There was a time not so long ago when pigs were afforded no respect, except by other pigs. One morning, Babe is awakened by the sheep's cries and finds three dogs attacking them. Hoggett arrives and, thinking that Babe killed her, prepares to shoot him. Plot[ edit ] Babe, an orphaned piglet, is chosen for a "guess the weight" contest at a county fair.
This restores Babe's faith in Hoggett's affection and he begins eating again. Rex is then chained to the dog house, muzzled and sedated, leaving the sheep herding job to Babe.
