She was truly saved by a labor of love. While pigs don't get the same loving treatment as dogs, the domesticated pig has a long history with humankind. Pigs have been tamed to live with humans since as early as 13000 B.C.
Evidence has been found in the Tigris basin, which is located in modern-day Turkey, Syria, and Iraq. Since their domestication thousands of years ago, the pig has become one of the most abundant large mammals on the planet, with a population of around 1 billion.
Although pigs are associated with livestock, they are more behaviorally similar to dogs and humans. Pigs are social creatures and seek physical contact and company from others of their own kind. They are also surprisingly intelligent and can even be trained.
