The 15 pet pigs in this video are ready to convince you that you need to have a pig all of your own.
Many people don't think of pigs as being cute, cuddly, or friendly. But the truth is, these pet pigs are absolutely adorable.
They'll certainly keep you entertained, will definitely make you laugh, and have their own way of getting into trouble, whether it's raiding the fridge or burrowing into their bedding. Many of these pet pigs live indoors, and some are even treated like members of the family.
Take a look at this video and see if some of your perceptions about pigs are wrong.
Now, before you go out and buy a pet pig for yourself, it's important to realize that pigs aren't for everyone. While many celebrities have been swept into the mini pig craze, even the pigs marketed as mini pigs can grow far larger than you'd imagine.
If you plan on keeping a pig in your house, you might want to rethink things a bit. Some pigs, bred by reputable breeders and fed limited amounts of special food, may stay small. But most of the time pigs grow larger than expected, and often their owners are forced to find new homes for them.
If you think you'd like to get a pig as a pet, the best thing you can do is to spend some time performing research. Talk to breeders and other pig owners about what their experiences have been like.
Research breeds, learn about pig keeping and what pigs eat, and really be honest with yourself about whether your house and yard are set up to house a pig. Just like dogs and cats, pigs live for years and need space to play, so if you bring a pig into your home you'll need to be prepared to care for it for years to come.
Pet pigs can be a lot of fun as long as you're knowledgeable and prepared for what to expect.
