Fearing for her safety, the owner of the farm, Roland Adam, brought her to his pup, Katjinga, to see if she would take care of her.He told the Daily Mail:

She had just finished with a litter of her own, who are now 10 months, so I thought there was a chance she might take on the duties of looking after her. Katjinga is the best mother you can imagine. She immediately fell in love with the piggy. Straight away she started to clean it like it was one of her own puppies.
