Teacup Pigs ( why I love them so much )

  • Sumo

Not so long ago I didn’t know anything about teacup pigs ( micro mini pigs ) and at that time when someone mention pigs my first association was huge pigs rolling in the mud in some farm yard. Then I accidentally saw a reportage about some guy from UK who’s breeding extremely small piggies, and that short reportage changed my life.

Teacup pigs Since that date I’m investigating on Internet an reading everything that comes to my hand about teacup pigs.
This incredible animals may be the best choice for pet, they are very smart and they love to play. Some say they are smarter that dogs. They are clean and easy to maintain pets. If you imagine that they are really teacup size I have to disappoint you they are that small only when they are born. But however mini pigs are much smaller then standard farm pigs and regular potbelly pigs. Miniature pigs reach full-grown size when they are between 2 to 3 years old. Adult micro mini pig typically weight around 30 – 60 lbs and are about height of a medium size dog. Occasionally you can find breeders whose full grown pigs are in the 25-32 lbs range, in most cases that pigs come as a result of crossbreeding between micro size potbellies and mini juliana’s. A life span of this adorable creatures is 15 to 20 years. So if you are looking for a companion that’s gonna be with you for along time mini pig may be the right choice.
My goal is to write down on this site everything I know about teacup pigs and to provide useful information for everyone who is interested in mini pigs.

    i would love to get one! but i have a dog, will my dog like, attack it? i’ve heard people say that dogs are known to kill pigs, is this true?

    • admin says:

      They can play together but you should NEVER let them unsupervised, because dogs are predators by nature and pigs ( especially small ones ) are prey.
      I think that it’s not a very good idea for you to get a mini pig if you plan to keep your dog.

    I love teacup pigs, and I am trying to convince my parents to let me purchase one. But I have a question. How do teacup pigs react to other animals? I have three cats, and if this will distress the pig, I do not think I should purchase a teacup pig.

    • admin says:

      My friend have a cat and a teacup piggy and from what I saw they get along very well

    • Lydia says:

      I don’t have a teacup pig, and I really want one. As for your comment about cats and pigs, we have regular sized pigs and barn cats. They all get along really well. The cats would even sleep with the pigs when they were still small. So I think you’d be fine with getting a teacup pig, while having your cats.

    I was REALLY looking forward to getting a tea cup pig. Unfortunately, I already have a medium sized dog and having in consideration what you said about leaving them unsupervised I guess I will not be getting one. I would not want to put a little piggy in danger but thank you so much for all the information!

    I love micro pigs and have always wanted one. Sadly I’m not aloud one, I’m 11 years old but my arenas believe that when I go to university they will have to take care of the piggy. Is there anyway that I could convince them that I will take care of it?

      You have to convince your parents that you are a responsible person.Try to improve your grades at school and be more helpful at home.
