Pet pigs are a lot of work. Pigs are very smart so they need something to do to be kept occupied.
A bored pig is a destructive pig!!!
A rooting box filled with balls or river rock can provide a lot of fun for your piglet especially if you throw some treats in there for them to root and find.
Busy dog toys can keep them occupied also. I have balls,baby toys and other things for them to play with and keep them from getting bored.
Pigs are not fully grown until about 4 - 5 yrs old. Most of their growth is done in the first yr and the pigs growth plates close around 2 1/2 - 3 yrs so after that they just "fill out" some.
Always try to see the parent pigs when buying a piglet. You can better estimate your piglets full grown size much better. Parent pigs should be at least 1 1/2 - 2 yrs old so they will be at least close to their full adult size. Pigs can breed very early so make sure the parents aren't babies themselves.

Pigs are prey animals, you should never ever leave your pet pig and your dogs alone. Many pigs find their friend a dog but even after yrs of being best friends if left alone a fight can happen and your pig is usually the one who gets hurt badly.
Not all vets are knowledgeable in the care of mini pigs. Make sure you find one before you take your piggy home. You should also find one that can be contacted after hours in case of an emergency which of course is either on a weekend, holiday or after hours.
PIG FACTS YOU MAY NOT KNOW
Research is very important to do before getting any pet that you don't have experience with. Pigs can be amazing pets but aren't for everyone. You should definitely do tons of research about them as pets and figure out if they could be the right pet for you and your family BEFORE you bring one of those cute little piglets home with you.
I am always willing to answer any questions or try to do whatever I can to help you with your mini pig pet, before or after you get one. I do suggest joining some of the many mini pig pages on facebook as I have learned a lot from all the different experiences of other mini pig owners. Pigs do get attached quickly and will mourn the loss of you and their family if you have to rehome. Sometimes it is necessary, but I want you to be as prepared as possible so we can avoid having to put a piglet through that unneeded stress :-) I am always willing to take a piglet back and will help rehome if necessary.
I also provide short and long term boarding to help you keep you pig or if you just need to go on vacation.
Colorado Cutie Pigs provides lifetime support and we give you a care packet with a lot of info for you to have on hand once you do bring your piglet home and I am always here to help answer any questions or concerns.
