Look no further, we have re-designed our pet pig directory. We used to have a plain ole directory listing page where you could find all the breeders in one place, but now it’s even better.

Mini Pig breeders are being added all the time, so you should really book mark this site and come back often. We have advanced the site and are now allowing pet pig parents to rate their breeder and let everyone know how their experiences have been. All listings and comments are monitored and will not be approved until verified. Our rating system is only available to those that are registered to prevent abuse. We are not brokers or anyway associated with any of the breeders listed on this site. We are only trying to help the good ethical breeders and legit rescue facilities.

Some of the breeders/ Rescues listed here have offered some articles to get the truth out about pet pigs. I know that there are farms promising the smallest pigs around, and they also claim that they will only get to be 10lbs when full grown. Some of those breeders might even be listed on this site.  If you personally have one of these pigs, please comment on the breeder and provide pictures so that we can see a healthy 10lb 3 +year old.

What people don’t seem to realize is that a mini pig may be 50 lbs, but is no bigger than a bull dog. I believe that people have it in their head that a 50lb pig is huge.

That is not the case at all. The picture on the right is one of my babies at approximately 40lbs. as you can see, she is very healthy and very small.

Phebe

The gate in the back show this. Yes, she did fit in a teacup when she was a baby, but so do all piglets. So what I am saying is, don’t scour the internet looking for the smallest pig you can find, instead look for the healthiest and the breeder that goes the extra mile to make sure that you are prepared for the adventure that follows.

I really have to stress the fact that this is NOT a case where ” you get what you pay for”. I have seen breeders charging thousands of dollars for a pig that ended up being over 100lbs where some of them charge 300 for the ones that stay around 50 lbs. I do understand the cost involved in raising them and vet bills and all of that, I should, I did if myself. But to charge 3k to 5k for a pig is just ridiculous to me.

Lets break it down a bit. Yes, a breeder has to search around and purchase the best breeding stock they can find to get started. Then pair them up and wait 3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days for the babies to be born. Feed for the mom goes up ( If you are a good breeder) during the time the sow in pregnant and while she is nursing her babies. She will nurse them for around 6 weeks ( different breeders have different timelines) I personally kept my babies with their mom for 6 weeks unless the mom decided she didn’t want them around her. They should be starting to eat on their own by this time.

The vet bill can be around 200 to have the pig spayed or neutered. Some vets won’t do this that early, but most will spay/neuter at around 8 weeks. If you are purchasing a piglet that has not been spayed/neutered, make sure that you do this as soon as your vet allows. The boys can usually be neutered pretty early, but to spay the female is a lot more invasive so some vets like to wait awhile. Just because your pig has not been spayed, does not mean that they are coming from a bad breeder, it just means that they or their vet do not believe it is safe for the the girl yet. Most ethical breeders will make you sign a contract saying that you will have this done on your own within a certain period of time. If you do not get this done, you will have a very unruly pet pig.  Unfortunately this is when most of the pet pigs end up in a sanctuary. Instead of being educated, people are fed up with the behavior and decide that maybe a pig wasn’t their best choice for a pet. Most of the pigs in the sanctuaries get spayed/neutered as soon as they can and would be an awesome pet for for someone. But since everyone is out there looking for the little bitty babies, these discarded pigs are feeling like an orphan that nobody wants. Don’t get me wrong, the shelters give them as much love as they can, but there are so many of them that one on one attention is almost impossible. I put shelters on the pet pig directory in the hopes that people will choose to adopt some of the pigs there before they spend thousands of dollars on a pig that might just get to be the same size as the ones in the shelter.

So why 3k to 5k for a baby? I have no clue.

Now, back on the subject of the directory. We are trying to bring together all of the ethical breeders, shelters, and vet together in one place as well as providing you all the information you will need to provide for your new pet pig. I really hope that you find this site useful.

I really want to direct your attention to an article that was posted on our PigFacts page today on Natural Behavior  Provided by Vickie Craig and written by Dave.

Having a pet pig in your house or even in your backyard can be pretty aggravating at times. Understanding what your pig needs and wants are will help you enjoy your pig. I have found that most people really don’t know what they are getting when they purchase their pet pig. They see these little cuties and the desire to have one out weighs the common sense.

Honestly, most of us know exactly what kind of dog we will buy before even looking for one. We have this checklist in our heads of questions to ask ourselves.

  1. Will this dog be good around my kids?
  2. Will my new dog need to be inside or outside?
  3. Will I have the time to train my puppy?
  4. What kind of things will I need ( dog bed/ Dog house, food, etc…

There are tons more, but most people don’t ask those questions when they buy a pig. Believe me, I KNOW how cute the little piglets are and I fell victim to that as well with my first mini pig Phebe. But thank God I live on 5 acres and was able to let her out of the house to run around the yard and be a pig.  I did breed them for awhile and sold to people that live in apartments and small communities, but I honestly wouldn’t suggest it unless you have some place to let the pig out in the yard.

What is wrong with Mini Pig Breeders?

Looking through my emails and messages today, I came across one that really needed my attention. I got so caught up in responding to her dilemma that I totally forgot to comment about it on my blog. Truth is, I was pretty pissed off .

These breeders don’t take in to consideration the feeling that get hurt when they lie to their customers. People are getting their hearts broken and spending tons of money in the process. Ok, let me start over now that I’m done with my little rant.

The Message I recieved

I won’t give any names because I don’t want to hurt her any more than she has already been hurt, but I will quote parts of her message for you so that you will understand the rant above.

She wrote:

“I am due to get a mini piglet baby but she told me it was going to be 10 day’s old and it is eating warm milk and bread is that good for them and how many time’s a day do I feed it?”

WHAT!! I have never heard of giving a baby pig bread. sure it will eat it, but there isn’t any real nutrition in it. All that will do is fatten the “Micro Pig” up. Keep feeding it like that and it won’t be micro for long. And why on earth would a reputable breeder send a 10 day old piglet away. I know, they wouldn’t.

A reputable breeder will keep the baby with it’s mom for at least 6 weeks. Before anyone gets too pissed off at me for saying that, let me clarify.  I used to breed pigs of all sizes and I know that sometimes the mom will reject them or worse. But what I am saying is there are too many people that LIKE to take the baby away at a few days and start bottle feeding them because they claim that they are friendlier that way. I have personally found that not to be true.

My very first mini pig (Phebe)was 8 weeks old when I got her and she is just as friendly as any of the other ones that I have ( I currently have 4 ). One of the babies that I kept was from a litter where the mom tried to kill them and that was horrible. I have to bottle feed the babies and I have to tell you, that is not an easy task. They all want to eat at the same time and are all starving to death. Kudos to the people that have twins, triplets, quads or more.

Anyway back to my story: After recieving this message, my advice to her was to get Unimilk and add some baby cereal to it. We use  Earth’s Best Organic Whole Grain, Rice Cereal because we try to do everything as Organic as possible. But you can just pick some up from your local grocery store too. With the baby being only 10 days old I suggested that she feed him every 2-3 hours the first couple weeks and then just start spreading it out to 3-4 hours and so on. By the time he gets to 6 weeks he should be eating twice a day ( with treats in between of course lol).

Second Message Came with Happy News

Thank you so much for getting back to me I wanted to let you know he is doing great and eating good and is already going potty outside He loves to be cuddle up in are blanket’s on are bed I have been giving him soft milk Mauzai food mini youth pig feed and baby cereal I only give him a bit at a time so that i don’t hurt is belly I have been keeping him warm in a nice pet taxi and blanket’s inside and i cover the top that has been keeping him warm. He is 16 day’s old now.

I was so happy to get this message from her. She is doing a great job taking care of this piglet that she really shouldn’t have had yet. One of the hardest things I have had to do is try to keep a baby pig alive when it is taken too early or rejected.

Third Message Came With Great Pain

I am very sad to say that he has passed away at 3 am. I was up with him all night until he went I have no clue why or how he got so sick so fast but he has been placed in his blanket he loved so much and now he is resting in peace and is no longer hurting.

My Little Heart Break

RIP Little Angel

I cry every time I get messages like this. She did everything she could to care for this baby. And after 6 days, if you are any kind of animal lover, you get so attached to the baby. And no matter how much they try and how much they do, I still get the same kind of message from them “I am so hurt and so upset I feel like I did something wrong”. I have had a couple pass as well, so I really understand how much pain she is feeling.

I am happy to say that she did end up getting another baby a couple months later and is very happy with her new healthy baby girl.

I hate that people have to go through all of that pain and I can only help them so much. I can’t even tell you how many messages I get on this type of situation. That is the key reason that I set up a directory so that people can comment about the different breeders that they have come in contact with. I searched all over the internet and didn’t come up with anything that could help people find a reputable breeder. I was actually amazed because there are directories for everything else.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this subject and possibly anything that would help the next person ( and there will be a next person) that I get a message like this from.

Our love for pigs keeps growing every year. Phebe, our first mini pig gave us so much pleasure that we had to have another. Before long people started asking us to breed for them. Once that happened, we were really hooked. These beautiful babies fit in the palm of your hand when they are born and absolutely love attention. Selling them became the hard part. Watching them leave after getting attached to their individual personality was difficult, especially my favorites.

We soon realized that live would be too dull without these beautiful little animals. We have stopped breeding these adorable mini pigs, but we couldn’t let them all go, We still have 4 of them.

Our piggies have there own house yard and pool outside since they seem to like it better that way.  Phebe occasionally wants to come in our house, but not very often anymore. Having her friends and daughter outside make it a lot more fun.
