There's an update Thursday night about a pig who lost his way.

Piggy Wiggy, a female pot-bellied pig that was found wandering around a westside convenience store early Wednesday morning, found a new home.

A Houston group called "Mini Pig Rescue" picked her up Thursday afternoon. However, she didn't go quietly with her new owners.

It turns out she was scared because investigators say the wounds we reported yesterday were burns caused by lighter fluid.

Investigators say someone set her on fire.

Once Piggy Wiggy's story went viral, it caught the attention of that rescue group.

Megan Esparza with Houston Mini Pig Rescue said, "by 8:30 last night I was like 'we're getting her.'" 

Because of the abuse, she went through; Piggy Wiggy will never be put up for adoption. But we are told her new owners will provide the brave pig a healthy environment only elaborating she will be in "hog heaven."

Something we also learned about the porky friend, turns out she is only a year old. 

The owners say she will become a hearty eater and expected to add at least a good five to six hundred pounds.
