Pigs are incredibly smart and loving and can make wonderful pets when properly trained. Here at This Little Piggy, we will start the training process for each piglet. It is up to you to continue this process at home. We are committed to litter box and harness training our piglets. Our piglets are raised in our home with children and other animals. They are well socialized and exposed to the daily activity of a family. We do not bottle feed unless medically necessary. Piglets will not leave until they are weaned and eating solid food independently at approximately 6-8 weeks old. Each piglet will leave here receiving their 1st & 2nd dose of dewormer, iron shot, veterinary health exam, and litter box trained. Please see the adoption policy page for specifics on spay and neutering contract. We are able to ship within the United States. We do not ship internationally, as the health and safety of our piglets is our priority. Shipping is an additional fee paid by the buyer.
This little Piggy does not guarantee height, weight or length of pigs at maturity, as genetics alone do not determine these factors. Diet and exercise play a major role in the development and mature size of mini pigs. Once a piglet leaves our care, it is impossible for us to regulate these determining factors. Therefore, we are unable to guarantee size at maturity. However, if you follow the recommended nutrition and exercise guidelines provided upon purchase of your piglet will be genetically small.
All sales, adoption and deposit transactions must be made through our website via PayPal after your adoption application is approved by This Little Piggy. Pig ownership is a lifelong commitment, which is approximately 15-20 years. Placing each piglet in a forever home is our priority. If you are absolutely unable to keep your pig, please contact us first. We will assist you in trying to place your piggy in a loving home or we will take the piggy back. Transportation will be the owner’s responsibility.
If needed, shipping is an additional fee of $300. We are able to ship within the United States. We do not ship piglets internationally, as the heath of our piggies is our top priority. Shipping includes a health certificate and an airline approved travel crate. This Little Piggy is responsible for making all travel arrangements. The purchaser will be consulted then notified of shipping arrangements once arranged. The airline imposes weather and age restrictions, when shipping piglets, for the safety of the animal.
