Important things to remember when finding your pig pet.

True Mini Potbelly Pigs. Nothing else comes close. As a breeder I can state unequivocally that buying a pig from a breeder that does not have a stellar reputation and a very open door policy with plenty of pictures of the breeding pairs and the piglets before you make the trip for a visit is at best very risky. This is all too frequently followed by heartache and waste. Many of the people we meet on a regular basis are heart broken after having trusted an unknown breeder and ended up with animals that are untamable, vastly oversized, and or inbred (subject to heart, lung and other serious health issues). These stories have ended up with family members slaughtering and trying eat the animal or searching in vain for a home for an unwanted animal etc. We recommend visiting a breeder before making any commitment. A breeder should not only accept this but offer this readily. A deal made over a photo of someone holding a newborn pig they are offering for $50 can seriously disrupt your plans and hopes of what should be a rewarding experience. If you are buying a pet pig without proper introduction from an obscure breeder this is like buying a painting site unseen from an unknown artist who describes the work of art. The commitment on the part of a breeder to creating an optimum pet pig is a quite painstaking and and involves a lot of work. From the selection and development of their original stock which can be expensive and hard to locate, to proper breeding farrowing and hours and hours of interaction with ALL of the piglets born. Many breeders start with common stock often mixed with farm swine.

There are some very good and caring breeders out there. But just as with any other pet breeder, pet pig breeders span a wide range from good to bad. The best situation is to meet the breeder and their animals or at least find one with a stellar reputation. Be thoughtful, remember that if you purchase a pet from a breeder who does not take proper care of his or her animals, that you are possibly supporting some level of cruelty.
