    Pigs are very smart animals as smart, if not smarter, than dogs. They can be house trained. So you can let your little guy be a house pig or you can have him be a barn pig.

    I have a regular pot belly pig. We got her at 8wks old. She was already on sweet feed. If you want your pig to stay a minature size do not feed him dog food. That only makes them get HUGE!! They sale potbelly pig food but it is really expensive and just about the same thing as sweet feed.

    Here is our Daisy. She is about 9 years old.
