Move over Dalmatians, a little baby pig is taking the spotlight at a firehouse in Brooklyn. Penny the fire pig is three months old and was adopted by FDNY firefighter Darren Harris. Penny spends much of her time hanging with her dad and the other firefighters at Engine 239 in Park Slope. She’s become somewhat of a local celebrity, as many people stop by to snap pictures with the cutie and feed her snacks. Harris says Penny will likely be about 50 lbs. when she’s fully grown. Her dad and the other firefighters have changed up their diets and are no longer eating pork around the firehouse.
