My Story

Born in Richmond, I was adopted by The Riddle Family in Winchester, VA where I was trained and certified by the American Mini Pig Association as a pet therapy pig!

I’m a pig who loves my family and was trained to be a member of the therapy pig program administered by the American Mini Pig Association. This means that I can visit schools, hospitals, nursing homes, libraries, and other public places as a volunteer to provide therapy to others with comfort, affection, and attention.

To earn this certification I had to learn a bunch of tricks, including coming to my name, sit, stay, leave it, walking on a leash, gentle treat taking, and handling. My family also taught me many more tricks including shake, give a kiss, shut the door (I push a door closed), play piano (I play a little piano with my snout), and much more.

If interested, you can read more about the AMPA Therapy Pig program.
