    The lady said potbellied but dk for sure. Dont know that much about him other than what she said. Dh knows how to care for a baby cause his pig when he was a kid was only one or two days old, they were going to kill it cause it was a runt lol and when it died its back was taller than a 55 gallon drum. Just wondering stuff about house training them and mabey if someone could guesstimate how big he will get?

    He is adorable! Definitely get him fixed if you are planning on keeping him as a pet. Here is a site that is very informative on pigs and they are very helpful and responsive if you email them questions as well...
