On the eve of the New Year, which, according to the Chinese horoscope, will be the year of the yellow earthen pig, a rush for mini-pigs began in Russia. Many buy pigs as a gift, as a symbol of the coming year. But they also get pigs for commercial purposes, as recently photo shoots with these animals have become very relevant.
The "Club of pig lovers" and the "Club of pig lovers" warn those wishing to purchase mini-pigs so that they think well before buying.
Since after the holidays, many abandon their pets.
A whole wave of oversold, surrendered and abandoned animals is expected, and there are several reasons for this:
Small pigs will not remain so - they will certainly grow, and many may not be dwarfs at all, but pigs up to 65 cm tall at the withers. Therefore, when buying, you must very carefully choose breeders.
Mini-pigs must be taught to the tray and educated.
Pigs, it turns out, are able to mark their territory, especially if they are unsterilized.
They, like other pets, need to be vetted and vaccinated.
In addition, these are very social animals that need affection and attention.
They need a certain diet.
Mumps are inventive and tricky when it comes to getting food or a way to entertain yourself.
Mini-pigs also experience emotions: anger, joy, disappointment, and may even cry.
Therefore, it is better to carefully think through everything in advance and make an informed decision so as not to be disappointed afterwards.
These pigs, of course, are cute, but if there is no desire for 10 years, or even 20 (namely, they live so much) to take care of the pet and share a shelter with it, then it’s better to get along with New Year’s with beautiful decorative figures and other yellow symbols pigs. We wish you a happy and kind holiday to celebrate, and good luck will remain with you!
