Teacup Pigs!

They are the size of a Chihuahua when born and only grow to be as big as a cocker spaniel. They can be house trained, they are very clean, and they are just all around adorable! I want one so bad!

  • Are they agressive? I would want to know because most pigs are. Totally adorable though!

  • I haven't heard of pet pigs being aggressive. Only farm pigs or wild pigs. I suppose it's all in socialization. But even so, it should be easy enough to handle a cocker spaniel sized piggy. lol.

  • They are cute! However, I have read some warnings that the size is not guaranteed and some of these pigs do grow significantly larger than cocker spaniels no matter what the breeder says! I looked into them a couple years ago since I like exotics and my son is scared of dogs and my hubby is allergic to cats. Apparently they were popular in Brittain first and many are now ending up in rescues or shelters because they grew much larger than the owners expected them to.

  • So cute, but I think I'd rather look at pictures of them than clean up after them!
