This is Petunia, she will be 8 yrs. old this July. She is a Vietnamese Potbellied Pig. We rescued her as a orphan when she was just a few days old. She likes to sunbathe in her kiddie pool and steal my husband's tools when he is outside working.
Pigs are highly intelligent, sensitive, affectionate, curious, social, and interesting beings. They can make great pets but please do your homework first as there are specific zoning requirements regarding having them and they get much larger than most people realize when they get a piglet. They need proper mental, physical, and social stimulation. Please Opt to Adopt!

How and when did you get your pet?
I got Phoebe from a local farm the day before Father's Day.
What does your pet like to do for fun?
Phoebe is very social, we spend lots of time down at the beach walking the boardwalk. She has many followers on her Instagram @PhoebeTheminiPigPrincess
Do you have anything else to share about your pet?
Phoebe has brought me so much joy in the short time I have had her, since I lost my mom to cancer Phoebe helps to fill the void.
Velvet is an 8 week old mini potbelly pig. Velvet's mother was not able to care for her and her brother. A friend of mine told me if I still wanted a pig to come and get them. I have a 10 month old pig already named Digby. I thought he would enjoy company. Velvet loves to run outside and spin in circles, chase her brother Johnc and the dog. She likes to have a bath because then she can have cereal in the water, she likes Cheerios. Velvet is just a sweet girl who loves to snuggle and give kisses. This is her first photo shoot.

John-C and Velvet are 3 days old and are Potbelly piglets. I had been wanting a young piglet to be friends with my 8 month old pig. It was a cold day here in Minnesota when a friend of mine called and said her pig just gave birth.
Quincy is 4 months old. He is a miniature pot belly pig, I got him in December 2010. He loves to run around in the back yard, head butt shoes and EAT! Quincy is the sweetest pet ever.
Johnc is a 9 week old mini potbelly. He was given to me when his mother wouldn't care for him. He loves to bark when he sees me, he likes to chase the chickens and his sister, and dig in the dirt with his nose.
Sophie is my 8 year old Vietnamese Potbelly Pig. My baby loves to eat every food imaginable and snore loudly. :) Sophie is a lover, and especially loves tummy scratches!
I got Digby from a friend who has potbelly pigs.
This is Velvet, the most sweetest girl. She is almost 2 years old. We love her so much. I raised her and her brother since they were 1 day old. They were orphans.

We bought our pig when she was six weeks old as a companion for our daughter. Bessy is an outdoor pig who comes inside to visit, and she enjoys laying on the couch, including on the top of the couch where she lounges like a cat.
I adopted him on February 6, 2012.
My pot belly pig's name is Ellie. She's 8 month's old. I got her from an ad on Craigslist. She likes to chase my dogs and thinks she's a dog.
I got him in Feb 2012. He was abandand by his mama, so my friend gave me him and his sister.
