Miniature Pigs As Pets

Everyone seems to love pigs and as the owner of a miniature pig named “Truffles” I am always being asked “Do pigs make good pets?”. So, before making your decision to buy a miniature pig let me share a few home truths about these loveable little creatures so there will be no surprises once you get your new pig home!

Firstly let me say miniature pigs are adorable, lovable, playful and mischievous. They are very intelligent, easy to house train and can provide a lot of enjoyment to their owners. We love our Truffles and couldn’t imagine our lives without her.

However, pigs are also very headstrong, demanding and persistent if they don’t get their own way, and are always finding new ways to get into mischief!

Pigs love to dig and are absolute water monsters. Ours loves nothing more than walking around with her water bucket over her head then screaming out impatiently to us when she is ready for a drink and finds that the bucket is empty!

Pigs are also escape artists! Even the most “pig proof” enclosures seem to be no match for these cunning creatures. If they want to get out they will find a way (I did say they were intelligent didn’t I?). Just when we think we have found all her escape routes, Truffles will miraculously appear in the adjoining paddock having raided the chook pen and eaten all of their seed and then, just to amuse herself, will chase all of our alpacas around.

Left unsupervised in the house, Truffles has upended the kitchen tidy spreading its contents all over the floor, found the dog food container and gorged herself on its gummy contents, gotten into my handbag eating all of my throat lozenges and headache tablets, and has even eaten a rat bait showing absolutely no signs of feeling the slightest bit “off colour” afterwards.

We have found that routine is very important if you want to live in harmony with your miniature pig. Our Truffles spends her day in the back yard with one of our dogs and, now she has learnt he is the boss, in the main they get along quite well. In the evening after she has been fed, Truffles is let into the house where she stops to eat some treats we have left on the floor for her and then she knows it is bed time and goes out onto the front verandah where she has made an old lounge her bed. There she spends the night quite contentedly (as long as we tippy-toe around the house so as not to wake her) until she decides its time to get up for breakfast.

Truffles can wake up anytime between 5.30am and 8am and once she’s up its impossible to ignore her as she screams and bangs on the front door until she is let through to the backyard and given her brekkie.

So, back to the original question “Do miniature pigs make good pets?” Well, if you are house proud, take pride in your manicured lawns and garden, or don’t have time to devote to meeting the demands of your pet, then a pig is definitely not the pet for you. Similarly, if you couldn’t see the funny side of having a muddy nose rubbed against your clean trousers just before you are about to leave the house, then perhaps you should rethink getting a miniature pig. However, if you can appreciate the funny side of all these antics, I guarantee a miniature pig will provide you with lots of laughs and entertainment, can be very affectionate (on their terms), and, if you get them into a routine, can fit very well into your current lifestyle (as long as you have adapted it to revolve entirely around their requirements!).

    On May 18, 2008 at 5:35 pm

    I hope everyone is aware that there is no such thing yet as a mini-pig or a micro-pig – only pot-bellied pigs which end up weighing (usually) around 120-200 lbs and often much more if overfed, an easy thing to do with a pig. Often, unethical breeders or sellers will tell you they have mini-pigs or that the cute little piglets will never weigh more than 25 pounds or other nonsense, but they are only looking to sell the poor animal. PLEASe DO RESEARCH and take your time deciding. You might try looking at all of the abandoned pet pig sanctuary websites by people caring for pigs who were given up.

    i have received a lot of emails asking where to buy a miniature pig and how much they cost. I just did an internet search for “for sale+miniature pigs” and also “miniature pig breeders” and found someone on the Central Coast of NSW Australia where we purchased Truffles from. She cost us $400AU but I guess the cost will vary from breeder to breeder. Hope this helps, Julie

    Someone in the comment section says there is no such thing as a micro pig – only pot bellied. Now this is untrue as the uk micro pig breeders are quite clearly mini, weigh at full size around 65lbs not over 100 and are a mixture of kune kune and potbellied as well as others.

    So try the uk micro pig breeders coz they seem pretty good!

    Thanks for the mail and the interested you have in adopting my
    little pig,i am sorry for my late response,They are still available
    and love the companion of kids
    and other pets around the house.They are fast in making new friends
    and will make you a great companion,keep you company when ever you are
    lonely.We will like to know the sex you are interested in.
    -Have you ever had a pig before?
    -Are you going to take very good care of the pig when with you?
    -Are you married?
    -How soon do you want the pig?
    -Where are you located?
    -Do you have kids?
    The reason why we are giving out these puppies is because,because we
    want to stop breeding the pig,so we decided to give them out to

    The pig will be coming with:
    -Health certificate of 2years guarantee
    -A crate
    -With all his/her paper works
    -Ukc register
    -Vet check
    -De-wormed
    We are very sorry for all the questions,is just that we want the best

    you may be some distances away from us,we are going to deliver the
    pigto you at your door steps and you will not have to pay any extra
    fee for the delivery apart of £180 per pig, we were in london but
    persently we in Isle of man were i got my new job with the
    pigs.Waiting/read or hear from any interested family/person.

  81. Ralphie

    On March 8, 2010 at 3:05 pm

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do your research before getting a “mini” pig, as they will grow to at least 150-200 lbs. (if you’re lucky). They are very intelligant, sweet animals and need lots of attention. Too many pigs are left alone all day in the yard because they have grown too big for the house and are no longer “cute”. Pig rescues are few and far between, and they’re usually full- so good luck on giving away an enormous pig. Just keep in mind that regular pigs can grow to upwards of a 1000 lbs. so, a “mini” pig could be anything under that, and many breeders have no problem lying to you about their full grown size. Make sure you are prepared to care for your pig for the rest of his/her life- pets are not accessories, they are real, live creatures who count on you for EVERYTHING.

    I own 3 little piggies and people really need to know that these are NOT novelty animals! They are NOT house animals! (Unless you are a very special individual and can take that! Not many people can keep a pig happily in their homes) These are NOT city animals. Pigs naturally “root” and will destroy lawns, gardens, flower beds. I love my pigs and think they are great animals but they are not for just anyone. Seriously research this people. And just for reference, here in Canada prices for mini pigs range from can’t pay someone enough to take them to about $150

    wen i was on my way home from my cottage I asked a local pet store owner where you find mini pigs, she said the best place is kijiji. also the average weight of the smallest pigs is 60-120. which is still smaller that ur average dog.

    Mini pigs are not real! It’s all fake, they are just baby pot bellied pigs and kune kune pigs that grow up to be their usual large self.

    OMG mini pigs are NOT fake. My friend has a mini pig named Tobby. His 4 years old is 49cm tall and weighs 50kg (or he did at his last vet check up) and his in perfect health. I know his not a pot belly pig and I don’t think his a kune kune either but I do know that his fully grown and will not get any bigger. I’m waiting for my kids to get a little older before I get them one, I’m not sure where my friend got his but I will be playing it safe and buying mine from Chrystal who is a very well know breeder of mini pigs here in Australia

    if you want to know where to buy a pig just look up pigs for sale. i want a pig but my dads not to sure about it because his friend said that his friend had one and it wasnt really good but its probably just the owners fault for not taking good care of him.

    Why are there alot of people that want a pig as a pet? Sure potbelly pigs and micro pigs are not as big as farm pigs but they still get big. Any piglet can be smart and cute. It is not hard for a pig to become overweight. All pigs like to root so they need outdoor space too. Yes, pigs are smart but they are usualy aggressive (especialy as they become adults). I was raised on a small farm and have been around some pigs. You may treat a micro or potbelly pig nice and care for it but it does not mean it will not be aggressive or always challenge you.
