Piggy Smalls and the Mini Pig Trade

Piggy Smalls is a four-year-old Vietnamese potbellied pig who was originally sold to a loving family by a breeder advertising “mini pigs” who would remain small forever. Like all potbellied pigs, Piggy quickly grew to more than 150 pounds, and his family could no longer keep him.
