Move over Miss Piggy, there’s a new pig diva in town.
A one-year-old Vietnamese pot-bellied pig is so adored by owner Savannah Harding that she even has birthday parties and enjoys walks in a stroller or pram when she doesn't feel like walking on a lead.
Peaches the pig even has her very own ‘piggy paradise’ bedroom after 20-year-old Savannah shelled out a staggering £2000 to make the pig comfortable – complete with a full wardrobe of clothes, a spotlighted ceiling to light up the all pink decor and pig mural feature wall.
Animal lover Savannah, a barmaid based in Sunderland, made a ten hour round trip to South Wales to purchase Peaches, after she had been begging her parents for years.
Since then the adorable pig has been spoiled rotten with a lavish birthday party, handmade outfits and tasty treats, including a bowl of porridge and blueberries every night.
She has a wardrobe full of carefully handmade outfits for every occasion and refuses to go out on a walk if it's raining unless she's wearing her coat.
Speaking about her little porky friend, Savannah explained: “All my life I've been obsessed with pigs and always collected pig teddies and toys, knowing I would get a pig one day.
"My mum and dad got fed up of me asking to get one and gave in. We've got lots of animals, horses and dogs, so we're not fazed by much.
"As a piglet, I held and cuddled Peaches constantly so she's really affectionate and still tries to jump on my lap not realising she's too big now.
"She's more like a person than a pig, she's like my child and my life revolves around her - I don't even want to go on holiday anymore because I don't want to leave her.
"I absolutely spoil her so she definitely lives her best life. She's a massive diva with lots of personality but she's got the kindest heart."
Savannah’s dedication to Peaches has even seen her buy her own sewing machine and learn to make custom outfits for her pig.
“I used to dress her in dog clothes but as she got bigger nothing fit so I bought a sewing machine and taught myself how to make outfits for her,” she said.
"Now she has a full wardrobe and special outfits for every occasion. I think she has about ten custom-made outfits so far and countless coats because she refuses to go outside if it's cold or raining without one.
"I've even set up an Instagram page dedicated to her wardrobe and called it Peaches Couture."
And Peaches has now become a TikTok sensation, with over 25,000 followers on the video sharing platform obsessed with Peaches adventures with Woody, Savannah’s dachshund.
“People stop me to take photos and videos and say I'm crazy - it's definitely shocked a lot of people because you don't see that everyday.
"Since setting up a TikTok account dedicated to her she's built quite a fanbase online as well and gone viral a few times, people just love her."
