Der Spiegel (who else) informs us

Manni, a wild boar piglet, was found abandoned and starving in a field near Ehringhausen in rural southwestern Germany. The lucky pig was adopted by the Dahlhaus family, who bottle-fed him back to health.

The family also introduced the perky porker to their Jack Russell terrier Candy. It turned out to be a match made in hog heaven. According to Dahlhaus, “the pair play together every day. They play hide and seek, romp around in the hedges and bushes and just have a lot of fun together.” Apparently Manni, who is now five weeks old, is even figuring out how to communicate with Candy — he’s learning to bark.
