Quite a ham! Little piggy finds a new home

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - They're used to dealing with cats and dogs, but workers at the Helen Woodward Animal Center had a problem of another size with the arrival of Sherlock Hams, a pint-sized pig.

Sherlock spent the last month running in the Swifty Swine Race at the San Diego County Fair. A woman saw the pig and asked if she could buy him. His owners said yes, but when the woman got him home, she discovered she was allergic.

Shelter workers say this type of thing happens often when potential pet owners don't do their research on how a particular pet will impact their lives.

Happily, Sherlock has found a new permanent home with one of the shelter workers.
