Hog Heaven: Local pig lives the good life

Dandy the pig was rescued from neglect. We meet his owner and learn about his new life.

BRAZOS COUNTY - A local pig is living the good life after a woman rescues him from a neglectful home. Lindsey Reichwein saved Dandy, a 150 pound pot belly pig. Now the pig can be seen walking around on a leash and enjoying yummy snacks- a significant upgrade from when he was found. Lindsey says he had issues with his skin, was underweight and afraid of people. Now, he is a great pet.

"He is really really clean, surprisingly, even though he always has mud on him," said Reichwein. 
Dandy lives in a pen just outside of Bryan, that's because no pigs are allowed to live inside the city. Pot belly pigs are allowed in College Station, but they have to be licensed by the city.
