Oscar was rooting his previous owners horse pasture and the holes were deep enough to break a leg if a horse should trip in a hole. So, Oscar was listed on Craigslist as a result of the rooting and if he didn't sell he was headed for auction. Either option would have headed him for slaughter. But, fate intervened and he was brought to Sunrise to live the life of a healthy and happy pig. Oscar is a mule foot hog. They are smaller than the traditional hog. They call them mule foot because of their distinctive solid, non-cloven hoof that looks like the hoof of a mule. Oscar is a lovable pig that enjoys attention, belly rubs and treats and will even sit for them.
