When we had our pot bellied pig and our rabbitin the same area, they got along quite well. We had our old bun Smokeyin the same pen as the pig and Willy always sat near Smokey's hutch.

Willy was quite aggressive with humans and would chase after your ankles, but he seemed to enjoy the company of Smokey.

I'd just keep an eye on the two. If the pig seems to be getting irrated or anything, I would seperate them.

I lovethe little pigs :).

My best friend has an indoor viatnamese pig...he's so little and cute! Really furry, too. Most people don't realizethat pigs are easily housebroken (either going outside, or in a giantlitterbox) just like bunnies! I'd love to see pictures of your piggie!

Check your local zoning laws before getting one. Farm animals may be prohibited.

They can be dolls - i went up to one in a pet shop & startedscratching it behind its ear & it fell right over in bliss!:)
