Legends. Seven potbelly pigs were rescued from a shelter. They were all surrendered from a backyard breeder. Pot-belly pigs, also known as micro-pig, knue kune and Juliana, have experienced a surge in popularity as house pets in recent years. However, this rise in popularity has led to severe consequences, including overbreeding and crossbreeding resulting in an alarming number of pigs being abandoned and surrendered to shelters. The root issue lies in the misconception that these piglets, initially adored and pampered by families, will forever remain miniature companions. However, these pigs grow and mature, their innate pig nature emerges and specific care and accommodations.
