A Brazilian dancer says she pampers her giant pet pig who she kisses and showers like a big baby.
Gabriela Baltazar says she saved Dorinha as a piglet when its owner died but as it grew too large for her flat she was forced to move out to the countryside.
The model who boasts 138,000 followers on Instagram, has raised Dorinha with a pack of six dogs at the farm where she often shares snaps with her fans.
The animal lover who refers to Dorinha as her ‘30-stone baby', balances out pictures of the porker with glamorous shots of her wearing racy outfits and swimwear.
Gabriela said in a recent interview that she does work with the animal rescue organisation NGO Caopanhia Baltazar and that they recently answered a call for help.
The Brazilian babe said: “A guy who took care of several pigs died and they were starving hungry so I went there to feed them, but I ended up rescuing Dorinha.”
Captioning a cute photo with Dorinha on Instagram, Gabriela wrote: "Dorinha was rescued, very skinny, she was hospitalised for one week taking injectable medications and serum, until she was discharged and went to live in my small apartment, where she grew up and got smarter."
Adorable early content which Gabriela has kept as Instagram highlights dedicated to Dorinha, show the piglet wandering around her flat wearing a nappy and top.
Other clips show Gabriela cradling Dorinha with a bow in her hair and encounters with the pet dogs.
However the pig soon outgrew the flat and afraid of bothering neighbours with the noise and smell, she rented a house in the country.
She posts daily pictures of her piggy on her Instagram channel, which has more than 138k followers.

On the pig's home life habits, Gabriela said that “she ended up breaking the toilet, tables, chairs, and doors” in the house and they were then forced to move to a farm.
Today, Dorinha has her own bed, takes a shower every week, and eats certain types of fruits and vegetables, but only if they are peeled.
The dancer added: “Because she lives with six dogs, she often lies down and asks for affection.”
