Pinkpigletpuppy.org details that he traveled to Connecticut in March of 2017 to be taken in by a foster family who say he was a 1-pound screaming baby.

As things would have it, his foster home became his forever home when they adopted Piglet in May of 2017. 

After months of screaming and severe separation anxiety, Piglet finally got into a routine snuggling in his dad’s arms, playing with his dog pack siblings and taking walks down the street.
