I have wanted one of these little angels for as long as I can remember. I know that they don’t stay teeny forever; they actually grow to be around 60 pounds, just a little smaller than a medium-sized dog. They can also be housetrained, and they keep themselves clean and don’t shed. As long as you bathe them no more than once a month, and keep them on a diet of pig food and veggies only, they’re relatively simple pets. You have to walk them and give them plenty of TLC or else they can become depressed or aggressive, but that’s the same as pretty much any animal. I JUST WANT ONE SO BAD. I would prefer a boy piggy, named Basil…but if I got a girl, it would be Rosie. I just love these little babies, and they’re so friendly and kind and loving. The only thing is, I’ve never been able to figure out if it’s legal to own one in the US, and they can run up to $1,000.
So it’s official: I’m getting a traditional piggy bank, and I’m starting a fund to buy a teacup pig once I have my own house.
