess are two potbellied pigs who originally started boarding at Heartland, but will now remain part of Heartland's forever family. 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 that Cupcake and Princess are in a safe and loving place, and can remain together!
