Both pigs and wild boars are of the Suidae family of even-toed ungulates. They are one of the eldest domesticated house animals (for about 9000 years) and today there are many races of pigs. Each one does have its own advantage - and the main puropse is for meat production.

Some pigs are trained as a "beagle" due to their excellent ability to smell, e.g. for finding drugs. Scientistic researches did evaluate that the intelligence of pigs and some primates are about the same. Of course the prejustice of being a stupid animal is refuted! Also other prejustices, e.g. regarding the cleanliness, had been proven wrong withing the years. Quite the contrary, pigs are known as being very clean, social - and in some aspects very close to men.

In the past years miniature pigs have become popular house pets. They look a little different from the domestic pig: They have a straight tail and upright ears and are obviously much smaller, reaching only up to 40 - 75 cm (~16'' - 30").

In general pigs are associated with luck. Little figures are supposed to bring luck to the owner. In German speaking regions the known phrase of "having a pig" means somebody does have a stroke of luck. This term might be originated in the middle age. In competitions the last one was lucky to win a pig as a consolation prize.

Sorry, our plush micro pig can't be no gurantee for luck, but playing with it makes one happy. This can be seen as a form of luck.
