Potbellypig

Potbelly Pig


Forget the myth about pigs being dirty and dumb. Potbelly pigs (PBPs) are intelligent, easy to train, affectionate, curious, playful, clean, odor-free, and non-allergenic.

Make sure you do your research on caring for a potbelly pig before deciding to bring one into your home.
