  • LOL Sammigirl! I have one of those too! For twelve years we kept hedgehogs... that was as uncommon as we ever got. The pet stores near me are pretty well stocked with exotics, so I can't think of what I could legally own here that I couldn't find in a pet store!

    One of my neighbours as a kid had a pet raccoon... they found him at the side of the road as a baby, next to his mom who had been hit by a car. They bottle fed him and had him around like a dog... his name was Rusty and he was really sweet!

  • I have a potbelly pig.. It might not be uncommon, but you can't get them at a pet store...

  • I have dogs. Now I know you can get dogs in pet stores. But, the dogs I have you can't. They weren't massed produced to sucker people out of money. They weren't from females that were bred over and over again until they are too old to breed. They had health checks, came from parents who were multi champions and from breeders who know what they are doing and breed once or twice a year.

    Our other dog was dumped on my door step at 5 weeks old...by people who are exactly as I described when speaking about the pet stores.

    Un common, probably not, better for not buying from a pet store...most definitely.
