Potbelly Pigs are actually very friendly, sociable, charismatic animals. I would not recommend a full-size Pig as a domestic pet, but the miniature variety make exceedingly good pets and are highly underrated. You still however will need a fairly big garden and lots of space as they are foragers by nature and do tend to dig up plants and roots. They get on very well with other pets such as dogs and cats and are normally. very warm and affectionate pets. Although people do not normally perceive pigs to be a good option as a pet, they make excellent pets much like dogs do and some go as far to say that they are a lot better as pets than dogs are. I would recommend this pet for poeple who are looking for a pet that will stand out or will be a completely new experience for the onwer. Do you research before getting a pig, but if you do and you buy right, you will definately be rewarded.
