Meet Derek Walter (left) and Steve Jenkins (right). They live in Canada.

The couple thought that the pig they adopted, Esther, was a mini pig, Jenkins told BuzzFeed News.

Turns out that was absolutely not the case.

OHHHHH my goodness gracious, bless their hearts.

The couple tracked their new pig's growth. “She was growing at a pound a day at the fastest,” Walter said.

Esther is big but beloved. "Her intelligence surpassed the dogs instantly," Walter said.

Inspired by the other fate that could have awaited their pet, the couple began Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary. The ~saved~ animals sleep out of the house.

But Esther sleeps indoors with her forever family <3.
