Piglet, a little pastel-colored puppy, didn’t have much luck at the beginning of his existence. Piglet was born blind and deaf in a household with 37 other dogs. However, once he was rescued from the hoarding situation and put in a wonderful foster family, things began to look better for him.

Piglet is currently living happily with his new owner Melissa Shapiro and is seen as a wonderful role model for children.
