The Metal Pig:
Ambitious, intense and energetic, this outgoing and social Pig has the tendency to get carried away with his personal life, blindly trusting the object of his affections while showering him generosity. This passionate Pig can sometimes appear to be domineering and lacking in delicacy, highly capable of explosive emotions when angered or ignored.

This kind and perceptive Pig has a heart of gold, and looks for the best in others, believing in miracles, and refusing to see any malice or ugliness in his world. With a wonderful talent for diplomacy and helping others get along, this pleasant Pig would make an excellent ambassador, as he has excellent entertaining and social abilities as well.
