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. Why buy and encourage more breeding, when there are so many pigs that need your love first? We can help you adopt a potbellied pig that is perfect for you. Please contact us if you are considering getting a pet pig. Take a look at our ADOPTION CORNER for some of the many pigs needing good loving forever homes.

We cannot possibly list all the information or every website. Before adopting a potbellied pig, we strongly encourage you to first do your research and view the videos on our VIDEO page.

BELOW: Comparison between a baby potbellied pig, a full-grown potbellied pig, and a farm hog. Therefore, in actuality, potbellied pigs are "miniature" when compared to farm hogs. BUT, they do not stay piglet size as micro-mini or teacup breeders insist.

PLEASE NOTE:
UNFORTUNATELY MOST BREEDERS WILL SHOW YOU THE TINY BABIES AND TRY TO MAKE YOU BELIEVE THE PIGS WILL ALWAYS STAY THAT TINY. NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU PAY FOR A PIG, THERE IS NO GUARANTEE HOW BIG THE PIG WILL GET. JUST LIKE PEOPLE, SOME ARE SMALLER THAN OTHERS, BUT IT DOESN'T ALWAYS DEPEND ON GENETICS. AVERAGE SIZE OF A FULL GROWN POTBELLIED PIG IS 18"-24" TALL AND 3'-4' LONG AND ANYWHERE FROM 100+ POUNDS UP TO 275 POUNDS OR MORE. BEWARE OF "FANCY NAMES" THAT BREEDERS GIVE TO PIGS (SUCH AS MICRO-MINI, DANDIE, JULIANA, TEACUP, NANO, POCKET PIG, CHINESE, ETC.... THOSE ARE ALL MADE UP NAMES FOR REGULAR MINIATURE POTBELLIED PIGS). TEACUP PIGS DO NOT EXIST, EXCEPT WHEN THEY ARE FIRST-BORN, BUT THEY CONTINUE TO GROW FOR UP TO 4-5 YEARS. ADOPT A FULL-GROWN PIG, YOU'LL KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GETTING.
