Who has house pigs?

    First, someone slap me for considering a pig. Then tell me the pros and cons of living with a house pig and dogs. :lol:

    I was looking at some baby potbellies on craigslist, and after I talked my RM into it, another ad popped up for an 8mo male, neutered, UTD on shots and house and leash trained and raised with dogs free to a good home. Crap.

    I've had major puppy fever recently. Haven't had one in the house for nearly four years (crazy to think Jaeger is going to be FOUR in a few months). Pigs are close enough!

    OMG I saw that too and told Eric I wanted to go get it. Now you can and I can live vicariously through you :grin:

    I know Team Peanut's mom (I think?) recently got a pig.. maybe she'll pop in with her experience.

    She sent me a picture of him and more info and he's so squishy looking!

    I think you need a pig instead. Yours might accept him better than Jaeger will. :lol:

    Eric said when we move to a place with a bigger yard I can get my pig, if I still want one then :lol:

    How big is he?

    Yes my mom has a pig. She got her from Texas tiny pigs.

    While she its cute i don't think i could ever own a pig. Fwiw pig poop stinks! They so far seem like dogs with training. She its right now going thru a biting and destructive phase. She its 3 months old. The squealing though freaks me out. Every time i go near her she squeals.

    I love pigs, don't have one, but it's on my list for future pets.

    I like them as a breeder.

    I will say so far Peanut likes the pig he sees her thru a fence but he licks her nose. He also sees her when someone is carrying the puff. He steals her toys too.

    This is the picture she sent me:

    He doesn't look very big.
    And I also see a striking resemblance between him and my late grandparent's white schnauzer.

    My friend has 4 she just got a new one.
    Although hers are raised in the house and the go outside when they are older but if you have any specific questions I can ask her!

    Poo! It did. I must have deleted something.

    Ali, mostly I'd like to know what she does with them when she's not home. Do pigs kennel? I would assume they don't mind too much, there is no way there will be a loose pig in my house if I'm not home.
    And how they take to traveling - I don't go anywhere often, usually one week every year. Not TOO long of a car trip 3-4 hours. If it came to it, I'd hire a pig sitter.

    Odd questions, I know :lol:

    Oh god he is cute! I just showed him to Eric and he said "He looks like food.. like he's laying on a platter." :lol: Poor pig, I'd have to hide him from Eric I guess.

    Oh wow he's tiny!
    I sent her a message ill let you know

    She said she confines hers to one room and hers travel fine in a crate.
    But she said be weary because they grow for 4 years so because he's small doesn't mean he will stay small.

    Oh, I know :D
    I wouldn't mind a big piggy, I don't think. But that is more to think about. If I could be certain of getting J used to him, there wouldn't be a problem and I'd pick him up now. J has intense prey drive and we're just getting to the point with the cat that he can lay near her on a leash. The only thing he has HARMED is a rat. Otherwise he rushed up on the cat (or frog one time) and bounces all around them like he's scared they'll shock him if he touched them.

    Lol @kamdon :)

    My mom uses a pen inside her room kinda like the puppy pens with blankets and pillows and a few toys in it. She is liter box trained took 2 days to fully train her. She brought her to one of Peanuts practices set her up in a pack n play next to Peanut.
  20. Here's mine, lol. We were on a hog hunt the other night, and we caught her momma. Babies scattered everywhere and my husband snatched her up. Her name is Spot, aka Shake-n-Bake. She was TINY when we brought her home, and she's growing like a stink weed. I supplemented her with formula at first, but she's on normal feed now :D

    She is naughty in the house though if you aren't watching her. She'll chew on shows and wires like a dang puppy!!!

    I gotta get better pics of her. She's turning red where she's blong in the pic. I love her spots. She's just my pet, and I use her to start puppies up on baying (with her safe in an enclosure:) )

    My husband has a little sow too he raised up from about 5lbs. She's about 40lbs now. She's red. Her name is Bacon. She lives out in a nice dog kennel though, lol.
