Frank is the cutest piglet!  He was the runt of the litter, but has not let that limit him!  He is very smart and energetic, and very food motivated, but also quite a sensitive piggy.  He is quite vocal and will talk to you with his adorable squeeky pig sounds.  He uses his litter box 90% of the time, but still likes to tinkle sometimes while he drinks!  So putting the water where he HAS to step into the litter box to get it, really helps.  He would be easy to teach to potty outside as well.  His favorite snacks are carrots and apples, but he has never met a snack he hasn't liked!  Because he is so food motivated, he will be super easy to teach tricks to, especially using clicker training!  Frank is a sensitive guy and warms up to new people and new situations slowly, but he will climb all over you once he gets to know you.  He loves being scratched behind his jowels (cheeks).  He is crate-trained to the point that if you sprinkle food in his crate, he will readily walk right in and you can latch the door.  He does not freak out.  You can crate him at night or just give him a small area to call his.  He is easily transported in his crate this way, too.  Contact me today to learn more about adorable Frank!

Individuals interested in adopting a puppy are STRONGLY encouraged to download and read this FREE ebook. Even if you've raised puppies in the past, this is an invaluable resource to help make your new addition successful!

Please note that visual breed identification of companion animals has been proven to be unreliable, so for most of our animals we provide a best guess at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each of our animals as an individual and do our best to describe and place pets based on personality not breed label.

About Brother Wolf Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Brother Wolf Animal Rescue is known for their excellence in matching people with the best dog or cat that would suit their lifestyle. Today we are proud to have the largest NO-KILL shelter in Asheville. Brother Wolf Animal Rescue was established in 2006. We started off as a very small group of people, taking dogs and cats from gassing shelters in GA. We found wonderful homes for these animals but realized while we were saving these particular animals, we had a much bigger problem in our community that we needed to face. Perfectly healthy, highly adoptable animals in our community are being euthanized every day. Rescued pets are not broken or damaged goods. They are wonderful animals who have ended up homeless through no fault of their own.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our facility is located at 31 Glendale Avenue in Asheville, off Swannanoa River Rd, 1/2 mile from Lowe's. Open every day.

Our Adoption Process...

All adoptions will require a contract and discussions with one of our adoption counselors. Based on the needs of the particular animal, we reserve the right to require a home visit at the discretion of the adoption counselor. All our animals will be altered before adoption and up-to-date on standard vaccinations. We do collect an adoption fee.
