Follow The Adventures Of Ziggy, The Not-So-Little Pet Piggy
"Living with a pig is crazy," says Jay Yontz. Jay and his girlfriend Kristin Hartness are pet-parents to a friendly pig named Ziggy—and there are plenty of crazy things about this little family's story!
Kristin adopted Ziggy when she was living in the Virgin Islands and dating Jay. In the ad that Kristin answered, Ziggy was described as a teacup pig who would grow to about 20 pounds. Well, fast-forward to Ziggy as an adult pig. He weighs 250 pounds!
Kristin and Jay don't mind having a full-sized pig; they say having Ziggy is kind of like having a dog! But their pet pig made finding an apartment when they left the Virgin Islands a major struggle: there aren't a lot of apartment buildings that allow for this type of furry friend. According to Kirstin, "giving up Ziggy was never an option." So she and Jay decided to hit the road with Ziggy in tow.
Back in the states, the couple bought a motorhome. It accommodates Ziggy, and it allows Kristin and Jay to "live everywhere," as Jay describes it. Sure sounds like a perfect situation for this adventurous couple, who met on a destination island and adopted a pig!
