From top, Despite being no beauty, this kunekune pig has a new chance at life after he was adopted from the Silverdale Animal Shelter. New owners Brenda and John Rosamond say Hogwart has settled in well to his new home.
You might think this is a face that only a mother could love, but elderly kunekune pig Hogwart’s bad teeth and hairy chin won the heart of a Rodney resident, who spotted his photo on Auckland Council’s Silverdale Animal Shelter’s Facebook page.
Hogwart had been at the shelter for almost two months, after he was found wandering on a main road in Dairy Flat in November.
Hogwart moved to his new Kumeu home on January 22. With a passion for scraps, snoozing and a good chin scratch, he is settling in and has other pigs for company.
