well id be more worried about the pig hurting the dog!! LOL Ive seen some nasty pigs. They can be vicious, If you do get one do what you would in any situation try and get a baby pig, and surpurvise any activity, Im sure you already knew that lol any way theres no reason why you cant get one.

I always thought pigs were gentle. Hasnt anyone seen on Animal Planet like when a mother wolf dies, her babies are nursed by a pig? Or even tigers sometimes.

Pigs are very cool! They're actually like dogs, in a way. I've seen some pretty cool pigs, doing tricks and such. If you brought the baby pig up with the dog, they'd be fine together.

i have seen all kinds of animals get along..as long as their leader teaches them compassion...i just can not wait to see pics of the two together! My guy Jim had a pet rat named Curly, that was the biggest pet rat i ever saw, one night while Bronki and i were on the floor watching tv, Curly up and decided to jump down from his tank, he had a board across the top he used as a deck..anyway he jumped down, walked across the floor and curled up against bronki's leg resting his little head on bronki's paw. Bronki just looked down like Oh My....and didn't move a muscle, bless him, he was such a gentle soul!

I've heard of dogs and pigs living calmly together. Someday I'm going to have a potbelly pig and a miniature horse living inside with me (and my dogs).
