*Bonded with Merlin*

Hi Fam,
My name is Oreo! I am bonded with my buddy Merlin like a pair of chopsticks. I am the more timid one, so it might take some time for me to warm up to you. However, I am a very friendly pig once you get to know me.  

I feel safest when I’m in my hidey with Merlin, so please approach me calmly when I come out, as I startle easily.  

Some of my favorite foods are any herb, kale, lettuce, celery, and loads of timothy hay. I am a bit of a couch potato and love just hanging out in my hidey. I love being around family activities and don’t mind too much noise. I’ve been in families with rabbits and dogs. I am ok with being in the same room as them, but please don’t put us in direct contact with each other. I've also been with small kids, which I definitely need supervision with when interacting with them. Otherwise, we get along well with everyone!

As much as I love my buddy Merlin, he can sometimes be a little rough with me, especially when he’s anxious. Although I am usually ok with him re-asserting his dominance, you may occasionally see me avoid him and vocalize my disapproval. If this happens, please intervene to allow me to recuperate.

Can’t wait to meet you!

Popcorning away,


Because I'm part of a bonded pair, I need to be adopted with my friend Merlin.  Click here to learn more about him!
