This Little Piglet Grew Into A Huge, Adorable Piggie Pal.

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.

These pig parents were shocked, but were also dedicated to keeping the cutie, named Esther. She quickly became a beloved member of the family.

When they first adopted her, Esther weighted a petite 3 pounds.

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.
