the blue eyed pig
Henry was one of the trio that came to us in February 2016 after living a life of abuse and neglect.
Although extremely timid and not wanting to be touched, Henry's blue eyes shine through and touch everybody who sees him. He's very curious, and wants to know what everyone smells like, even if from afar. Henry reminds us of the amazing resilience of these animals.
Terrified for months, Henry will now allow me to walk past him, and will even drink out of the water bowl while I'm holding it! Around here, we don't push animals to be something they're not ready to be. Through time, patience and much love, Henry, much like his father Papa and brother Davy, have become an integral part of our sanctuary. And although we can't hug them and cuddle them and rub their bellies, we can certainly sit beside them and take in the strength and humility they have shown us.
