Oxford Sandy and Black Pigs originated in Oxfordshire, UK. Named for its color, which is a base of sandy brown with black patches, the breed is also sometimes called the Plum Pudding or Oxford Forest pig Related to the old Berkshire and Tamworth breeds, they are one of the oldest pigs native to Britain.

Oxford Sandy and Black are a hardy, docile pig suited to being reared outdoors, where its color protects it from sunburn (which pink pigs tend to suffer from). The breed has twice neared extinction, but has recovered due to the efforts of a dedicated breed association.
