Welcome to my Teacup Pig website

Are you looking for a pet pig who will stay the size of a teacup?

Good! You've come to the right site! I can't give you one, and neither can anyone else anywhere in the world, but at least I can tell you what size the smallest pigs really are, and show you what they look like when fully grown. I can sell you a beautiful piglet who will grow into an adult who is bulldog size, and that is the smallest that you can get.

             

                  

 

My 6 e-books about Teacup Pigs

in Kindle MOBI, ePub and PDF formats

Do you know about a teacup pig's 'attack button' or 'sleep button'? Or that a male can use chemical warfare like a skunk, if his life is threatened? Or what causes pet pigs to become abnormally aggressive? Or that teacup piglets can make piglets at 12 weeks of age? Or that teacup pigs don't mark their territory with urine as dogs do? Or....well the books are just full of amazing things about them that you wouldn't have even thought about! There’s also everything I’ve learnt about them as pets, and in the wild, for nearly twenty years.

My Adult Teacup Pigs

All my piglets' parents are between staffie and bulldog size - about 35 to 45cm high - and I can pick many of them up if they're not fat! If you think that that is much bigger than what you had in mind, then please read on...

You do not get pet pigs smaller than this anywhere else in the world. 

All the fancy names - teacup pigs, tea cup pigs (south african spelling!), micro pigs, nano pigs, pocket pigs, miniature pigs, miniature potbellied pigs, Juliana pigs, Royal Dandy pigs, and other exotic names, are all just brand names given by breeders to market their pigs. They're all just miniature potbellied pigs that have been selected for small size, and are not specific breeds. (And yes, they all are potbellied pigs as their tummies get huge when they are fat, and if their legs are very short, can even touch the ground! If they aren't fat then they don't have potbellies.)

And none of them are smaller than bulldog size.

The 'teacup pigs' of Pennywell farm in England grow to springer spaniel size (about labrador size).

The 'micro pigs' in England 'knee-height' or the size of labradors.

The smallest Kunekunes of New Zealand and England are 50cm or below.

The americans also don't have pigs much smaller than knee-height. (look at rescue sites and pig societies for data - I haven't found an american breeder's site yet that is honest and shows photos of fully grown adults 4 years and older.)

Those who say that they have fully mature adults (4yrs old) that are the size of jack russels, or house cats, or even smaller (yes- 16cm) are talking nonsense! There are no such pigs.  

The smallest pigs in the world are wild pygmy hogs in Asia and are supposedly 25 to 35 cm high.

I've bred miniature pigs for 18 years and have plenty of happy customers who can vouch for me: as can my vet throughout this time. 

Avoid being conned by fraudsters and ask for references!

 

Fraudsters 'outed' at last!

Would you like to buy one of these cuties? 4 people I know of did but got nothing for their money.

For nearly 20 years I've witnessed fraudsters conning people to part with their money and get nothing in return, or get pigs that grow massively bigger than their 'guarantees'. I'm now going to 'out' the people who I know of as dishonest or downright criminal at this time. I've started naming names! Click on the link 'Fraudsters Outed' at the top of the page, and share it with your friends, to put a stop to people falling victim to these crooks. 

1st October 2013: another victim has just paid R5,500 and not got a piglet. 

Don't become a victim

Arm yourself with knowledge!

Read my website & books

so that you KNOW what pigs are available, and how fraudsters operate.

And also so that you are fair to any piglet who you buy so that you don't do her the injustice and hurt of rejecting her because she's not what you expected.
