Tanner is the pig at the top of the page. He's the only one I didn't "rescue". The breeder I got Tanner from seemed to care about his pigs and take care of them, but where they went from there was not his concern. He was selling these babies as city pets to anyone who wanted one. I don't care what you read in books...pot-bellied pigs do NOT belong in the's just not fair to them. Within a very short period of time, this breeder added close to 100 pot-bellied pigs to this area.

Tanner is a card. He is 3 years old now and 110 pounds. He comes in from a hard days rooting as round as a beach ball. He's so full that he can't even lie down without effort. Sometimes he just stands there...trying to figure out the best approach. By morning, he's back to normal. Apparently grass produces a lot of gas. I try to tell him this...but he just won't listen! He's a sweetheart. He even had his picture in the Edmonton Sun and the Grande Prairie paper recently...he's a star!
