    Hmmm good point Loren. RSPCA SYdney is forever sending me their surrender pei, in fact I have two more due in next week. Will give my contact a call tomorrow. I also have a contact in Burwood (Vic) who I will also call tomorrow. At least with contacts within their walls, I am likely to get an honest opinion (I hope)!!

    Try animal lib - they do a lot with chooks and pigs - they may be happy to get a home for a former farmed pig

    You will need to check with your local council as pigs are not regarded by most of them as pets but as farm animals, used only for our consumption. I certainly hope you can have one they make great pets.
