Bringing a little teacup pig or miniature pig into your home is a big decision and a big commitment. A lot goes into the care of a pig. It's a commitment because pigs will live, oftentimes 10 to 15 years. So, they're going to be with you for awhile. You have to piggy proof your home, much like you would proof your home for a toddler. You need to do your research. If you really want a small big, you have to do a lot of research and find a reputable breeder or pig from a pig sanctuary or rescue. So, if you don't want to end up with a really large, hundred pound pig, lumbering around your backyard or home, you really have to do your research. They are a wonderful pet. We really enjoy our miniature pets. You can teach them to do just about anything. They're fun, they're curious, they're an amazing little animal to watch. You can harness train them quite easily and take them for walks, so that you both get your exercise and they love to snuggle. They bond completely and love fully, so they're really a wonderful, little pet.
