the first photo we saw of newborn hannah
In early 2020, Hannah Montana was rescued by our friend Allison who lives in, you guessed it, Montana! Hannah was born with deformed back feet and Allison discovered her on Craigslist where the breeder was advertising the tiny piglet to be snake food. After nearly 40 rescues recommended euthanasia, Ziggy's got the call about Hannah Montana. We specialize in special needs animals like her, and we knew we had to give her a chance. Our friend Dr. Davis flew Kristin all the way to Montana, and after that, we got to work to figure out what to do to give Hannah the best life possible. After she (very dramatically) rejected her wheelchair, Derrick Campana of Bionic Pets helped us craft custom shoes that would keep her feet protected and also give them a lift to reduce the pressure put on her spine. Hannah is a Berkshire pig, and though she has grown tons since she got here, she has lots of growing left to do. Kristin makes her a new pair of shoes every two weeks to keep us with her crazy growth. For now, Hannah Montana is truly one of the most adorable, happy, spunky pigs on the farm. She thinks EVERYBODY wants to be her friend (much to the annoyance of her roommate Lt. Dan), and she is constantly moving and keeping busy! We love her curly tail, freckled snout, and persevering attitude. This little girl is a fighter and we are prepared to fight for her too for the rest of her life here at Ziggy's!
