Pigs can become very territorial. Molly (my pig years ago) got so everytime we had company she'd walk over to the visitor and swat them with her nose. That doesnt feel to good. She'd hit them then walk off to another room and lay down. She was letting them know this was her home. We had to find her another home because we had young children, plus their friends coming in and Molly had become to territorial. I worried about the children with her. We enjoyed her, really did. I still laugh when I think of her. I know that yes, if they are raised around a dog they should do just fine......They go into heat every 18 days which last for 3 days and if you didnt know what was going on you'd swear something seriously wrong was going on with the pig. I loved Molly and if ever I had a place in the country, I'd do it again!

When i took my son to the shelter to adopt a dog, there was a little pig i just fell in love with..we tried so hard to talk AAron into this pig..but he said (in his deep little boy voice) i ain't walkin no pig.....so of course i had to go home and draw a pig piece. We came home with Trudy..the dog that would not stop licking me..it got so bad i had to pull my sleeves down over my hands, and cover my face when i slept..nothing would discourage her so she went to live at my mom's..and is now a very very old woman. She licked me 24/7..it was driving me insane! She as been with mom for 14 years now.

Breeze is right. Their urine and feces is particularly, er, penetrating. They prefer to be clean and will use a litter box, but the box gets rank very quickly. Also, most of the pot bellied pigs out there now have been badly bred and don't stay very small.

Referring to your thread in the puppy forum, if you don't have time to take Frodo for walks more than three or four times a week, you really don't have time to deal with either another dog or a pig, let alone both of them together.
