Personality: Who could say no to this piglet? Roxy Nikita was a little shy at first but opened up quickly with a few treats. She has the sweetest, cutest shuffle'n'snort and an adorable under-bite to bat. She did well with all handling, despite likely painful neck wounds. We're swooning over this piggy doll and hoping she finds the rescue she needs to appropriately treat her wounds, shabby skin, and wonky teeth.
