Pets are undoubtedly a source of delight for people; everyone enjoys and applauds them for their smart jokes and antics. A little pig in Brazil did the same to the pride of his people, and numerous Internet users applauded him for his talent and kindness.
Tiago Henrique da Silva, 32, and his wife Jessica reside in Votorantim, Sao Paolo. Tiago has always wished to own a pet pig, but he hasn’t been able to make that dream come true. They thought it was the ideal moment to realize that goal in 2019 when they established a barbershop, and they welcomed the long-awaited little pig.
“It was three months old when we took it in February 2019. We were adjusting to it. We opened the barbershop in May,” Tiago remarked.
Before putting the adoption into effect, they wanted to be absolutely certain that they had all the resources necessary to care for it properly. To that end, they searched for all the necessary information on the care and feeding of pigs, and who better to give them advice than those who deal with this kind of animal on a daily basis? As a result, they spoke with several pig breeders.
“It needs a little bit more focus. Their learning styles and temperaments differ. You must learn to coexist with the small pig since he is a highly bright creature. We alternate feeding him three times every day with fruits and vegetables, “he continued.
They gave him the name Jerfiso, and a barbershop client who also trained dogs had the bright idea to train the tiny pig. The pair didn’t think it was at all unpleasant, and they got to work with a lot of love and patience. Jérfiso would begin in the skate community.
“We started teaching him how to skate since he had a skateboard hanging on the wall. In the end, many customers visit the barbershop merely to speak with him. We are extremely amazed by how quickly he picks things up, the pleased human said.
