It was a pretty tough decision to make. It takes a lot of work. It’s a full-time job, looking after a disabled baby. But it’s so cute and we couldn’t deliver it at that time.
Piglet now lives with 6 other puppies, it took a while for him to adjust to life there, even Melissa says the first month he couldn’t leave the house because Piglet was so anxious.
From the start this puppy has been destined to do great things, he is an inspiration to many, especially children.
With the support of a third-grade teacher in Plainville, Massachusetts, Piglet helps little ones overcome their differences and the challenges they face.
The puppy is part of the lessons as a model to face every day, the students admire him, they even sent his family beautiful hand-drawn cards with messages to Piglet.
Additionally, the Piglet story aims to encourage neutering of cats and dogs, as well as inspire others to adopt pets with special needs.
Other classes in Alabama, Connecticut, Japan and Australia are now promoters of the Piglet Mindset Outreach program.
