STRATHAM,NEWHAMPSHI­RE: A pot-bel­lied pig that sur­vived a butcher and an es­cape from an adop­tive home is get­ting a new fam­ily.

The three-year-old pig named Missy first ar­rived at the New Hamp­shire So­ci­ety for the Pre­ven­tion of Cru­elty to An­i­mals in Fe­bru­ary.

Missy’s fam­ily could re­port­edly no longer take care of her, and she had even ended up with a butcher at some point.

In April, a Mas­sachusetts fam­ily with other pigs adopted her, but the adop­tion didn’t work out and she ran away. She re­turned to the Stratham shel­ter af­ter a week.

The shel­ter’s adop­tion coun­selor said on Tues­day that a New Jersey fam­ily with two pigs saw an on­line post­ing for her through a site called the Pig Place­ment Net­work.

They adopted her last week.

The coun­selor told them, “You’ve made my year!”
