    This is a good example of why pigs simply shouldn’t be kept as pets. Many people are taken in by unscrupulous dealers who claim to be selling “miniature” or “teacup” pigs, which don’t actually exist. These are normal potbellied pigs which will, unless deliberately stunted via malnutrition, grow to an adult size of around 100 lbs. This is where many owners end up abandoning the animals.
