About Ronnie and Reggie

This wonderful brother and sister pair would make any lucky home complete. It is with great sorrow that their family are having to part with them due to health issues forcing a property downsize. They would really love to have regular updates and they are happy to be on hand post-adoption to provide any help that Ronnie and Reggie’s new home might need.

Ronnie, the larger of the two, is very protective of her baby brother. Reggie was the runt of the litter and big sis Ronnie was the one to step in with all their litter mates to make sure that timid Reggie got his fair share of the food.

This trend has continued into their adult lives with Ronnie being very much the boss, but in a sweet, maternal way. She will boot Reggie out of their bedroom when fresh straw is added, only allowing him back in when things have been arranged correctly. Little Reggie will stand around looking very sorry for himself at these moments. But she will also lick him and fuss over him and generally make sure he is always okay, which Reggie absolutely loves.

They are both very loving and friendly. Ronnie adores strokes on the head and along her side, while Reggie will always flop for full-blown belly rubs and try to get into your lap for a big old cuddle. They also love to have room for a run and frolic, with little Reggie being the faster of the two.

Both piggies love to sunbathe and will need suitable sunscreen applied on very hot sunny days. Ronnie will take a lovely mud bath to cool down, but precious Reggie prefers to keep his beautiful coat clean so he will need access to shade throughout the day.

There is so much more we could tell you about them and their funny ways. But, for now, we will just say if you think you can offer them a home and would like to know more, please get in touch.

We’d love to find a new home close to their current location, but if you can offer them the perfect home further away we would still love to hear from you!

Apply to Adopt

Please note, as well as a completed adoption application form we require several good quality photographs of the areas in which the pigs would live. You should include photographs that give a good idea of the size of the space available, the type and features of the terrain, all shelters that would be accessible by the pigs and the type of containment you will be using (stock-proof fencing, electrical fencing, walls etc.)

You can submit these photographs by emailing us directly at rescue@everypig.org

A member of our team will be in touch.
