MINIATURE POT BELLY PIGS & MINI PIGS
Pot Belly Pigs are friendly, social animals. They are excellent pets. The average weight of an adult Pot Belly Pig is between 65 & 100lbs on a proper diet of mini pig food and NO table food. However if overfed they can easily reach weights in excess of 200lbs. They are easy to housebreak or litter train and respond well to obedience training. Pigs root with their snout & are clean,quiet pets. if you do not give your pet pig proper attention they can become destructive. They get along well with other animals including dogs & cats.Vaccines although not required by law are recommended and all our pigs are current on vaccines and wormings. pigs rarely bite and love belly rubs. Pigs can be housed indoors similar to a dog or outdoors with adequate shelter from the elements. Pigs love soft warm bedding in their home or bed, for outdoor houses pine shavings and straw are good choices. It is recommended to have your pig spayed or neutered but not required. Our pigs are home raised and played with daily.
Chocolate is highly toxic to pigs as are acid loving plants.
