My pigs get to be about the SIZE of a fat Cocker
Spaniel Dog or an English Bull dog (the one with the squished
face) about 13" tall. Usually around 50 pounds at adult
size & about 5 pounds when you get them. They live to
be about 10 to 20 years old -like a dog. The cuteness and
the different traits come from how the pigs are bred. I breed
one sweetheart with a cutie to get the best loving piggers
I Breed Your Pet Pig:
I DO NOT Inbreed or hold back on food to get
the small size. I overfeed my breeders so that they have plenty
of milk for the babies, so that the babies come out healthy.
of my piggers are Grand Champions. every time I go to a show I win at
least 1 Grand Champion trophy. I win around 8 at most shows! It really
is great fun! I clip their teeth and give them an iron shot at 1 day
old. The moms are all vaccinated while they are pregnant so they can
have healthy babies. All piggers need to be vaccinated (for erysipelas,
bordetella, pasteurella, parvovirus, leptospirosis 7 & Ivomec
wormer) as the Vet in your area recommends once a year, just like a dog.
Your brand new pig will have had all of its
shots when you get him or her. I guarantee they will be healthy
and without any defects. Your pig will be totally taken care
of. They will get the following things before you recieve
him or her:
*You need to give your pigger these
shots: Erysipelas/Rhinitis, Lepto 6 , Parvovirus ,
worm medication (with
ivomec = 1 dose per week for 3 weeks). They need to
be wormed with Ivomec about every 8 months - just put it on their
food- it prevents any skin problems &
helps promote a healthy pigger.
All of my piggers are registered and I have
a State Certified Herd. I don't have to do this but I do it
for the safety & love of my piggers.
WARNING ABOUT BUYING
All my piggers Parents & grandparents are registered back 25 yrs. with the Potbelly pig registrys.
You should see the parents of your baby to
see what size your baby will be when it's full grown (the
size it will be at 3 years old). It doesn't matter if you
get a boy or girl. You can't tell the difference in them once
they are fixed.
There are a lot of unscrupulous
breeders out there who are just in it for the money and not the love of
the piggers. They don't care if they sell you Piglets that are too
young, bitters or sick. I don't know how many calls I get from people
that are crying over the phone because their baby is dying in their
arms. Their baby can't eat because it was taken away from it's Mom tooo
early!! That bad breeder got his money and that's all he cares about. He
won't let you bring the pigger back to him or give you your money back.
A baby needs to stay with their Mom for about 7 weeks.
Can You Be Sure About My Piggers?
If you would like, I can give you
or email addresses of people that have bought one or
of my babies. There were three different registries,
but are all now out of business. All of my pigs are registered. You can
find me in a lot
of magazines that have written Articles about my
I. You can also call My VET., Dr. Greg Abshire, or
You are welcome to come see my piggers anytime-
I love to show them off and brag alittle on how sweet they
If for any reason you need to get rid
of your pigger, even years from when you bought it I will take it back (you can bring it or ship it back to me),
and if there is something wrong with it ( health wise, genetically) I
will give your money back.
What Does It Cost?
Your little pet pigger ranges
from $300.00 black / $350.00 exotic colors (up) for a pet to $750.00 up
for a breeder (plus vet and shipping charges).
I try to keep my pet prices affordable- the breeders cost
the most. I have babies almost all year 'round but I usually
have a WAITING list for my little sweeties.
If you would like to get on the waiting list, simply make a $200.00 deposit
for pet or $400.00 deposit on Breeders.
Customers Around the World
I have shipped piggers all over the U.S. including
HAWAII and all over the world to JAPAN, EUROPE, AFRICA & Alaska.
About a year ago, I shipped 5 more to Japan. They love the
little size & pug noses of my piggeers. One of the Japanese
men was a Vet from Tokyo. 4 other Japanese men flew over here
just to see my piggers! I took them to other breeders' farms
to see other potbelly pigs, but they didn't want theirs -
they wanted mine because of the small size & pug noses.
I know they will be taken care of, they bought two of them
from me two years ago & still have them, but wanted more
of my little darlings. We need to do the best for the pigger
so they will lead happy, healthy loving lives

a surprise we had last week where literally just around the corner from
our house, a neighbor got two little pigs from you. We spent all day
talking about our precious babies. I am on my way today to visit Nancy's
boys, LB and Harley. I thought I'd send a picture I took from my cell
phone( not the best resolution) of Nicholas(white/black a year old next
month) and Tucker(bk 1 1/2yrs old) with LB and Harley.
is so funny, is Nancy has seen our babies but her son hadn't and bought
two of them without knowing that you were the same breeder of our
babies. The son does not live there and we have not meet him. Nancy and
her son had an 850 lb pig named Harley who just past away this past
winter. Nancy was terribly sad and missed Harley. I believe he was 22
years old. Her son bought these two babies to cheer up his mother. The
husband had no idea and was not happy about the situation, but after
seeing our babies and their size, he was relieved that he would not have
to experience two 850 lbs pigs again.
have smiles on our faces, and love your babies so very much. My children
and I wish we could have a farm full of them. Thank you for filling our
lives with so much joy."
