I know pigs are farm animals. My daughter has been begging for one as a pet. A friend of hers just got one. Anyone have a pet pig? How much work are they?
I've seen some pictures recently of baby pigs that are just adorable. It is my understanding that pigs are very clean pets and can be trained to use a litter box. Are you looking at pot bellied pigs or just plain pigs?
The miniature pink pigs are supposed to make great pets. They're supposed to be like dogs in many regards -- smart, easy to train, affectionate, etc. I would definitely consider it if we were allowed any type of pet other than dogs/cats in our apartment complex.
I'm not sure what country you're in, but my sister was looking into this as my niece has also been clamouring for a micropig after seeing them all over Instagram. When my sister investigated, it turns out there are all sorts of Governmental rules and regulations you have to abide by https://www.gov.uk/guidance/keeping-a-pet-pig-or-micropig. Even though you might be keeping it indoors, it's still technically classed as livestock and so is subject to all the same DEFRA (Dept of Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) rules. So definitely do some serious research before committing!
