Having a mini pig as a pet:
Having a pig as part of your family is beyond rewarding. The personality and love they bring are priceless. They strive for approval and constantly want to be loved. Pigs are one of the top most intelligent animals, right under dolphins and above dogs. They get along great with children and most other pets. You do however need to introduce everyone slowly and with supervision. Additionally, we must advise to never leave a potentially aggressive dog home alone with your pig.
Pigs are extremely clean and prefer neat and scheduled order to their life. They are easily litter box trained and love to sleep in fluffy dog beds in the house with you! Additionally, you can harness train them to go places or on walks with you! They are so unique and special for so many reasons. With proper care, a pig can live 12-15 years! Pigs are social animals, so if you work a 9-5 and have no other animals to keep your pig company, or if you live in an apartment where there isn’t an attached, enclosed yard, a pig is most likely not a good pet for your living situation. Pigs like to be around their owners and or other animals for companionship and need space to be a pig freely off leash.
Purchasing a mini pig is a commitment, not something you want to gift to someone as a surprise. It takes preparation and research before jumping in to owning a pig. See our Prepping for your piglet page to get an idea of what you will need for a pet mini pig. Understand your pig can live possibly 15 years or more.
