Guest at local dog pound was a real pig

A dog pound in northwest Ohio has said goodbye to a guest more appropriate for a barnyard.

The Paulding County dog warden took in a pot-bellied pig for a few days this week after a woman who'd been sitting for the animal got stuck with him when the owners wouldn't take him back.

Dog Warden Georgia Dyson normally doesn't accept anything other than dogs. But she tells The Toledo Blade she felt bad for the pig-sitter, whom she described as a senior citizen unable to care for the animal.

Dyson says she fed pig feed to the 14-week-old pig, named Bacon Bits and about the size of a beagle. He got french fries as a treat.

A rescue farm came to fetch Bacon Bits on Wednesday.
