Rosie Pig Chihuahua has been called “part chihuahua, part pig”. She got her most unusual name, because of the snorting sound her nose makes. She does this as she searches the floor for tidbits and crumbs dropped by her people!
Her many fans discovered Rosie Pig when her video “Pour Some Sugar on Me” went viral. You’ve got to watch it. It’s only 6 seconds long but we’re sure you’ll watch it over and over as we did.
She regularly posts her antics on Vine, Instagram, and Twitter. Rosie Pig has even been featured several times in articles on BuzzFeed, and in promotions for the dog mail order snack company, BarkBox. Rosie Pig has an insatiable love of life (and snacks) and she loves sharing her delicious world view with her many fans all around the globe!
1. Where did you get your name?
My name is very special to me. My family called me Rosie because I was as tiny and delicate as a little flower. The “pig” part came later. It seems that as I grew, I discovered my nose has superpowers! It has the ability to seek out and find even the tiniest of food particles dropped by people.
However, the noise that my nose makes as it searches, has been described by some, as pig-like. Hence my name, Rosie Pig.
2. Tell us the story of how you became famous.
My fame eludes me. My family finds my daily activities amusing. They often record me as I’m going about my business! Somehow this ends up on the Internet. I’m not really sure why I have so many fans, but alas, I do, and I love them all.
