Why Adopt a Mini Pig?
Miniature pigs have become popular household pets in Canada for many reasons. They are incredibly intelligent and extremely affectionate. Mini Pigs are clean and are generally easy to care for. They do not shed and are thought to be hypoallergenic. They generally get along great with other pets and children.
When they are well cared for they will probably end up being one of the best pet that you have ever owned. BUT like any pet, if neglected and un-trained, they can become as challenging as an untrained dog.
We have found miniature pigs to be wonderful pets with quirky personalities People who have not owned a mini pig are surprised to learn that these piggies are ranked as the planet’s 3rd most intelligent animal (following dolphins and chimpanzees). That being said, it is important to understand pig personalities before having one as a pet.
