Do pot bellied pigs make good pets?


A lady is trying to find a good home for her pot bellied pig of only 4 months (all papers and vaccines in order plus vet info): my concern is that while I am familar with animals owning a small farm, I'm not too familar with pot bellied pigs. My dog of 14 years died a few years ago and I can't replace him with another dog. I thought since I work from home so much and have other animals, this little animal might make a great pet for my 3 year old as she loves the other animals. The other thing is her neighbours have already tried to poison him twice and she just wants a good home. I care.

    That's different than what this lady said, and I was wondering about space. I was thinking surely he'll need space: she said he's fine once walked. Thanks Mary, I'll go with your Aunt's experience.

    Ok that's certainly not something I could deal with, having a 3 year old too. Thanks Ashlie, I guess this little piggy is not for us.
