Many breeders are selling pigs they claim will stay tiny, under 35 pounds or so. This is very rarely the truth. The tiny pigs they show you are merely newborn piglets, many are inbred and underfed. In addition, those breeders will often misinform you of proper feeding instructions for a healthy potbellied pig in order to attempt to keep the pig tiny. A underfed pig is a very unhealthy pig and can be aggressive due to being hungry all the time. As a result of those breeders misinformation, many of these pigs end up in shelters and sanctuaries.
