Although Mini Pigs seem like a costly pet to invest in, they are a pet that you will have for years to come. And best of all, they only cost pennies a day to keep! They eat mini pig food, which is not expensive at all, and love to snack on over-ripe fruits and veggies and graze on grass. They rarely suffer from health issues, keeping vet bills to a minimum. So although the initial investment may be hard to swallow, you can rest assured that the costs are minimal once you have your piggie home.

We have limited number of Mini pigs for sale every year, so if you are set on owning one, it is a good idea to get onto our waiting list because we cannot predict what demand will be like at the time of availability.

We cannot guarantee a piglet's size, color or eye color 100%. The best we can do is estimate what the probable factors will be for each breeding, as genetics are tricky and every pig is different. Piglets are not available to be chosen until they are 2-3 weeks old as this allows us time to see how they're growing and assure good health. We will send you updated pictures of our piglets and you can decide based on the picture, or you may visit them at our farm :)

Our sought after minis are priced at $1300.  This INCLUDES SPAY/NEUTER*

That being said, the cost is still higher than many other pets because a lot more goes into breeding mini pigs than breeding cats or dogs. A reputable breeder will place a great deal of time, effort and money into their pigs to ensure you get the best pet mini pig possible. We spend hours each day socializing and training all of our animals. Adopting from Three Little Pigs will ensure that you receive a piglet that is sweet, loving and well socialized providing you with a clean slate to raise a successful pet.

Other than the time demanded by mini pet piglets, it’s important to acknowledge that breeding stock for mini pet pigs is very costly. There are many opportunistic people that obtain piglets that they breed without any knowledge of the pigs final size, parents size, inbreeding, temperament, health, etc. ALL PIGLETS are cute, but many grow to be extremely large and stem from a line that has an aggressive temperament as they are primarily used for livestock or reside on farms. For an indoor PET, it is important that buyers question any pigs being sold under $1000.
