When Derek Walter and Steve Jenkins from Toronto, Canada, adopted a miniature pig two years ago, things didn't exactly go as expected. They were prepared for the tiny porker to plump up to a possible 70 pounds, but she had surpassed that 8 months into pig parenthood by hundreds of pounds.
When they first adopted her, Esther weighted a petite 3 pounds.
She grew a bit too big for their home...
She now weighs in at 625 pounds.
She still fits right in with the rest of the family!
With the help of an Indiegogo campaign, they received $440,000 in donations to move with Esther to a farm.
The farm is a sanctuary for others like Esther who were abandoned and in need of a good home.
She also inspired them to change their eating habits and become vegans.
