Are you ready to become a Piggy Parent?
It is very important to us that our piggies find forever homes. Piggies require a 20 year commitment from their new family. They develop a very stong bond with their family and they suffer when they are removed from their family. They are very smart, in fact they have the intelligence of a 4 year old human child. This allows them the capacity to learn very quickly and respond with intelligence to many situations ... They will express likes and dislikes just like humans. They will sit with you and watch TV.... yes WATCH. Ours' love shows with animals and bright colors.
As piglets they do require some patience and understanding. They need to understand that they are safe with you and that you will take care of them. All they know is their home with their parents and us at the farm. Their stay at our home is two weeks during their 7-8th week, so a new home is quite a difference and they need to get to know you. No worries, they will learn to do lots of new tricks with you quite quickly. The more you are willing to teach them and help them understand, the better your relationship will be.
Expect the little piggy to be squeely at first. They feel very scared when their feet are off the ground. This is not natural for them. It would be as if a giant were picking you up and cuddling you for the first time... it would be scary. Holding them close to your person and letting them know they are safe is the best way to get them used to you. They do not smell bad, if you give them a proper piggy diet and clean their litter regularly. They can be potty trained in two days ... try to get a dog to do that. They love to keep their sleep and eating area clean and will potty in a designated place.
