I was reading an article about them and it said that those with allergies would not be allergic to a pig cause the skin and hair is so similar to ours. My ds is VERY allergic to dogs, and reading the article made me think that a micro pig might be a good idea for when, and if he ever wants a dog. Anyone have them? pros and cons? I think they are the new "it" animal and all the celebs are getting them that being the case I bet there will be many up for adoption/rescue in a few years and I could get one that way. Although having a little piglet would be cool I prefer shelter rescues over buying a pure breed. (that rule does not apply to chooks though ) any suggestions or comments welcome. Do we have any piglet breeders here on BYC?
