Tango said:Whoa! I missed that pet part entirely. I'm very sorry. George is right about the potbelly. I don't have the same experience he does but let me assure you they will still get big, even if you pay a premium price for a "teacup." And pigs need company. I don't recommend domestics for a pet for a young boy. They are boisterous and may not mean any harm but could harm your son if he is under 12 , imo. Sorry about my first post to you.

My son is only 4 but very bright when it comes to animals. He has been raised around all kinds of animals such as goats, chickens and rabbits At our old homestead. He always reminds me they need fed and etc. He has chores right now. He feeds and waters his pet rabbit and he feeds the 2 St. bernards we have. He is pretty responsible for 4 years old and he is big for his age. He isn't afraid of anything except maybe his grandmas rooster that loves to flog him.
