Not sure Marko but by definition they are considered livestock and if this classification has not changed then they would not be allowed within city limits. Try consulting with the MSPCA as I am certain they will know.

Why? You thinking of getting one?

Carmy and I are all muddled these days...we don't know what we are thinking but we love pigs especially cute little ones. Yeah i doubt they are allowed either but I'll call the SPCA...

Thx!

A cute little pot belly pig grows up to be 120 lbs. if you're lucky, 150 to 250 lbs. if you're not.

Yup - I know that but I have a lot to learn about them.

Not sure they are good at climbing stairs for example, anyone know the answer to that?

Thx!

Marko I have a coworker that started off with 1 pot bellied pig named Luther! He is the cutest thing. He is very big now. We used to laugh because she also has cats, dogs, a gecco and other creatures and Luther. He needed alot of training but she managed to litter train him as well. Now Luther lives in the city of hamilton and I dont know the rules but she must have had no issues because she now has gotten a 2nd one.

They have quite the personality from what she tells me. The MAJOR problem she had was that she allowed him to sleep in their bed and it was very very difficult to train him to not go on the bed.

She asked me for help and I told her to get him a doggy bed and teach him by laying there with him...Well she did and she fell asleep...when she woke up she was on the floor on the doggie bed and Luther was in her bed snoring away!!!!!
