Don’t be fooled by labels like “Miniature pig”, “Teacup Pig”, “Micro Pig”, it will not stay small. Pigs grow. The more they eat, the more they grow. If you want a pig, you have to be prepared for a full size animal.
Mrs Nellie is my cousin’s pet pig. She was originally a “Miniature Pig”. She grew to be probably around 90 lbs under a controlled diet. She oozes personality and has a one-track mind; she searches for food pretty much constantly while awake. I am totally intimidated by her, (she is not very welcoming of strangers), but I really do like her. She is very smart and in many ways very similar to a pet dog.
I think if I lived in the country, I might just want to have a pet pig too 🙂
