Some Pig

A miniature variant of the NZ kune kune pig has become the must-have pet in Britain. Chris Murray, co-owner of Pennywell Farm in Devon, began breeding the pigs nine years ago. He crossed kune kune with local miniature breeds, resulting in a pig that grows no bigger than a cocker spaniel. “They are easy to house train and have a good temperament,” he says. “A sow would normally snap at you if you picked up one of her litter, but these are amazingly content.” British TV personality Jonathan Ross has bought two of the pigs as pets for £150 each, and Murray has had requests from as far away as Australia.
