A teacup pig should not be put up for adoption until it has been weaned from its mother and is eating solid food. This usually occurs around four to six weeks after the piglet is born.
Teacup pigs come in numerous varieties, and they are becoming increasingly popular pets. Like dogs, they are extremely intelligent, but they tend to be faster learners than most canine companions. They can be trained to use a litter box, and they respond well to crate training. Because teacup pigs do not have fur, they are hypoallergenic, making them ideal pets for people who are unable to have a dog or cat.
