Mini piglets for sale!
Did you know that the mini or micro pigs can be the best indoor pets ever? They are extremely intelligent (4th smartest among mammals or according to David DiSalvo writing in Forbes they are 'widely considered the smartest domesticated animal in the world" and can be easily house-trained.
...and we also think they are the cutest pets ever;)
Adults only weight 25-35 pounds so they are the size of a small to a medium size dog. Great with kids, dogs and cats! They can also be taught how to go through a doggy door or ring a bell at a door to notify their owners if they need to go outside. They are supposedly hypoallergenic and often do well with people that have usual animal allergies as they have hair and not fur. They do, however, "blow their coat" meaning that they shed most of the longer hair once a year, usually in Spring or early summer to prepare for the warmer months ahead. Because pigs do not sweat (the often used term "I'm sweating like a pig" is a misnomer since pigs only sweat a small amount from their snouts), they shed to help keep cool in the warmer summer months. Though the main assumption about pigs is that they are very dirty animals, in fact, they will usually only get muddy or dirty when provided with a much needed outside area to gain vitamin D from sun/rooting soil and grass for a diet, and use the mud as a sunscreen or cooling agent to keep their body temperature regulated. Wallowing, as it is referred to, is when a pig will root up a certain area of dirt and roll around in the mud to get a nice layer of mud on their skin to protect against the sun and as a bug repellent.
