Coco & Lulu
Coco and Lulu are both Vietnamese Pot bellied pigs with a bit of something else
Coco and Lulu are both Vietnamese Pot bellied pigs with a bit of something else, VPBâ€™s have squashed noses as opposed to snouts, these two have snouts. They were bred by a current so called micro pig breeder as miniature pigs and sold at over three hundred pounds each to a couple who had very clearly told him that they only had a small house and garden, he actually sold them as miniature house pigs! Well these two having outgrown the house were then built a shed and given the run of the garden, they soon trashed it and their owners who absolutely loved them to bits grew desperate as they realised that they would no longer be able to accommodate them.
Can you believe the heartbreak of it slowly dawning on you that though you truly love them you can no longer give the required space to your two pets simply because you do not have it and moving is not an option? Lynne and Kevin did not even email or phone us, they arrived to plead their case and eventually Coco and Lulu arrived also and took up residence. As a point of interest they came from the same breeder as Lilly, the so called micro pig who had to be put to sleep.
Coco and Lulu are now coming up to their second birthday, they were born in the October of 2009. They are a friendly and delightful pair of pigs and their former owners visit them regularly even though they live a couple of hours away from Mossburn. We can only hope and pray that they do not suffer the same fate as Lilly.
