I am blessed that I stumbled on your site. I was looking for Tea Cup pigs. I wanted to buy one I even found a breeder that was warning people that if a seller is advertising their pig as Tea cups and are 500 or under then to beware that they are not true Tea cup pigs she said that they at least need to be 1000.00 or more beacuse of the breeding that goes into a tea cup pig so I was considering a Tea Cup at a high price. Now reading your site I will be very careful I will even go back to the breeder who warned that Tea Cup Pigs should cost more then 500.00 and see what her weight limit is on her pigs. I am going to slow way down and take great care to educate myself on pigs. I want one but I do want one that will be much smaller then a pot belly pig if there is such a thing. Thanks again for all the stories and honesty provided. CJ

Thank you for this website. I am the proud mommy of 5 rescued pot belly pigs and now 10 babies (our latest adoption was pregnant). All of our piggies were adopted from animal control after they were dumped for getting too big. 2 of our "mini" pigs are well over 200 lbs each lol. I love my boys (and girl) to death and actually prefer the big guys. I try to educate people on the TRUTH about the size of these "teacup pigs". I showed pictures of our babies when they were born to show how small they looked. They are still tiny (at 3 weeks) but they are growing. I have had people email me about them asking if I will guarantee that they will stay under 60 lbs and I refuse. I tell them the truth. They can reach up to 300 lbs. Mom is small (60 lbs) but she is thin and we do not know how old she is. For all we know she could be 6 months or younger. Would love to send pictures of our kids being pigs like they are supposed to but I can;t find a picture uploader,

I curently have 3 potbelly pigs that live at the house in the country and i love them dearly and will never give them up, no matter how large they get, but i've been lucky with proper feeding their still at a managable weight, but i have been wanting a teacup every since i saw one that a lady had and said it was 8 yrs old (who knows ?) and was only about 13in tall and a nice weight, but every sight i look at where they say thay are teacups look just like my 3 big girls when they were a baby.....baby pigs are baby pigs and all look alike. i just found your site tonight and have read every story and now have second thoughts about a true teacup pig...thanks for informing people of all the misjustice done to these wonderful lovable animals...i'll be looking for a new pig but i don't think a true teacup size is in the picture thanks for informing everyone on the truth about a pig that can sell for several thousand as a teacup but can be bout as a regular potbelly for fifty.

what a shame on these stories... i have a few teacup mini's.. they havent overgrown.. i havent starved them to keep them tini.... id say.. do your homework before you buy... read.. learn.. look around.. people talk in the most oddest of places online...there are reputable non lying breeders out there... if they arent showing the growing progressions of any of their pigs.. do not buy.... if the price is outrageous... do not buy.... if it seems too good to be true... its probably a scam.... and too.. as long as ITS THE TRUTH.. NAME THE LIARS... ITS OK.. WE ALL CARE TO KNOW WHO LIES.... YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO YOUR OPINION...always... im so sorry some got taken... but too... all the baby pigs cant be assured to be totally tiny.. theres always that stinker that grows.. if youre going to take an animal on.. its for life.. be sure you want it.. no matter what.... its not fair to the animal to be in home after home after home....

I was looking through the thrifty nickel adds hear in Provo Utah and came across an add saying Extremely Rare TEACUP JULiANA PIGS THESE ARE THE SMALLEST PIGS AVAILABLE THE MAKE WONDERFUL HOUSE PETS! WAY SMARTER THEN A DOG STARTING AT $1000 (801)- 857-1451 It was Dec 2, 2010 and close to X-Mas we called and said they was full Juliana and said she had papers so I could keep her here in the city I have a variance ( permission from the city to have one) for a papered pig saying it won't get over the weight limit. She told me they was on they way to give her my address and number she would send them when they came , I thought it would be like with the dogs so I trusted her. she wanted to meet some where to give me the pig I wanted to see the parents but she said she was on there way out of town for x-mas , So we meet at pet mart in Orem Utah and she gave me a bill of sale for $1200.00 and handed me the pig with some food and bottle. She told me she was only Three days old keep her warm and feed her every about 2 hours. MY so called Juliana pig weighs about 150LBS and is so big she has a tummy that drags the grown . Later writting to a women at Texas tiny, the women that i got my pig from had just bought a baby pig (Nellie) full Juliana from her in Oct 2010 to young to have babies yet. She is so cute. The women that I got mine from was using NELLIE picture in her adds on the internet (Hoobly ads) leading you to think that was what you was getting. ittybittypigs.com I have called her and wrote her trying to see her pigs and get the papers saying she was a full Juliana , she answered once and won't answer any more. So if there is any one else that got one from her name is Julie L please write me back firstname.lastname@example.org There are some people that said she went to the craig list and got some pot belly pigs and was saleing them as juliana.

Am so glad that someone shared this site with me. My story is so similar. I got Hammy off Craigs List. Didn't know much but he was FREE. I have always had animals and most are cast offs. Hammy was a sick little guy but my vet of 30 plus years pulled him through! I love him so much but a pig is not for everyone! They require...no, they DEMAND your attention! Thanks for so much good information. I will pass it along!

Thank you for all the good information that has been compiled here. I have never owned a pot belly pig, but became very interested in them when I visited the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab Utah. Yvonne McIntosh, the manager of Piggy Paradise, educated me and now I try to help educate others. I have been in dog/cat rescue for many years so I am familiar with ignorance of all kinds. Now I'm familiar with "pignorance". I shared this link with someone who said their friend was going to start breeding "teacup" pot belly pigs. Lord help us all!! I hope you won't mind but, I would like to use your information to educate others on my Facebook page.

Keep up the good work on this website! Glad to hear theses critters are literally the victims of scammers and theses tiny guys do not really exist. So terrible that people get stuck with them as the pigs are the true victims.
