Instead of euthanizing a pig with a tremor, the girl decided to save him and take him home

There are many stories about when even seemingly completely hopeless animals found a home and salvation. And this Floppy pig story is one of them.
Meet Floppy. He was born on January 18, 2020 with shaking head syndrome (in fact, this is a tremor that cannot be controlled) in a litter of nine healthy piglets
His journey into this world was very difficult from the very beginning, when he just took his first breath.
According to Chelsea Vining, who lives in West Virginia and owns Floppy, the piglet could not even feed on its own from its mother, as did his brothers and sisters and could not really walk.
“The sister of the husband, on whose farm Floppy was born, took him to the vet, and he said it was the worst case in his practice. The veterinarian recommended euthanasia because the piglet probably won't live longer than a week, ”Chelsea said.
"None of us liked the idea of being put to sleep, so my husband and I were determined to let this little pig live its life in love and care."
“My husband and I took Floppy to our house (we don't live on a farm) and bottle-fed him every three hours while he was very tiny”
“Our plans were to leave the piglet, and then, when he gets stronger and feels better, take him to a shelter, where he will be looked after by professionals. However, when it came time to part, we realized that Floppy won our hearts, and we cannot let him go. "
“Now he is a domesticated one and a half year old pig that has its own room. As you already understood, the veterinarian's predictions did not come true, and with Floppy everything is just fine. "
"The tremor, by the way, is almost gone, except when our pet is agitated or worried."
“Floppy is the most ordinary big pig (not mini), so now it weighs about 226 kg. But he is a gentle giant and loves to communicate with people "
Chelsea shared that a special bond has formed between her and Floppy, which is growing stronger every day! And it's easy to believe in, you just have to look into these kind piggy eyes, filled with love and gratitude for your salvation.
